It is very suitable for complete corporate BI solutions. If you see BI as embedding information into your organization and business processes, and thus as more than just a few scattered dashboards and reports, arcplan is your platform. It's less suitable for ad-hoc reporting and data discovery. It can do it (everything is possible), but there is strong competition in this area.

Google Charts

Google Charts can fit in your company if you're seeking a resource that can be managed, customized and also deployed all over the web, mobile apps or just add as an embedded object within your website or intranet resources. Can do awesome things for Finance entrepreneurs who wanted to take out the most from reports, dashboards with statistical analysis with a wide data source. For those who don't like web coding, or just get upset by handling crossing information from sheets to databases, this won't be the tool that fits with the business readiness that you might seek with IT developers that can understand the requirements wanted to be shown by Google Chart.

Pros

arcplan

  • Excellent dashboard.
  • Well advanced BI metrics.
  • Better interfacing to other DW.

Google Charts

  • Using simple line charts, we can show how the usage of resources is within our team.
  • The most common way to use Google Charts is with simple JavaScript that you embed in your web page, and we did that to showcase and share our results.
  • All chart types are populated with data using the DataTable class, making it easy to switch between chart types as you experiment to find the ideal appearance.

Cons

arcplan

  • Positioning and marketing. Most BI vendors use a non-technical sales strategy and focus on shiny, sexy dashboards to sell the story. In order to position arcplan fairly and correctly, the technical and business advantages need to be part of a sales story. So, it is not really an easy product to sell to customers, if it has to compete with now-to-wow-five-minute products.
  • Learning/training for developers. It's easy to learn the basics of arcplan, because the interface is logical. But nothing prevents a beginning developer from creating a monstrous application, because there is no prescribed architecture. It really takes some experience to become a good arcplan architect. It's a disadvantage resulting from one of arcplan's biggest advantages.
  • Data connectors: arcplan standard comes with a connector of your choice. Additional connectors need to be purchased separately. Many other products come with a full range of connectors.

Google Charts

  • Processing speed with relatively large datasets. 10000 rows across 15 columns takes some processing time to manipulate, even 1500 rows can take 1-2 minutes just to process.
  • More customization, particularly for visual improvements like color gradients. We're happy that finally the borders of charts can be removed.
  • Fix the #REF! errors for the IMPORTRANGE formula. If you want businesses to use your products, it can't break every day multiple times because your formula for some reason doesn't want to work. A refresh can fix it some of the time, but it shouldn't break period.

Google Charts is a good product. It's widely supported with deep documentation and a large community. But for me, it wasn't customizable enough. When we started with simple charts, it was great, but as we got deeper and more complex, our needs outgrew the library. If I was going forward, I would choose a more barebones library with more freedom and extensibility.

Alternatives Considered

arcplan

Personally, I prefer QlikView not because it's more stable but simply just for the looks of the dashboard. One of my clients in Sydney recently moved from arcplan to QlikView. The reason was mainly looks and that QlikView has more training materials for the support users to train with. So in all, it does not really stack well against QlikView.

I use Google Charts in most instances, because our company loves being able to easily share slide decks with a shareable link on a cloud-based solution. Excel has much more functionality, but it's more difficult to update with a coworker (we have to email the presentation back and forth).
