Likelihood to Recommend

arcplan

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.

Izenda

White labeling/OEM scenarios are where Izenda shines. It's a nice solution and they have a good handle on the pricing. The system is customizable enough to do everything that's needed. We view it like unfinished furniture where we have to put the finishing touches on the system in order to make it work for our use case. Where it falls a bit is in usability. There are some rough edges which have to be coded around.

Izenda

  • User and tenant management is excellent. It is very simple to implement and easy to manage.
  • The configurability and customizability are excellent. We have access to all aspects of the system and have rebranded and configured single sign on. The users really like it.
  • Reports and visualizations work. There's lots of flexibility and users enjoy creating reports themselves.

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.

  • They are in rapid development mode and some of the releases have had QA problems. The offering is quite young so this is expected.
  • There are several usability issues like sorting and other basic items which others have solved. This is an area of improvement when compared to other, more refined BI tools. We communicate in grids and the grid controls need some work.
  • Support responsiveness is as advertised but a bit slow when compared to other vendors we work with. In other words, they say they'll get back to us in 48 hours and they do what they say but we'd appreciate faster responses.

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.

Izenda

We compared to other end user tools like Qlik, Tableau and Power BI. These tools are very refined but not positioned for OEM/Embedded use cases. The closest we came was logi and Birst and the price and business model of Izenda was much more appealing
