H2O

Most suited if in little time you wanted to build and train a model. Then, H2O makes life very simple. It has support with R, Python and Java, so no programming dependency is required to use it. It's very simple to use.If you want to modify or tweak your ML algorithm then H2O is not suitable. You can't develop a model from scratch.

SAP Crystal

Generation of templated reports is the strong suit of SAP Crystal. Allows users to change formats in templates bases on requirement with minimal effort.Automated report delivery requires the user to be aware of sql which cannot be expected from all users.Should support more document export formats and improve the UI for SAP B1 Users

Pros

H2O

  • Excellent analytical and prediction tool
  • In the beginning, usage of H20 Flow in Web UI enables quick development and sharing of the analytical model
  • Readily available algorithms, easy to use in your analytical projects
  • Faster than Python scikit learn (in machine learning supervised learning area)
  • It can be accessed (run) from Python, not only JAVA etc.
  • Well documented and suitable for fast training or self studying
  • In the beginning, one can use the clickable Flow interface (WEB UI) and later move to a Python console. There is then no need to click in H20 Flow
  • It can be used as open source

SAP Crystal

  • Crystal Reports allows us to create a consistent template for all of our reports.
  • Crystal Reports and Server allows us to house a repository for all of our reports to make them easy to find and update when necessary.
  • Crystal Reports can connect to a wide variety of data sources.
  • Crystal Reports can be a little daunting when first implementing. There are a lot of nuances in learning how to truly master this software and it can be frustrating at times.

Cons

H2O

  • Better documentation
  • Improve the Visual presentations including charting etc
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Crystal

  • The export of reports to Excel is very cumbersome and the results are difficult to format.
  • The design of reports and the graphical features (e.g. charts) feel quite rigid.
  • The learning curve for a non-programmer is incredibly steep, making Crystal a specialty tool.

We have been using this product for so many years and it has truly become a cornerstone to our business processes when it comes to developing and distributing information via reports. We currently have over 500 reports developed to date over about 30 systems and that will continue to grow as user needs change.

It is a household name and the reporting has always been consistent in the last few years that I've used it, so the usability has always been to a very good standard. When we have new people coming into the department, after a bit of training, they are able to pick up the reporting and continue to improve on it.

The is presence of user guides and documentation for usage of SAP Crystal, especially when covering common flows and connection to common data sources. However, there were some difficulties encountered when pursuing documentation to create organization-specific templates that had some deviation from the prebuilt templates. Getting direct support from SAP Crystal team was possible, but the lead time was longer

Just like any other implementation: When designing the differing reports, get end users' input, make sure to design the reports so that they display the information that the company requires, in the best and clearest way possible.
Test, test, test, revise when needed, and, particularly, do sufficient training so users are comfortable using Crystal Reports!

Alternatives Considered

H2O

Both are open source (though H2O only up to some level). Both comprise of deep learning, but H2O is not focused directly on deep learning, while Tensor Flow has a "laser" focus on deep learning. H2O is also more focused on scalability. H2O should be looked at not as a competitor but rather a complementary tool. The use case is usually not only about the algorithms, but also about the data model and data logistics and accessibility. H2O is more accessible due to its UI. Also, both can be accessed from Python. The community around TensorFlow seems larger than that of H2O.

Crystal reports is useful in case we want to import data from data base . We can write queries in it but Google Charts require to be implemented in our application using code so crystal reports is better than Google Charts.

Return on Investment

H2O

  • Positive impact: saving in infrastructure expenses - compared to other bulky tools this costs a fraction
  • Positive impact: ability to get quick fixes from H2O when problems arise - compared to waiting for several months/years for new releases from other vendors
  • Positive impact: Access to H2O core team and able to get features that are needed for our business quickly added to the core H2O product

SAP Crystal

  • It is a decent buy for specific departments in terms of reporting capabilities but updates and cost (frequent) demands are higher with the benefits offered.
  • So long as the requirements are not ever changing, with scheduling functionality, it's a handsome tool.
