If you have multiple sources of data that you need to compile into one to cross report, this is a good tool to do that. The connections of those data sources definitely need an expert, so keep that in mind. Also keep in mind, that if you are starting from square 0 on database queries and reporting, there will be a learning curve. I think once you have the base knowledge though, RJ Metrics is relatively intuitive, has a nice UI, and most importantly, allows us to build the reports that we need with confidence that the information included in the reports is up to date and correct.

iHub is a decent enough environment that it serves our needs. We can have unlimited users and it can tie into AD although we do not use that feature currently. It is a decent place to store all of the reports in one location, even though for us it is not visually appealing to the end users.iHub is not a place where you want to create robust/interactive dashboards for end users to drill through and follow a "story".

Pros

Magento BI (formerly RJMetrics)

  • It is relatively easy to manipulate the time period in which you want to see your report. This is important for our business because we are constantly analyzing sales month over month, quarter over quarter, and year over year. RJ makes it easy to toggle between these time ranges on the same report.
  • The visualizers available for reports are what you would expect out of a product like this. You have the ability to view your results in tables and a multitude of charts.
  • The ability to customize dashboards and rearrange reports quickly is great and intuitive!

Magellan BI & Reporting

  • It is fairly easy to set the sharing rules for a report/dashboard.
  • They have a decent amount of time frame options for setting a schedule to generate a report.
  • The support is mostly helpful and timely if you have an issue.

Cons

Magento BI (formerly RJMetrics)

  • I don't have any database or SQL training, so it took me a little longer than desired to get started up and comfortable with RJ. I wasn't present when we on-boarded with RJ though, which could have been part of the problem, but you definitely need a very basic level of query language and formula writing knowledge to hit the ground running and use this tool to its full capability.
  • RJ gives you the ability to set email updates on whichever reports you choose. I wish that these reports were a little more customizable to give only the pertinent information from a large report to the parties who need it. IE, customize the view for marketing vs. design but all based on the same report.
  • It would be helpful to get an email from RJ with tips and tricks (short videos or blogs) to be able to continue to learn more about this tool.

  • Setting up a "dashboard" is extremely lacking in functionality. The different chart widgets you place on the page do not interact with each other. When you select an item from one do not expect it to highlight or filter another.
  • The speed and stability are not great, but maybe that is just our environment not being up to snuff...even though we are above the "recommended" settings.
  • The main GUI for a user is TERRIBLE. You log into a File Tree format where you have to navigate folders to reach the correct dashboard. There are ways around this, but it would either require an expensive payment to the Professional Services team to revamp to UI or another option they gave us was to create the "Default Dashboard" and provide that link to users and in that Dashboard, you use a new tab to include the navigation back to the main screen so that at least on the initial load the user is taken to a friendly looking dashboard instead of a file tree.

Our instance of iHub does not stack up against the other larger BI tools out today. It is a good place to store reports in a central location that allows users to run very specific reports on demand, but it is not a place I would want to store all of my "dashboards". As far as holding individual reports that are specific to an individual need, it is a great tool. If you want to create a report that will be used as a Template for a Form or a Label, iHub is a good choice to store and schedule the report or call it via API to generate it and return it to your calling app.
