Magellan BI & Reporting

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".

ZAP Business Intelligence

ZAP is an incredible tool for those IT Organizations that need to stay lean. Within days, I was able to implement the ZAP solution instead of hiring Developers and ETL developers to tie into multiple Data infrastructures.

Pros

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.

ZAP Business Intelligence

  • Extremely Robust Interface
  • Implementation and Connection to Data Stores extremely fast. I was able to implement BI reporting within days.
  • Fantastic Support
  • Cost Effective Tool for any IT organization. Reduction in FTE, Data Reporting Deployment, and Cube Creation.

Cons

Magellan BI & Reporting

  • 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.

ZAP Business Intelligence

  • I would love to see a strong integration with Google Analytics. ZAP works great with CRM platforms but would be interested to get the metrics on how marketing campaigns are tied to organic traffic and PPC.

Alternatives Considered

Magellan BI & Reporting

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.

ZAP has a better interface and user-friendly.
