Pros and Cons
- Apptio Technology Business Management is easy to use from a reporting standpoint. Reports can be created quickly and end users can filter as needed to retrieve the desired data.
- Apptio Technology Business Management has been able to eliminate manual processes that involved numerous Excel spreadsheets. This enables the users to spend more time on analytics and less time on data manipulation.
- The transparency that Apptio Technology Business Management provides at the click of a button helps reduce the number of questions that the IT area receives. When questions are raised they are more focused and easier to understand.
- Apptio Technology Business Management struggles with some of the report formatting. We are using it in place of Excel and simple things like freezing the header and the left column are not available in Apptio Technology Business Management.
- Reports can become very large and the scroll bars on the page will impact users. When creating a report, the monitor size is very important. If you are working on a big screen the reports will be difficult to use on a smaller laptop screen.
- The refresh or warming time can become an issue based on the number of reports and the amount of data that you have in the system. Being able to identify reports that are driving this up are not easily identified.
