It depends on extensibility, set-up, access & style. Actuate performs fairly well, but has performance issues because it sits on top of eclipse, which sits on top of Java. Extensibility usually comes at that price. Set-up is fairly straightforward and it can be secured.

They need to better identify what their product excels at. I'm continually trying to think of new ideas to run through Composable Analytics. They need to better Identify what this product shines at and market themselves to that subset of an industry

  • Multiple levels of user security

  • Testing Commission Runrates
  • Testing tying Commissions to performance of the fund.
  • Easily overlay two data streams to compare perf vs index, but many products do that already.

Cons

  • The debug tool that came with the Actuate 8 developer was poorly written in my opinion; compiling a report could be very difficult when a number of functions were being called.
  • There wasn't any reporting that could be run to download Actuate utilization statistics. Analytics had to be done by manually reviewing who had been running reports.
  • At times when the Actuate Server would become overloaded the only solution was to restart it. There wasn't a way to clear up the list of pending report requests.

  • I can not really comment because I do not have a complete fluency with the product as of now.
  • Recreating the wheel on some uses but i guess that may be user error.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at a few other competitor's products but based on value for features chose Actuate for its total cost of ownership.

I would compare them to custom system like Morgan Stanley has that I use. A more appropriate company is Novus or LightKeeper. This product is potentially much cheaper but Novus and Lightkeeper already have built in Analytics screens that you could potential build yourself with Composable.

Collaboration and Sharing

OpenText Analytics6.1
Based on 7 answers
Engineers can share and collaborate building tasks - e.g. One develope builds the report design while another builds the query. But I can't pass in a requirements template from a spreadsheet to construct the report. Collaboration is still strongly based on comminication between stakeholders and engineers rather than through automation

It works well. Some data source may need customization.

Return on Investment

  • Actuate can handle 50 to 60 sub reports inside a report very well.
  • Dynamically creating the datasource, chart, graph, reports are the main advantages. We can do any level of drilling, and can create a performance matrix dashboard efficiently.
