What is the licensing structure? How long does it take to get licenses? Can an OEM reseller of Actuate get one license for the entire development organization?

Dundas BI

For all the scenarios I have so far worked on or I am currently working on, Dundas BI has proved to be more than adequate and apt to handle all of those.

Pros

  • We integrate page level security allowing a single report to service audiences of 20,000+ consumers but only deliveing the data in the vast data set applicable to the consumer.
  • Publish common components allowing the development staff to deliver consistent look and feel based on the standard firm style guide.
  • Reusable library objects allow for fast deployment of new application reports.

  • Their biggest strength is their customer support. I have not seen any other product company being so supportive and helpful for any issues being faced by the customers.
  • Dundas BI has a very intuitive and easy to learn UI. This enables a quick pickup.
  • They are very quick on updates and keep on adding newer features with frequent version upgrades.

Cons

  • Anything that I would consider an area for improvement and have asked about from the company is a area where they are already doing development and refinement and when it is available it comes as a simple upgrade.

  • Not too many cons for how we use the application. It really is easy and powerful. Very powerful.
  • Licensing is one thing that could be looked into. It is simple, but a little confusing. For example, if I get a license today, but a new release comes out tomorrow, it seems that the license doesn't work with the new release. Maybe that is by design, but it would be nice to clearly understand.

We have invested much into the software and hardware that supports our reporting platform - Actuate is a staple in our environment.

I work with many vendors and software companies. I am always delighted to call Dundas, get a live person (that I can understand), and typically get resolution on the first call. The few times that support isn't able to resolve my issue on their own, they have always put me in touch with the correct account representative or corporate resource to help me work through the issue holding me up. I truly enjoy working with this company.

Alternatives Considered

It is vastly superior to these in many ways, for complex reporting it is a much more sophisticated solution. Visualizations are very good. Javascript extensibility is very powerful, others don't support this or as well. Pentaho and MS are both OLAP oriented. Pentaho is moving more toward big data, which was not our primary focus. Others are stuck in the Crystal Reports Band metaphor.

Dundas BI provided all of the connectivity, flexibility, and visualizations we needed - all at the right price. We compared total cost of ownership over 5-years, and Dundas was the clear winner. In our experience, they also had the strongest sales support staff. After using Dundas products for over two years now, I have to say their post-sales support is second to none

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.
