If you do not have a large budget and are a large organization, I would steer clear of Actuate. If you are looking to do very complex washboarding, I would not use them. Your developers have to be very skilled to work with this. Plan to bring in consultants if necessary to help your process. Adhoc reporting is weak. If your pricing is user based and you expand, this could be very expensive.

I think it is an excellent product especially if you want to have a tool that can fully meet the visual needs in terms of space and allocation of various objects in the dashboard. I often found it difficult to satisfy the customer where to place alerts, KPIs, and charts. Dundas succeeds in satisfying this need.

Pros

  • The performance of Actuate IServer is tremendous. It can handle a large volume of reports with many concurrent users.
  • We can do anything in Actuate. We can write our own function, procedures, methods in Actuate. Basically we can create our own framework in Actuate. No other reporting tool is proving this functionality.
  • It supports the OLTP system very well. The data can be flowed easily from one report to another report, by using array.
  • Control level formatting is available.

  • Simple installation and configuration
  • Excellent arrangement of the elements almost "pixel perfect"
  • Detailed tools that provide maximum freedom of development, it's very close to the conception of a report but being a dashboard

  • There can be more graph types.

  • Also evaluating the competitors, I think the interface is not very attractive
  • Initially, it is a bit difficult to use and especially to understand the full functionality
  • It requires a little time of use before being a complete master of the instrument

There are some very complex performance reports, which can not be handled in other tools. If we want to create our own framework in any reporting tool then Actuate is the best choice

Breadth of Deployment

We have about 2300 licensed users, but probably less than 1/3 actually log in during a quarter time. Less than 10% would be considered proficient users.

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.

Personally as a dashboard software I use Qlik Sense more because I consider it a very simple product to use, but this is a personal choice. However, for some things, it does not satisfy me fully. In my opinion, they are software that are alternated depending on the customer in front of you.

We support an enterprise library of core components and deploy thousands of reports for varying business cases. We have integrated our network security into the product ensuring data does not get in the hands of those without access.

As for my experience with Dundas Bi, unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to personally test this type of functionality, as I have always been busy developing single and individual dashboards. The release and interaction part of the user has always been independently managed to follow the release date.

It can connect to almost anything - solely based on what JDBC connectors are out there

As for the connectivity through data sources I have not encountered any kind of problems. Also I never had to implement mupltiple connectivity solutions so most of the time the data sources were single on single server, nothing to report then. However, all standard connections are available and can be used easily

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.
