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.

Factiva

A large part of our work depends on the ability to source quality media content from a breadth of dependable sources globally. This is Factiva's bread and butter: it has a very comprehensive list of 'quality' media sources such as nationals, dailies, business journals and magazines from around the world that are easily mined for the content they hold. If you're thinking about anything other than these 'traditional' media sources then Factiva probably isn't your thing. It doesn't do social media.

Pros

OpenText Analytics

  • Easy data import
  • Multiple levels of user security

Factiva

  • Factiva offers excellent search builders so that I am able to narrow my search to specific companies or topics very easily.
  • Factiva combines a large number of credible sources into one place and allows me to search all of these sources.
  • Factiva's use of timestamps helps me understand when the news was known by the market which allows me to analyze how (if at all) that particular piece of news impacted the company's stock price.
  • Provides an excellent starting place for learning about a company and/or industry.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • 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.

  • While timestamps are available on some news events, it is not available on all. For my purposes, timestamps are crucial and if they're not available on Factiva, we often have to search out the internet to see if this information is available elsewhere.
  • Sometimes when narrowing news by the "Company" search function, Factiva can remove news that is still relevant to the company.
  • Often times we may work for an international company so it becomes crucial to not only review English articles, but also foreign articles as well. It would be nice to have the ability to automatically translate (even if it is a rough translation) these non-English articles for ease of use.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Analytics

I've used JReports and Actuate is very similar but seems to have a lot more customization features for the end user of BIRT reports.

Factiva

I have used Lexis Nexus and Thomson One. I find Factiva to be the most user friendly of these services. I much prefer Factiva's layout on their website when I search for articles and I also prefer its search builder over Lexis Nexus and Thomson One

Return on Investment

OpenText Analytics

  • 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.
