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.

Pros

OpenText Analytics

  • In terms of extensibility this is the best reporting platform we have seen. You can build very sophisticated reports with different data sources, and extend the basic functionality with javscript code
  • Securing the BI system is also a strength and the system can be configured relatively easily.
  • Reports can be available on mobile devices
  • Good Javascript embedding framework does not require the site to be built in java

  • Simple to use and configure.
  • A good set of pre-built integrations to pull data back and summarise on a dashboard.
  • Excellent support! They actually respond when you ask them questions and are very thorough with their response.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • Limited report writing ability unless you implant the iServer applications
  • End users have little or no control over data displays

  • A bit more flexibility in the number of columns would be nice.
  • Ability to scale to mobile device (web).
  • App capabilities are missing on Android.

This rating would be a 10 if the licensing structure were more accommodating.

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.

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.
