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.

Google Charts

Google Charts can fit in your company if you're seeking a resource that can be managed, customized and also deployed all over the web, mobile apps or just add as an embedded object within your website or intranet resources. Can do awesome things for Finance entrepreneurs who wanted to take out the most from reports, dashboards with statistical analysis with a wide data source. For those who don't like web coding, or just get upset by handling crossing information from sheets to databases, this won't be the tool that fits with the business readiness that you might seek with IT developers that can understand the requirements wanted to be shown by Google Chart.

Pros

  • 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

  • Variety of Charts templates
  • Allows me to make design changes from the very root code to the string of data source
  • Allows working with dashboards with multiple charts within it.

Cons

  • We have found a ton of bugs in there, our implementation is very complex and we use a lot of features, but we wish there were less bugs. Particularly with parameter display and validation.
  • Actuate has decided not to continue to support the birtondemand platform and it is running on older versions of their main platform.
  • Building out security extensibility is rather complex.
  • They have not had a rest interface until new versions of iHub.

  • Accepting different programs' languages would allow for easier use.
  • There's no way to perform high statistical calculations

Pricing for BIRT onDemand is going up 10x and sales can't negotiate. They are not supporting this platform. For us, a smaller company using iHub is going to be too expensive. We can't continue to use this solution.

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.

Google Charts is a free version compared to Tableau. This was the biggest selling point, as the cost-per-user for Tableau cannot be justified since the program does not offer much more power compared to Google Charts.

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.

  • Not having to develop our own in-house library.
  • Fast installation and implementation on existing websites.
