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 Cloud AI

Everyday work, e.g. e-mailing, research, connectivity during and in transit to meetings, is excellent for using the cloud AI tools and solutions. The more one uses it, the easier it becomes. Our organization is just scraping the surface of the AI tools, and we want to be full in. This will take change management on our side, and more immersion.

Pros

OpenText Analytics

  • The report outputs can vary across different types such as HTML, PDF, and Excel
  • Their open source offering is very sufficient
  • There are great boards and blogs for developers and engineers to expand and use their features.
  • The people from the company that I've worked with are professional and courteous.

Google Cloud AI

  • Smart reply and its AI suggestions make the organization think more carefully about their e-mail responses in Gmail. We were skeptical at first but it really works well for many instances.
  • We do a lot of business and contracts in Western Europe and South America, so the translate solutions make this much easier for our banking paperwork.
  • When we go to meetings or during a meeting, we often use the Google voice search to save time on research and filtering ideas or analysis.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • The report designer can be unstable at times.
  • The reporting engine tends to have memory leaks with certain types of massive-data reporting.
  • The report graphics don't have the sexiest appeal (e.g. Glossy feel, animated output)
  • Some extensibility is extremely difficult to get to without purchasing a license (e.g. Setting a simple flag so that HTML outputs in compressed mode requires either creating your own emitter or going the paid route)

Google Cloud AI

  • It is great that it helps shortcut and boost productivity, but AI is very much in infancy so it comes back with some crazy responses.
  • Not sure how secure the Google Cloud AI is with fraudsters and cybercriminals. Not that we have seen compromises, but building trust all of the time is crucial.
  • I always support the need for more training, procedures or on the spot tips for cloud applications. This would make it more seamless, especially since tech is changing so rapidly. It's hard to keep up, so we all need some help to make it 'smoother'.

Difficulty with some extensibility that should be fairly easy, lack of shading in the reports (even simple phong shading), lack of out-of-the box capabilities that seem like no brainers and instability with the design tools all drop the product a few marks, but the support community and the overall product experience is well above average. It's at least worth a try and its extensibility makes it a good contender

We are extremely satisfied with the impact that this tool has made on our organization since we have practically moved from crawling to walking in the process of generating information for our main task to investigate in the field through interviews. With the audio to text translation tool there is a difference from heaven to earth in the time of feeding our internal data.

So far we have not had any problems with the application, it is extremely easy to use and it is also easy to install. It does not require much training since the instruction is quite clear for its execution and application in the procedures of the company. The team in charge of this application is very pleased to work with this app.

By using this Google search tool, we solved a huge problem, which invested a lot of time in the task of translating the results of field investments. Our aim was in translating this information into reliable statistics for the development of our investments, and with this new market perspective, carry out our business vision

In fact, you only need the basic tech knowledge to do a Google search. You need to know if your organization requires it or not,. our organization required it. And that is why we acquired it and solved a need that we had been suffering from. This is part of the modernization of an organization and part of its growth as a company.

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.

Google's documentation for their AI and Machine Learning products is a bit more straightforward and still much easier to onboard into compared to the Azure Machine Learning and other AI products. Additionally, Google's Cloud AI products provide more comprehensive specific use-cases that are API-optimized, and easier to integrate into existing scripts and backends.

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.

Google Cloud AI

  • Artificial intelligence and automation seems 'free' and draws the organization in, without seeming to spend a lot of funds. A positive impact, but who is actually tracking the cost?
  • We want our employees to use it, but many resist technology or are scared of it, so we need a way to make them feel more comfortable with the AI.
  • The ROI seems positive since we are full in with Google, and the tools come along with the functionality.
