It depends on extensibility, set-up, access & style. Actuate performs fairly well, but has performance issues because it sits on top of eclipse, which sits on top of Java. Extensibility usually comes at that price. Set-up is fairly straightforward and it can be secured.

Grow.com

Grow is very well suited for data visualization and dashboards. It is very slick looking—we keep our common sales and marketing KPIs on an array of TVs, and it's pretty. I like how they call and receive data, keeps everything really up to date. If more statistics or in-depth analysis is needed, Grow really isn't the right tool. If you want to display KPI data simply and beautifully, it's a perfect tool.

Cons

  • There can be more graph types.

  • When data integrations perform poorly (e.g. not Grow's fault) it is hard to tell from the UI what operation I am waiting on and what the progress is. Furthermore, there is no way to manually cache/expire a big data pull that could be queried repeatedly after the fact while developing a metric. This can make developing new metrics against slower integrations somewhat frustrating.

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

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.

I initially selected Grow because it was integrated with our CRM (ProsperWorks) and allowed me to use SQL to query that data. I've stuck with it because it supports many of the other data sources we are interested in pulling data from and gives us a lot of flexibility in doing so.

The permission settings are great. Super intuitive and exactly aligned with what permissions we would want to offer to different stakeholders in our company and outside our company

Grow integrates with all of the tools we use and makes it really easy to connect [so that we] can get to work. That's all we need, easy way to get set up and going.

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.
