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.

Highcharts

Highcharts is well suited for standard graphs and charts in which you want to quickly visualize your data. It is also well suited for simple or light streaming of live data. It is a little less suited when you need to do advanced visualizations (transition graphics or animations) or have large amounts of data that need be visualized.

Highcharts

  • While customization of colors and basic width/height of elements in simple, going beyond that becomes difficult.

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

We looked at a few other competitor's products but based on value for features chose Actuate for its total cost of ownership.

Highcharts

D3 is a far more customizable framework which we've used on more data intensive type projects. In particular, we created advanced visual transitions of our data using D3. In cases where we don't need this level of detail, we use Highcharts instead. D3 does not provide a wide range of "out of the box" configurations like Highcharts does.

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.
