Scorecard without the Birt360 module is very limited in reporting and data displays. End users who are not computer savvy would have a difficult time using the advanced features

iCharts for NetSuite

At this time, iCharts is not well suited for anything as they seem to be closed. I am not sure if this is permanent as there is no one to ask. If they were to re-open I would be hesitant as they had no trouble closing without notifying customers.

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

Breadth of Deployment

Actuate is used in 3-4 product lines. We have about 30 developers company wide that develop reports and perhaps 100 testers and business analysts that use it. Then we resell it with our product which is used by thousands of end users.

Alternatives Considered

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.

We have only just started looking at other options, NetSuite is the one who recommended ICharts and for what they were offering we felt they would be a good fit for us.

Collaboration and Sharing

As a developer, the report code itself cannot be diffed and the merged from one version of a report to another. If you have 2 developers working on the same report, the last developer's changes have to be manually implemented into the first developer's version of the report. You cannot use a tool such as WinMerge to merge differences from one report design into another. Or rather, you could but there's no guaruntee that it would work. This is a real bottleneck. You have to implement changes in the design tool

Some of the sharing is role based in NetSuite so sometimes it takes some digging to find out why certain charts can't be shared and others share easily

They support plenty of major databases and we can connect to several different data sources.

Unless you are a power user of NetSuite where you can whip up searches with ease, this could be a difficult task

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.
