What is the licensing structure? How long does it take to get licenses? Can an OEM reseller of Actuate get one license for the entire development organization?

In-depth look at pipelines and deal trends are where this tool shines for our team. We can very easily understand how are efforts are affecting our pipeline. Because of its customization abilities, I don't know that there are too many scenarios that it wouldn't be of great benefit to an organization.

  • Their momentum report is one of my favorite reports. It gives an objective look at which deals have had a lot of activity on them recently and provides a good focus.
  • Detailing what each report means, very helpful.
  • Great interface and easy navigation.

Cons

  • Licensing is a bear.
Amy Broome profile photo
  • Additional integrations could be very useful, including a unique integration specifically with our own database would be incredible.
  • The UI could be improved to make certain aspects of the product more user-friendly, especially for team members who may not be data minded.

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.

It's an intuitive tool that is visually oriented. It also caters more to marketers than other product offerings. Overall, it's a great tool for Salesforce users. My only recommendation is to make sure that your Salesforce processes are clear and adopted across your entire team.

Collaboration and Sharing

Having more that one developer working on Actuate reports became quite a problem because once a report was compiled it was published to the server. The published file then could not be decompiled and the design files had to be stored in a particular shared location on the server. Also, I experienced issues leaving code notes in the SQL statements of the reports when I tried to compile them

The Dashboard is easy to read and share. Individual login is easy to use. Sending notes inside the system is convenient.

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.
