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

Izenda

White labeling/OEM scenarios are where Izenda shines. It's a nice solution and they have a good handle on the pricing. The system is customizable enough to do everything that's needed. We view it like unfinished furniture where we have to put the finishing touches on the system in order to make it work for our use case. Where it falls a bit is in usability. There are some rough edges which have to be coded around.

Pros

  • End user ability to customize Business Intelligence Reporting Tools (BIRT)
  • Actuate Support is usually prompt and helpful.
  • Ability to embed in other applications, has extendable code for authenticating/authorizing users.

  • User and tenant management is excellent. It is very simple to implement and easy to manage.
  • The configurability and customizability are excellent. We have access to all aspects of the system and have rebranded and configured single sign on. The users really like it.
  • Reports and visualizations work. There's lots of flexibility and users enjoy creating reports themselves.

Cons

  • We have found a ton of bugs in there, our implementation is very complex and we use a lot of features, but we wish there were less bugs. Particularly with parameter display and validation.
  • Actuate has decided not to continue to support the birtondemand platform and it is running on older versions of their main platform.
  • Building out security extensibility is rather complex.
  • They have not had a rest interface until new versions of iHub.

  • They are in rapid development mode and some of the releases have had QA problems. The offering is quite young so this is expected.
  • There are several usability issues like sorting and other basic items which others have solved. This is an area of improvement when compared to other, more refined BI tools. We communicate in grids and the grid controls need some work.
  • Support responsiveness is as advertised but a bit slow when compared to other vendors we work with. In other words, they say they'll get back to us in 48 hours and they do what they say but we'd appreciate faster responses.

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

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

We compared to other end user tools like Qlik, Tableau and Power BI. These tools are very refined but not positioned for OEM/Embedded use cases. The closest we came was logi and Birst and the price and business model of Izenda was much more appealing

Collaboration and Sharing

We support an enterprise library of core components and deploy thousands of reports for varying business cases. We have integrated our network security into the product ensuring data does not get in the hands of those without access.

Easy to share and collaborate with emails. Dashboard presentation is also quite nice. Limited capabilities beyond that

Data Integration

OpenText Analytics7.7
Based on 7 answers
You can include a large variety of data sources, any major rdbms, big data sources, nosql stores. A developer could write a driver for many other systems, though they have wide support. They have support for a number of sources such as salesforce.com, other web based sources can be included using scripting.

Overwhelmingly SQL with recent addition of Redshift. Multiple sources can be merged but it's better done elsewhere for speed

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.
