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.

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.

  • 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

OpenText Analytics

  • The debug tool that came with the Actuate 8 developer was poorly written in my opinion; compiling a report could be very difficult when a number of functions were being called.
  • There wasn't any reporting that could be run to download Actuate utilization statistics. Analytics had to be done by manually reviewing who had been running reports.
  • At times when the Actuate Server would become overloaded the only solution was to restart it. There wasn't a way to clear up the list of pending report requests.

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Analytics

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

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.
