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.

It's so open that it's good for anything, honestly. Because it's so flexible, you can use it for task management of varying complexities. Less appropriate if you need visual design control over your notes, and collaboration is really only possible with someone who also has a paid account, keeping it relatively closed off.

Pros

  • The report outputs can vary across different types such as HTML, PDF, and Excel
  • Their open source offering is very sufficient
  • There are great boards and blogs for developers and engineers to expand and use their features.
  • The people from the company that I've worked with are professional and courteous.

  • Robust: Notion is so nicely made and really robust to use
  • Databases: I love how Notion handles simple databases, allowing tons of flexibility of viewing and sorting
  • Mobile: The mobile app is really nice

Cons

  • The report designer can be unstable at times.
  • The reporting engine tends to have memory leaks with certain types of massive-data reporting.
  • The report graphics don't have the sexiest appeal (e.g. Glossy feel, animated output)
  • Some extensibility is extremely difficult to get to without purchasing a license (e.g. Setting a simple flag so that HTML outputs in compressed mode requires either creating your own emitter or going the paid route)

  • More embeddable media types
  • Needs a refresh every morning

Difficulty with some extensibility that should be fairly easy, lack of shading in the reports (even simple phong shading), lack of out-of-the box capabilities that seem like no brainers and instability with the design tools all drop the product a few marks, but the support community and the overall product experience is well above average. It's at least worth a try and its extensibility makes it a good contender

Breadth of Deployment

The design tool is useful for basic reporting, but many reports require some experience in SQL and JavaScript. Java programming, though not a required skill for basic reports, is needed for better reporting and to access the more advanced features (such as debugging).

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.

Notion is so much nicer than Evernote or Trello, as it feels a lot more robust than Evernote and allows for a lot more features than Trello.

Collaboration and Sharing

OpenText Analytics6.1
Based on 7 answers
Engineers can share and collaborate building tasks - e.g. One develope builds the report design while another builds the query. But I can't pass in a requirements template from a spreadsheet to construct the report. Collaboration is still strongly based on comminication between stakeholders and engineers rather than through automation

Really nice and simple. It's easy to add users to your workspace, and you can even make groups which is really handy. You can then control the permissions on a per-page basis, either to be available publicly, with individual people or groups across your workspace. There is commenting, as well as collaborative editing on a document.

Data Integration

It can connect to almost anything - solely based on what JDBC connectors are out there

It connects pretty flawlessly with most of the integrations that we have. While online, merging data from different sources happens in real time. The offline mode is slower and not fully functional, of course, changes do not happen in real time while offline as well. We have not had any problems that have hindered work done to data source connectivity.

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.
