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

  • In terms of extensibility this is the best reporting platform we have seen. You can build very sophisticated reports with different data sources, and extend the basic functionality with javscript code
  • Securing the BI system is also a strength and the system can be configured relatively easily.
  • Reports can be available on mobile devices
  • Good Javascript embedding framework does not require the site to be built in java

  • The UX/UI of the platform is so simple and intuitive that we found the training on the platform to be almost redundant. It works how you expect it to when you expect it to.
  • It is adaptable. You need to share docs on one client across the entire team, done. Do you need folders for different phases of the project? No sweat. It is adaptable to pretty much all projects we have used it for.

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)

  • Android App always crash
  • A bit high in pricing
  • Only 5MB file upload limit in the free account
  • Only 1000 block storage

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

It is vastly superior to these in many ways, for complex reporting it is a much more sophisticated solution. Visualizations are very good. Javascript extensibility is very powerful, others don't support this or as well. Pentaho and MS are both OLAP oriented. Pentaho is moving more toward big data, which was not our primary focus. Others are stuck in the Crystal Reports Band metaphor.

Simply notion is better than Evernote. It sure is the app of the year material. I think it can be used for many purposes. Even Journaling. Can Notion replace Todoist? Now that notion has reminders but it can't compete with Todoist now. You can also share your reading lists with your friends with the help of Notion.

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.

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

Some folks were interested in learning more about how Notion keeps eating up more and more of Evernote's job. Yes, it can be the perfect alternative to the Evernote but still a lot of rooms to improve. I can use Notion to take notes, create to-do lists, etc. A very nice app, but potentially very dangerous for those who want to spend their time doing work that matters.

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.
