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 is perfectly suited for statistical analyses, but I would not recommend JMP for users who do not have a statistical background. As previously stated, the learning curve is exceptionally steep, and I think that it would prove to be too steep for those without statistical background/knowledge

Pros

OpenText Analytics

  • 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.

  • Save scripts directly to the data table so that the user can recreate the steps to create reports, charts, when the underlying data changes.
  • Multiple options for graphing and plotting and flexible configuration options.
  • Detailed instructions and explanations in the help document.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • 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)

  • My JMP use is "ALWAYS" closely tied with MS Excel because raw data manipulation within JMP is rather cumbersome and clunky. The freedom and flexibility that Excel offers allows me to organize the data easier then when I'm ready I export the data set to JMP for analysis. If I didn't have Excel to assist in building the data set, I don't know how long it would take me to become proficient in JMP. Were JMP to adopt the flexible features that Excel has for housing data and manipulating arrays, then I wouldn't even need to use Excel...the distinct advantage in my mind of JMP over Excel is its analytic and graphic features but JMP's limitation is its rigid requirements for data structure and the high hurdle for common Excel users to work with data in the bounds JMP requires.
  • I do many repetitive tasks in JMP, I wish the ability to build a script from my operations was easier and more intuitive. Many users are either unaware of the scripting capabilities or afraid to begin learning about the features because the learning curve is too steep. Some efforts to cater the power of scripting to the less astute audience will build more loyal followers and further widen the customer base.
  • As I reflected over the use of JMP from the past several years, I realized that JMP is usually a tool used in tandem with another. The more independent JMP can become to perform more tasks the less I rely on secondary software applications and ultimately the greater cost advantage for the organization because it could reduce licensing fees for software tools that support its operations. Typically I must query a database for the data, manipulate it with MS Excel, then export the queried information into JMP for analysis and display...this is 3 sets of software that I must navigate before I can actually make a decision on what the data is telling me. If JMP could query a database better, allow easier data manipulation then an organization would only need to purchase the JMP license as a complete solution to its organizational needs.

Once you figure out the bells and whistles/ins and outs of JMP, it becomes an intuitive, powerful tool. However, the learning curve is very steep; I think the product might be borderline unusable for those without at least a basic understanding of inferential statistics. However, even if you have a statistics background, the learning curve is still steep due to a confusing user interface, a weak help/search tool (at least within the program for Mac users; the online help is very useful), and a general lack of intuitiveness.

The SAS support team came on site to give a presentation to our entire team. They answer questions immediately and provide insight specific to your needs. They also provided a video conference to get me started with the software, which was really useful. There are textbooks written on scripting and JMP usage, which were provided to me as well.

Alternatives Considered

Actuate has been in the industry a while and the open source community make going with Actuate's BIRT a stable decision. Changing report engines can be expensive, so going with a company with a good reputation helps long-term
