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.

I like the fact that no matter where in the world a member of the ELT is traveling, as long as they have a signal they have access to my data. You'd be surprised at the different times of the day I receive emails from them about something they just saw on Klipfolio.

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.

Klipfolio

  • I can tailor results to different audiences via multiple dashboards.
  • I was able to quickly train the ELT members on how to use it. They even downloaded the app themselves. Really surprised me.

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)

Klipfolio

  • If you are an Excel guru then Klipfolio is easy, if not it is intimidating without some help.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Analytics

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

Klipfolio

They are all based on a similar methodology (Excel) but I felt Klipfolio had better integrations and their support team has been the difference maker. For a company that needs some hand-holding and guidance, Klipfolio is the right choice.

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.

  • It's still fairly new so it's hard to say.
