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.

If you are looking for an alternative to Evernote or Google Docs, Notion would be the best choice for you. You can Keep records of everything and Capture your unique workflows easily. One of the highlights is that it supports both Kanban board, Calendar view and even list view. Note that free account is limited 5MB file in size.

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

Cons

  • We have found a ton of bugs in there, our implementation is very complex and we use a lot of features, but we wish there were less bugs. Particularly with parameter display and validation.
  • Actuate has decided not to continue to support the birtondemand platform and it is running on older versions of their main platform.
  • Building out security extensibility is rather complex.
  • They have not had a rest interface until new versions of iHub.

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

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

Actuate has a HUGE number of features that can tie nicely into almost any ERP but it takes some time to learn and the development community was relatively small compared to the Crystal Reports alternative. Crystal was far easier to learn and had a massive support base. Probably because it is now owned by SAP.

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

Recently, Notion 2.2 released with new inline comments, security toggles, captions for embed and image blocks, and a few other things. Yes, it now has the ability to easily share data across teams but you should opt for Notio Pro to get most of that.

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.
