It depends on extensibility, set-up, access & style. Actuate performs fairly well, but has performance issues because it sits on top of eclipse, which sits on top of Java. Extensibility usually comes at that price. Set-up is fairly straightforward and it can be secured.

Panorama Necto

Panorama Necto 14 is well suited where BI is built to support social collaboration so that its analytics features can be shared to improve decision making by incorporating various organizational input. Additionally it supports an infographic display for information review which is unlike most of its competitors.

I am no longer working for the company that was using Actuate but I believe they would continue to use it because the stitching costs would be to high. It would require a complete rewrite of the reports and the never version of Actuate (BIRT) even required an almost complete report rewrite

Breadth of Deployment

We have about 2300 licensed users, but probably less than 1/3 actually log in during a quarter time. Less than 10% would be considered proficient users.

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

We compared Panorama Necto with another leading product. Necto's cost and visual appeal were certainly winners.

Basic scorecard without iServer and Birt360 modules are extremely limited in reporting ability. Scheduling pushed reports also fairly technical

It is simply matchless and excellent. Panorama Necto is a revolutionary collaborative BI tool.

Data Integration

Easy to set up data imports from a variety of sources and use scripts to automatically import data. Manual imports and translators also very easy to use

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.
