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.

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is an excellent choice for self service data integration and self service BI and Analytics, capable of ingesting and processing large data sets. It has a flexible deployment architecture that should ease the infrastructure spend.Data Modeling that influences Memory management is the crux for this tool. Suitable training is necessary for optimal exploitation of the tool.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • Report rendering can take a long time for large reports (250,000+ pages) - we run these in batch over night
  • The deployment of production code from development to test to production enviroments can be complex due to the number of components that must compile

Qlik Sense

  • NO horizontal and/or vertical scrollbars. Period. Not implemented. This means very little data could be shown on a single sheet.
  • NO adjustment of the SIZE of the fonts and controls. Functionality never implemented in Qliksense (out of the box as of v. 3.1). This means very little data could be shown on a single sheet.
  • You can not rename a bookmark, you can not change the order of bookmarks. This is a functionality that the end user works directly..
  • Each and every control is "dumbed down" (vs the corresponding Qlikview implementation). This means that each anything is kept out of the product (to make product more maintainable and to provide rendering on mobile platforms). Example: List Box. You can not change the search mode (in qlikview you could make it a wild card search or expression driven search out of the box).
  • "Current Selections" control removed. This is the main control in qlikview, that shows the context of the filtering for the user.
  • The script is not 100% compatible vs. Qlikview. References to files, supported in Qlikview are different (have to be modified).
  • Qliksense App V.3.1 freezes, then crashes on me 2-3 times a day (Win.7, 64 bit, SSD drive). It does not instill confidence in the product. Qliksense cloud based (accessed via browser) never crashed on me.

There are some very complex performance reports, which can not be handled in other tools. If we want to create our own framework in any reporting tool then Actuate is the best choice

Not only can you ask the support team for help, but you can also ask the community. Also with the community there is a vast amount of problems that have already been solved. The problem you are encountering has a likely chance of already being discussed and even solved in the community section saving you time from reaching out.

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.

Qlik Sense

  • Qlik Sense fills the gap between Excel's ad-hoc reporting and the traditional Qlik View scheduled type reporting. We have considered Qlik Sense Enterprise but feel that the desktop edition is good enough for our needs.
