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 well suited for sales reps and sales managers. I am not sure how else it can be utilized but maybe marketing could benefit as well so that they can get more insight into customer buying patterns.

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

I am not sure if my company grants their sales reps complete access to all of the benefits. I do not have the ability to download reports or share data with other colleagues.

I really only use Qlik on my laptop and have not tried it on my iPhone or Android devices. To be honest, I wouldn't want to use it on those devices. I like that I can access it on my laptop whenever I need to.

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.
