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.

QlikView

It is a great tool if you are looking for a very powerful BI product with a lot of options. It is not good for those looking for a simple BI tool who have a short ramp-up time. It is not as intuitive to use as other products (like Tableau) but it is absolutely fantastic if you want to do more than the basics

Pros

  • Easy data import
  • Multiple levels of user security
Lynn Kutz profile photo
  • QlikView does an excellent job of evolving with an organization as it can move faster than an organization thinks. As clients work with their data, their business understanding grows.
  • QlikView ETL capability can be used to create a rapid-prototyping space to lower the risk associated with making changes to an ETL process by using it's native QVD file format as a temporary substitute for virtual data warhouse tables. When these stabilize, the client can integrate them into the ETL process without unnecessary time pressure.
  • Application development is highly flexible. This pairs well with an agile methodology allowing for requirements to necessarily flex as the client evolves. If done well, it generates high user acceptability levels.
  • QlikView provides excellent time to value in that dashboards can be created and deployed quickly. The product has a fully functional scripting language to support all ETL functionality in addition to a fully flexible interface design capability. The ETL piece can be used to quickly bridge gaps in the data.
  • Ideal state processes can be created by deploying mulitple QlikView files to work together.
  • Architecture is highly flexible allowing architects to design in constraints at appropriate points to control scope creep.

Cons

  • The debug tool that came with the Actuate 8 developer was poorly written in my opinion; compiling a report could be very difficult when a number of functions were being called.
  • There wasn't any reporting that could be run to download Actuate utilization statistics. Analytics had to be done by manually reviewing who had been running reports.
  • At times when the Actuate Server would become overloaded the only solution was to restart it. There wasn't a way to clear up the list of pending report requests.

  • Exporting can be cumbersome.
  • Clunky, non-intuitive UI.
  • Steep learning curve.

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

We chose Tableau over QlikView. If Tableau did not exist we would use QlikView, but in a fast paced environment, our clients can respond most effectively if we stick to one tool. As great as QV is, we think Tableau is even faster with their drag and drop interface. Also, right click solves most problems in Tableau, which isn't as straightforward as QV.

My team attended, but I cannot myself rate, but I think it was good as they've successfully launched a training program at our company themselves for users. It was 3-4 day training.

Breadth of Deployment

Actuate was used by the indirect procurement team and the maintenance departments company wide across many facilities. Well over 100 concurrent users at anytime. Actuate was used across vast majority of locations with the ERP solution we had at the time.
Todd Bellamy profile photo
QlikView is used by around 150 users across the university with half of them coming from the medical center. All other departments are using QlikView for one dashboard or another.

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.

It is easy enough to either share your screen to go over certain data with another team member. It's also easy to email the file to someone or export as multiple views. I like to export as a csv file and then format it to the key data we need for that campaign and then send over that data to a larger team and management to discuss

I connected QlikView with several data sources: SQL Server, Oracle, SQL Server Express, Excel file, Access File, text files, Sharepoint Lists and QVD files. Never faced a problem with any of them.

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.

  • Overall QlikView had a positive impact
