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.

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

Pros

  • Easy data import
  • Multiple levels of user security
Lynn Kutz profile photo
  • Dashboards can be created easily with basic programming skills. A typical business analyst will not require a developer once the underlying data model is in place.
  • Qlikview can be used as a web based application allowing users to access dashboards anywhere permissions allow.
  • Qlikview provides a variety of pre-built objects that gives designers flexibility to represent data in multiple ways.

Cons

  • Limited report writing ability unless you implant the iServer applications
  • End users have little or no control over data displays
Lynn Kutz profile photo
  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

Once the data is loaded (which can range from simple to complex depending on the data set), it is relatively easy to create new charts/dashboards

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.

Training was as expected. The demo environments tend to be more fully featured that our own environment, but the training was clear and well delivered.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Breadth of Deployment

Adopted by infrastructure, ad-operations, sales, business, and account support. We are a small company and maintain a small number of accounts on this system. If pricing would be acceptable, we would roll this out to all of our customers.

Not applicable to our firm as we are small consulting firm.

Alternatives Considered

I've used JReports and Actuate is very similar but seems to have a lot more customization features for the end user of BIRT reports.
Amy Broome profile photo
Power BI is cheaper, but more basic. Tableau is more expensive, but with greater capabilities. I feel like the other two are a little more intuitive. My company had Qlikview when I arrived.

Collaboration and Sharing

As a developer, the report code itself cannot be diffed and the merged from one version of a report to another. If you have 2 developers working on the same report, the last developer's changes have to be manually implemented into the first developer's version of the report. You cannot use a tool such as WinMerge to merge differences from one report design into another. Or rather, you could but there's no guaruntee that it would work. This is a real bottleneck. You have to implement changes in the design tool

There really are no sharing or report distribution capabilities beyond cloning reports and sharing them. But multiple users cannot work on the same report. I believe that QlikView has purchased NPrinting which will give it report distribution capabilities.

The ease of extraction and manipulation from various sources is simple and very effective. The ability of QlikView to load data from any number of sources and merge it is one of the major strengths.

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.

  • If anything, we've had a very positive ROI. It saved us months of work had we used some other tool.
