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.

If your organization is already using SAP products or some back end function related to SAP, then integration of the Cloud tool is easy and a great choice as it proves functional to an always changing market with multiple teams/groups touching the software at a given time. I would say if your organization does not currently utilize SAP at all or is not changing often, there is a steep learning curve to this tool and might not be picked up quickly by your organization unless you have a designated individual.

  • In a short time, you can get applications that allow you to expand business performance without investing in infrastructure. It adapts very well to mobile devices.
  • The tool has great features like the planning menu and the easy to use interface. It's a complete tool for Business Intelligence and analytics with beautiful views and charts.
  • Drag and Drop feature, All Inbuilt Algorithms, easy to use ESRI and hence the geo-coordinates.
  • Ease of building a story or a data model.
  • It's based on a Cloud deployment; it allows real-time analytics and ad-hoc queries.

Cons

  • 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

  • There are way too many scroll bars on some screens
  • Have better tutorials, training and consulting

Alternatives Considered

We looked at a few other competitor's products but based on value for features chose Actuate for its total cost of ownership.

Microsoft Power BI is new to our organization, yet it appears to have similar graphic reporting features. SAP Cloud Analytics does have a very fast response time, yet the user interface is something to get used 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.

  • Reduced employee support - SAP Analytics has allowed our IT staff to focus efforts on other systems that require on-premises support.
  • Performance is increased and enhanced with SAP Analytics. Quick and fast response time.
