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.

Talend Data Integration

If your organisation or department works regularly with ETL jobs or sources data from multiple locations and needs to integrate them to provide for better data compatibility, then Talend Data Integration is a great tool and I would strongly recommend it. This mostly applies to established corporations, and not startups as the licensing fee is quite high.

Cons

  • The report designer can be unstable at times.
  • The reporting engine tends to have memory leaks with certain types of massive-data reporting.
  • The report graphics don't have the sexiest appeal (e.g. Glossy feel, animated output)
  • Some extensibility is extremely difficult to get to without purchasing a license (e.g. Setting a simple flag so that HTML outputs in compressed mode requires either creating your own emitter or going the paid route)

  • Can face issues with certain big data spaces

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

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

There are code building and code conversions internally in most of these ETL tools. The repository is an overhead in the ETL process. There may be a need for a full-time administrator to manage deployments and monitor jobs. With Talend, it seems to be transparent with the pure JAVA/PERL code. You have the ability to easily customize your code. It has support for big data integration. The data quality/ MDM tools can be easily integrated with Talend ETL.The license cost is low compared to other ETL tools. With the new version of talend cloud-based hosted deployment is also available. An overall full featured open source version of Talend studio is available that can be used at zero cost with some amount of scripting to automate tasks.I was able to replace SSIS with a zero cost Talend open studio deployment with shell scripting and CRON scheduling.

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.

  • Easy to build complex data transformations.
  • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
  • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
