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.

TARGIT

Targit is great when you have limited analysis resources but a high demand for analysis. Every report that's built can be customized with nearly every field in your database as a filter, allowing a wide range of end users to derive value from the data. Targit is especially great if you already have some in-house SSIS and SSAS expertise since that's what the platform is built on.

TARGIT

  • Targit reports are incredibly easy to use. The software is instantly impressive to everyone who sees it, which helps with the buy-in.
  • Our Targit developer knew parts of our NAV database better than we did, and we've been working with it for 10 years.
  • User management is incredibly fast and easy. The controls that you can apply are vast, yet easy to understand and implement.
  • The ability to do batch and scheduled reports is phenomenal.

Cons

OpenText Analytics

  • 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

  • We look forward to the opportunity to be able to take advantage of Data Discovery for Ad-Hoc scenarios. This is something that didn't necessary work as expected from Day 1 but TARGIT has enhanced the functionality moving forward and [we] look forward to testing and implementing it.
  • We should have looked at TARGIT sooner!

The use of Targit is widespread throughout our organization. Our users are becoming comfortable with the tool and Targit has allowed our company to truly grasp the concept of Business Intelligence and making better business decisions through the analysis of our data. Our users are not waiting for IT to create reports for them, they have full rich self-service BI with Targit and are able to turn a great analytical idea or ad-hoc query hypothesis into concrete answers with actionable responses within minutes.

Everything on the back end needs to be correct, which sometimes it may not be set up or missing some variables. Some of the more difficult parts of Targit require a lot more attention and object creation to work properly

Make sure all of the back end work is done prior to getting Targit set up. Every variable you may need for calculations needs to be correct and every item needs to be uniform so it is read properly.

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

I have not used any other products. I used to use Jet in Excel to run reports - which took much longer.

Return on Investment

OpenText Analytics

  • 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.
