Scorecard without the Birt360 module is very limited in reporting and data displays. End users who are not computer savvy would have a difficult time using the advanced features

Toad Data Point

I cannot say a bad thing about this product, it has been a lifesaver for our teams multiple times. Before this product we would have had to spend hours trying to consolidate all the datasets from various areas into one area (usually ended up being Access unfortunately). I wish we would have purchased this product much earlier.

  • I find the explain plans that can be generating difficult to use, and should provide better suggestions as to how to improve performance

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

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.

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.

I like Toad Data Point being more designed to work with non Oracle databases

We support an enterprise library of core components and deploy thousands of reports for varying business cases. We have integrated our network security into the product ensuring data does not get in the hands of those without access.

We usually use Toad data Point with an Oracle database. However, it gives us the flexibility to access other data sources as needed

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.
