Amazon SageMaker

Amazon SageMaker is a great tool for developing machine learning models that take more effort than just point-and-click type of analyses. The software works well with the other tools in the Amazon ecosystem, so if you use Amazon Web Services or are thinking about it, SageMaker would be a great addition. SageMaker is great for consumer insights, predictive analytics, and looking for gems of insight in the massive amounts of data we create. SageMaker is less suitable for analysts who do generally "small" data analyses, and "small" data analyses in today's world can be billions of records.

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.

Pros

Amazon SageMaker

  • Provides enough freedom for experienced data scientists and also for those who just need things done without going much deeper into building models.
  • Customization and easy to alter and change.
  • If you already are an Amazon user, you do not need to transition over to another software.

OpenText Magellan

  • The report outputs can vary across different types such as HTML, PDF, and Excel
  • Their open source offering is very sufficient
  • There are great boards and blogs for developers and engineers to expand and use their features.
  • The people from the company that I've worked with are professional and courteous.

Cons

Amazon SageMaker

  • It's very good for the hardcore programmer, but a little bit complex for a data scientist or new hire who does not have a strong programming background.
  • Most of the popular library and ML frameworks are there, but we still have to depend on them for new releases.

OpenText Magellan

  • The documentation on all the available features, but most importantly on the scripting side, can be improved
  • The standard look & feel of some basic options, like parameter selection or sorting and filtering, looks dated and can't be customized
  • The server portal needs to provide better tools
  • More integration is needed with other OpenText products

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

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SageMaker

Amazon SageMaker took the heavy lifting out of building and creating models. It allowed for our organization to use our current system for integration and essentially added on a feature to help all levels of Data scientists and IT professionals in our department and company as a whole. The training was simple as well.

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.

Return on Investment

Amazon SageMaker

  • We have been able to deliver data products more rapidly because we spend less time building data pipelines and model servers.
  • We can prototype more rapidly because it is easy to configure notebooks to access AWS resources.
  • For our use-cases, serving models is less expensive with SageMaker than bespoke servers.
Gavin Hackeling | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText Magellan

  • 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.
