    Organizations which already implemented on-premise Hadoop based Cloudera Data Platform (CDH) for their Big Data warehouse architecture will definitely get more value from seamless integration of Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) with their existing CDH Platform. However, for organizations with hybrid (cloud and on-premise) data platform without prior implementation of CDH, implementing CDSW can be a challenge technically and financially.

    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

    Data Science Workbench

    • One single IDE (browser based application) that makes Scala, R, Python integrated under one tool
    • For larger organizations/teams, it lets you be self reliant
    • As it sits on your cluster, it has very easy access of all the data on the HDFS
    • Linking with Github is a very good way to keep the code versions intact
    Bharadwaj (Brad) Chivukula | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    Bri Gipson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Data Science Workbench

    • Installation is difficult.
    • Upgrades are difficult.
    • Licensing options are not flexible.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    • 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

    It is quite intuitive to use. It is fit specifically for doing sentiment, emotion, and intention analysis as well as text classification and text summarization. I would have given 10 if it is fit for the purpose of doing image processing and analysis as well. There is a huge market to analyze video and image data.

    Cloudera Data Science Workbench has excellence online resources support such as documentation and examples. On top of that the enterprise license also comes with SLA on opening a ticket to Cloudera Services and support for complaint handling and troubleshooting by email or through a phone call. On top of that it also offers additional paid training services.

    Alternatives Considered

    Data Science Workbench

    Both the tools have similar features and have made it pretty easy to install/deploy/use. Depending on your existing platform (Cloudera vs. Azure) you need to pick the Workbench. Another observation is that Cloudera has better support where you can get feedback on your questions pretty fast (unlike MS). As its a new product, I expect MS to be more efficient in handling customers questions.

    It is vastly superior to these in many ways, for complex reporting it is a much more sophisticated solution. Visualizations are very good. Javascript extensibility is very powerful, others don't support this or as well. Pentaho and MS are both OLAP oriented. Pentaho is moving more toward big data, which was not our primary focus. Others are stuck in the Crystal Reports Band metaphor.

    Return on Investment

    Data Science Workbench

    • Paid off for demonstration purposes.
    Anonymous | 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.
