They need to better identify what their product excels at. I'm continually trying to think of new ideas to run through Composable Analytics. They need to better Identify what this product shines at and market themselves to that subset of an industry

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.

Cons

Composable Enterprise

  • I can not really comment because I do not have a complete fluency with the product as of now.
  • Recreating the wheel on some uses but i guess that may be user error.

  • 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

Composable Enterprise

I would compare them to custom system like Morgan Stanley has that I use. A more appropriate company is Novus or LightKeeper. This product is potentially much cheaper but Novus and Lightkeeper already have built in Analytics screens that you could potential build yourself with Composable.

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.

  • 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.
