Datadeck

DataDeck is an excellent solution for those who need to analyze Google Analytics daily. You can have an exclusive deck for an exclusive GAt account and select the reports and instances needed. No need to go deep into the GA menus anymore. Just pick the info you need and that specify data will be easily available. We feel that sharing the dashboard with our clients does not work well once, sometimes, have difficulties to understand the dashboard and data.

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

Datadeck

  • We think the DataDeck dashboard can be a little easier to organize
  • For first time users, they can get lost with all the functionality DataDeck offers

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

Datadeck

DataDeck definitely makes the reading and analyzing data easier than accessing the GA dashboard.

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.
