Highcharts

It is excellent when you are wanting to create clean, straight to the point, data visualizations. Pie charts, bar graphs, and the appropriate drill-downs are easy to develop and deploy. This helps a lot when needing to develop a data visualization solution for non-technical teams. However, the lack of customizability makes it difficult to create specialized visualizations.

Orbit Reporting and Analytics

It has been very useful in a wider variety of different scenarios within our organization, I could not be more pleased with my experience. It is appropriate for business decision makers who really need analytics to influence what they do day to day. I would say that ORBIT probably is not as useful for developers, but there are other software solutions out there that provide information that is more useful.
