The integration with JIRA is quite a handy tool to have. It allows for team progress to be easily tracked and visualized using the software while key metrics are brought to the forefront through the software's business intelligence. It makes presenting data and milestones achieved to non-technical management quite simple and can be extremely useful.

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.

  • 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.

Jama Analyze, as well as Asana, connect with JIRA to visualize milestone tracking and team progress. While Asana is cheaper, Jama Analyze provides better reports and visual data. Google Data Studio, through a bit of tinkering from your software development team, can achieve similar results, however, the charts and graphs leave a bit to be desired in terms of design. In all, Jama Analyze is great if you have few users and don't need to go for the licensing option. Otherwise, there are definitely cheaper options available but you may have to sacrifice on performance and look-and-feel.

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.

  • 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.
