Suitability depends on your business model.

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 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.

Cons

Magnitude Software, Inc.

  • Multiple rows, linked by pointers that makes data difficult to read. Could be structured in columns in a table.
  • Kalido indicated in its survey response that it does not formally employ a standard configuration for its workstation builds, and/or it does not periodically review systems for deviations from the standard configuration. The Kalido DSP Manual indicates that Kalido does use a system security agent to maintain patches and anti-malware defense.

OpenText

  • 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.

      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.
