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.

Easy to create visualizations and projects that shows the trends in company. Data Visualization allows data to be uploaded from multiple sources. We can create insights and stories which can be shared with other uses for analysis.

Cons

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

  • We are still in the process of leveraging all the functions/features available with DV, we don't see any issues with our current development.

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

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.

We are using Essbase Cloud as one of the data sources for the Data Visualization Cloud. Once we had Data Visualization, we don't require any other plugin or tool to connect to the data sources. Connectivity between sources is flawless and we never saw any interruption in connectivity. We are exploring other options in DV with other sources as well.

Return on Investment

OpenText Magellan

  • 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.

Oracle Data Visualization Cloud

  • End user reporting made powerful and easy to understand the reports/dashboards.
  • We don't see any negative impact.
