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.

OAC doesn't require software to be installed since it is browser based. This allows for easier deployment since a local client software is not required to be installed for each user. OAC can be used for the casual light user who mainly consumes data to the power user who can created sophisticated dashboard with advanced analytics. OAC is not meant to replace Essbase reporting.

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
Martin Rubens | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Machine Learning

  • Performance can suffer if you input vast amounts of data all at once.
  • One your initial contract term expires Oracle will hike up your rates and after going back and forth (time-consuming) you get to a reasonable rate.
  • Like others have stated the formatting can become an issue.

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.

Sorry this product was not selected by me, but was a legacy install that was upgraded. I see the value in the product, however, I was not involved in the selection process.

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 Machine Learning

  • THE ROI has been great for us since we have been able to up-sell additional services to our customer base.
  • We have been able to provide our customer's clear and precise reporting of their raw data.
  • We also have been able to reduce DevOps time by having an out of box solution which enables them to focus on other projects.
