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.

Panorama Necto 14 is well suited where BI is built to support social collaboration so that its analytics features can be shared to improve decision making by incorporating various organizational input. Additionally it supports an infographic display for information review which is unlike most of its competitors.

  • Comes with lot of option to modify and build the smart infographic. Uses innovative pictures and charts to create the dashboards
  • Helps you identify why you are succeeding and where you should shift your focus to.
  • The maps are amazing and they just don’t act as control points rather you can populate various measures on them making it really efficient to understand the business in geographical info graph

Cons

OpenText Magellan Analytics Suite

  • The debug tool that came with the Actuate 8 developer was poorly written in my opinion; compiling a report could be very difficult when a number of functions were being called.
  • There wasn't any reporting that could be run to download Actuate utilization statistics. Analytics had to be done by manually reviewing who had been running reports.
  • At times when the Actuate Server would become overloaded the only solution was to restart it. There wasn't a way to clear up the list of pending report requests.

  • This tool is relatively new to the current competitive BI market. Many organizations or business analyst are not yet aware of it's eye catching features.
  • Need more enhancement for predictive analysis.
  • Publishing reports as email attachment and mail server configuration is a little complicated process.

Some features are very basic and sometimes you can't add your own SQL query for custom reports. For Macs and Blackberry users this application is not helpful. Non-languages are not supported in info-graphics. They need to improve their forecast analysis. Report sharing is limited among the portal users only

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Magellan Analytics Suite

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.

This is the next generation BI tool, which will be very helpful for small and medium businesses to kick start data exploration and visualization of their diverse databases, with less intervention from IT. This tool is more end user centric and gives way more power to the end user to perform data analysis

Return on Investment

OpenText Magellan Analytics Suite

  • 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.
