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.

Any scenario where you need to reach back into TIBCO support is something I would highly avoid. Most responses at the second round get you pointed to engaging their professional services. The general mentality seems to be "since our product acquisition cost is low, why don't you engage PS to get the value you need" If you are looking at enterprise scenarios, I would highly recommend looking at other more established products.

Pros

OpenText Magellan

  • 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.
Bri Gipson | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Very intuitive tool - An Advanced reporting user can figure out in a day on the end to end operations.
  • Easy customization - Simple changes in UI makes it less headache for the end user who maintains the tool. Being an open source product (offers Jasper web services) makes a lot developer friendly compared to SSRS, Cognos etc.
  • Easy Connectivity - Can connect to any data source (can connect to multiple data sources) for a single report - can be customized.
  • Community - A very strong community available online, videos - on basic how to questions, also provides assistance to use case specific scenarios.
  • Ease of Reporting - Can create a reports with in few clicks with out struggle.
  • Domain Designer - A very powerful tool you can create a dataset using clicks with out writing SQL code.
  • OnDemand Scheduling - A very good scheduling feature and a has got lot more simplistic compared to other popular tools like Cognos.
  • Jasper Studio - Very good programmatic tool (desktop tool) lets you customize the reports more company specific, can embed complex coding with 3rd party languages like Java, Groovy (scripting language).

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

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Easier to customize the Jasper Server GUI. More flexibility with the input controls look and feel and maybe more input control types to select from.
  • Have browser event functionality in the reporting itself.
  • An easier way to iterate through an object. Maybe an option that tells the report Java run-time to stop following the report sequential flow and first integrate through this stated object many times.
  • An easier way to create a list and add values to this list.
  • Maybe one could stipulate the process flow of what needs to be computed first in a given field.
  • The crosstab is a bit buggy on the Jasper studio side, so if that could be improved.
  • Better and more examples of custom components
  • The jive functionality on the tables needs an update. It looks so old and outdated.

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

Even though there are challenges with Architecture, sizing and other areas with Jaspersoft provided that Jaspersoft comes up with the right set of innovation, performance, scalability, and documentation in future it will be great expansion (win-win) situation for the clients and as well as Jaspersoft.

There is a lot of room for improvement, but the basics are easy enough for non technical end users to pick up. It does allow them to get started, but it requires a lot more effort to customise their reports after that. The online community is very limited as well, so there isn't a lot of reference material available through a simple google search. A lot of people would have to go through the support channels to do things, which ultimately means they don't end up doing it, unfortunately.

While the training was somewhat beneficial, a lot of what was taught to us was what we managed to figure out in the weeks prior. It did provide some useful tips and reference material, but overall something more tailored to our requirements would've been better.

New releases can be very buggy, also lacking when it comes to standard time zones and formats that are outside the US. As a company we never feel comfortable implementing a new release for at least 3-6 months due to errors that are found

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.
Amy Broome | TrustRadius Reviewer

Crystal reports is very expensive and does not integrate well with java based servers. Jasper also provides community edition, if we every want to downgrade the use, we always have the option of eliminating the server and using the reports as they are. Jasper also give you the opportunity to build BI on case by base basis including Dashboards.

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.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Jaspersoft Community Edition has not had any significant impact on our ROI as we have purchased the commercial edition of the product.
  • The only impact on ROI is that when we bring on new developers, he or she can begin work using the community edition while awaiting the installation of the commercial edition.
