There is multiple software available in the market to do the reporting and text analytics. Generally, analysts prefer using Python or R. Or we try to use any API available. This software can fulfill almost 80% of those needs without writing the codes. It has the integration with R as well for any further extension.

OpenText Magellan can produce reports that are much more elaborate than PowerBI, which is ideal for users that just need to see a report. On the other hand, PowerBI seems to be better at allowing users to interact with data.

  • Jaspersoft,Pentaho,Microsoft BI
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.

  • There is a myriad of reporting solutions and options tend to change every other year.
Actuate has been in the industry a while and the open source community make going with Actuate's BIRT a stable decision. Changing report engines can be expensive, so going with a company with a good reputation helps long-term.

  • Crystal Reports
Actuate has a HUGE number of features that can tie nicely into almost any ERP but it takes some time to learn and the development community was relatively small compared to the Crystal Reports alternative. Crystal was far easier to learn and had a massive support base. Probably because it is now owned by SAP.
