Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why.

If you have the budget for it it can do great things, if you are a small company run, don't walk away.

They have nice html5 charts as well as other types, with many types of styles. Visualizations can be extended using scripting. Mapping and Dashboards in iHub 3 and F-type are very powerful. Would like to see the ability to use charting from d3 or other frameworks.

Actuate BIRT - open source that's worth a look

The BIRT designer is the weakest link on this chain. It's great because you get one. It's also aggravating because it is unstable and crashes while the report is being designed. There is little feedback while network transactions take place, leaving many newbies confused as to why the interface is frozen, etc.

Acuate 8 before the birth of BIRT

Actuate 8 did provide for graphing and making colored charts and highlighting certain fields based on criteria, however the majority of alternative reporting solutions did the same exact thing. The graphs also looked very "Microsoft 1995" if you know what I mean. Presenting them to stakeholders sometimes felt like I was trying to show off an antiquated product.
