There are multiple business problems you get from your clients where you need to study a lot of unstructured data. It could be ranging from social media analytics or call centre data or any review data. Text mining is the process of deriving high-quality information from text. This software is much intuitive and easy to use. Text mining goes beyond simply searching for keywords. It uses powerful algorithms to analyse that content, determine what a given piece of text is about and assess its relevance. We have use cases of this software in helping multiple industries' clients pre-dominantly in Retail and CPG. Sentiment analysis and text segmentation are key project types that we use this software for. Generally, we used to have Python and R text libraries to solve these issues but this software simplifies the process and reduces the requirement of coding.

OpenText Magellan is being used to fulfill specific reporting requirements across the whole company. The reports are served to users through links or being embedded within custom solutions. OpenText Magellan allows us to provide reporting capabilities to our custom solutions. The ability to generate complex reports even allowed us to replace some screens in our solutions with Magellan reports. Users don't really know they are accessing a different solution for their reports, which makes up for very smooth user experience.

We are using it to present reports to customers and to our executives for our rich media advertising business. Our entire business uses this as a reporting platform. We had internally developed reporting, that worked well, but was hard to support and extend and expensive to maintain. We also wanted to embed it in another application to include customer facing reporting in the platform they use.

Actuate is an embedded part of several of our applications. It helps us deliver information content via reports to end users and it allows the user to customize the reports with many excel like features such as sorting, aggregation, font changes, hide/show, etc.

Actuate was being used with IBM Maximo to generate reports from our CMMS system. The reporting software served as our primary reporting tool and paper work order generation mechanism. Its availability and continuity were crucial to the maintenance and indirect procurement functions.

Actuate is the standardized reporting platform for seamless integration of custom schedule and ad hoc reporting into our internally built applications. Reports are made available across the firm in all lines of business and support services allowing access to data from our core repository. There are both dynamic (allowing the passing of parameters) and static reporting available.
