Overall Satisfaction with Actuate

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.
  • We integrate page level security allowing a single report to service audiences of 20,000+ consumers but only deliveing the data in the vast data set applicable to the consumer.
  • Publish common components allowing the development staff to deliver consistent look and feel based on the standard firm style guide.
  • Reusable library objects allow for fast deployment of new application reports.
  • Report rendering can take a long time for large reports (250,000+ pages) - we run these in batch over night
  • The deployment of production code from development to test to production enviroments can be complex due to the number of components that must compile
We looked at a few other competitor's products but based on value for features chose Actuate for its total cost of ownership.
We have invested much into the software and hardware that supports our reporting platform - Actuate is a staple in our environment.
Actuate is used extensively as a developemnt tool and by 10s of thousands of end users. Virtually every line of business in our large financial institution uses Actuate - many who are unaware because the components are built into our home grown applications.
We connect to various data sources and enjoy quick connectivity.
We support an enterprise library of core components and deploy thousands of reports for varying business cases. We have integrated our network security into the product ensuring data does not get in the hands of those without access.
We have created many dashboards and scorecards with ease using the e.Report Designer Professional product.
e.Report Designer Professional and the report output is suited to application embedded reports - but we also use the product to publish information for data analysts and finance deeper analysis.
