Overall Satisfaction with Actuate

Actuate is being used by selected user groups across the entire organization. It allows us to bring in data from multiple sources and evaluate performance under consolidated locations and measures.
  • Easy data import
  • Multiple levels of user security
  • Limited report writing ability unless you implant the iServer applications
  • End users have little or no control over data displays
Upper management looking for big data solutions.
We have about 2300 licensed users, but probably less than 1/3 actually log in during a quarter time. Less than 10% would be considered proficient users.
Easy to set up data imports from a variety of sources and use scripts to automatically import data. Manual imports and translators also very easy to use.
Basic scorecard without iServer and Birt360 modules are extremely limited in reporting ability. Scheduling pushed reports also fairly technical.
Basic Scorecard without add on modules and Birt360 very limited in data displays.
Scorecard without the Birt360 module is very limited in reporting and data displays. End users who are not computer savvy would have a difficult time using the advanced features.
