It's essential to keep in mind that hardly any software in the Data Analytics Software category is a perfect solution that can meet all the requirements of all business types, sizes and industries. It may be a good idea to read a few Actian reviews first as specific solutions may dominate exclusively in a very small set of applications or be designed with a really specific type of industry in mind. Others may work with a goal of being easy and intuitive and as a result lack complicated features needed by more experienced users. You can also come across services that focus on a large group of customers and offer a rich feature set, but this usually comes at a more significant price of such a service. Make sure you're aware of your requirements so that you buy a software that has specifically the elements you look for.
