Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The people behind BIRT® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced further traction in the number of independent software vendors (ISVs) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers adopting Actuate’s value added offerings for BIRT - ActuateOne®- as their embedded Business Intelligence platform of choice.
In the competitive and continuously changing software landscape, it’s important to stay one step ahead. Developing, supporting and maintaining home-grown BI can be unrealistic from a cost and time-to-market perspective, while typical out-of-the-box BI tools rarely deliver the flexibility that customers demand. Actuate BIRT is the only platform for building BI content that is able to seamlessly adopt the look and feel of a company’s application, deliver an intuitive and fully interactive end user experience and offer a comprehensive set of APIs to all BI and reporting functionality.
For these reasons, more companies are embedding ActuateOne’s highly customizable, visually-rich, data analysis based user experience into their software products. Actuate's highly flexible licensing and application deployment options allow software partners to take ActuateOne to market as Software-as-a-Service, hosted applications, embedded functionality and as dedicated appliances – offering unlimited scalability and functionality to any deployment.
Among Actuate’s 200+ OEM, SaaS and BIRT partners are some of the biggest names in software, including Computer Associates, Cisco, BMC Software, Infor, GE Healthcare and Siemens. Recent additions include Integrated Data Services, Inc, Access Data and eMeter.
"We collaborated with Actuate to provide our end-users with ad-hoc reporting analysis through our Web CCaRTM (Comprehensive Cost and Requirement System) product," said John Cole, CTO, Integrated Data Services, Inc.. "We evaluated a number of products to find a solution that would meet the needs of our end-users while complying with strict security guidelines. ActuateOne's interactive viewing and web-based report design tools allowed us to provide our customers with access to their data in the formats they desire. In selecting ActuateOne, we were able to reduce time-to-market and execute an accelerated deployment so our customers can have the best and most up-to-date solution to drive their reporting needs."
“We've been using Eclipse BIRT for some time now and will soon implement ActuateOne within our SalesVision application suite,” said Frank Polefrone, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Access Data, a Broadridge Financial Solutions company. “The addition of ActuateOne will provide our user base of asset managers and financial intermediaries the ability to personalize their own reports with exactly the capabilities they want. The interactivity, feature-set and flexibility of BIRT will allow our users to get more out of existing reports without requiring any new development.”
Actuate’s cloud-ready, cloud-friendly BIRT iServer and Actuate’s SaaS BI platform - BIRT onDemand - provides OEMs with multiple options for seamless integration and deployment of customer-facing applications, and provides the maximum flexibility while reducing the ISV’s cost of support and maintenance. In addition, BIRT iServer’s architecture is based upon ActuateOne – one design, one server and one user experience – to improve developer productivity and optimize the end user experience, even within virtualized and cloud environments.
