Business Analytics Software

Actuate helps keep your customers engaged with personalized analytics and insights.

Analytics software is one of the most important business intelligence (BI) tools for any organization in today’s data-driven world. As data is collected at exponentially growing rates every day, companies require powerful business analytics products strong enough to process Big Data or massive amounts of raw information. Imagine being able to tap into those enormous volumes of data to engage in all kinds of analytics—from customer analytics to marketing analytics to financial analytics to sales force analytics and more—with one big data analytics software solution. BIRT is non-market specific, which makes it extremely versatile in its application across any industry for any kind of data—especially Big Data—and for every kind of analytics imaginable. Analyzing Big Data can be one of the toughest challenges for companies, not only because of its sheer size, but also because it amasses from a variety of sources in multiple formats. Actuate provides businesses solutions that turn Big Data into smart visualizations, allowing any user to channel those insights to make better-informed decisions. Built for exploring millions of records at a time from numerous sources, BIRT Analytics software is a whopping fifty times faster than other big data analytics solutions out there at only a fraction of their costs.

Visualize your data stories with BIRT and actualize Big Data analytics.

What stories will your data reveal?

Big Data by itself is meaningless without the right analytics software to access and present it in an optimal format that people can actually comprehend and analyze. Displaying statistical data in images or visual forms like graphs, diagrams, decision trees, charts, and tables enables anyone to see buried details and histories behind even the most convoluted and large data sets.
Actuate demystifies the data discovery process by providing real-time visual data mining tools for non-technical business users. With BIRT Analytics, the complicated task of data mining is transformed into a much simpler and time-efficient process: it’s as easy as drag and drop! As a tool for predictive analytics, visual data mining allows business users to dig through their unseen caves of stored information to discover data
gems—patterns, trends, correlations, and anomalies—in order to make more accurate predictions, forecast opportunities, and generate strategies for long-term stability and success.

BIRT Analytics lets anyone thoroughly explore huge trails of data—petabytes of information from personally selected sources—and analyze the findings without IT help.
To get the most value out of your organization’s vast data collections, everyone on your team should be able to interact with and assess all your business information. Actuate's visual data mining tools are so user-friendly that virtually anyone can excavate data fields self-sufficiently to uncover the history of Big Data.

By simply dragging and dropping files in an Excel-like environment, users can present complex data sets in the form of instantly generated visual illustrations, making it easier to spot answers to their questions. Instead of sifting through piles of spreadsheets, reports, and stacks of files to evaluate your business operations, you can save time, money, and company-wide resources by using Actuate’s self-service visual data mining tools.

Social Media Analytics for Clear Social Insights

Social media analytics has become critical to understanding your customer base, gaining customer insights, and getting a general feel for public trends, opinions, or sentiments. As the Internet provides a platform for infinite sharing of information, people generally trust things—websites, articles, products, companies, events, or services—that are liked or recommended by people they know (or even by people they don’t know, just as long as there are a lot of people raving about those things). The more something is liked, shared, or tweeted in cyberspace through social media platforms, the more attention that thing gets, the more popular it becomes and the more value it gains. As people vouch for things, it creates a sense of security, validating a reason for other people to try them out as well. In this way, social media literally has the power to add value to things, which means that the data generated from social sharing is, in fact, a new important source of business intelligence for organizations that want to stay in the loop.

The U.S. Library of Congress archives every tweet for historical purposes. That’s some serious Big Data!

58 million = the estimated average number of Twitter tweets per day.

5 = the number of days it takes for 1 billion tweets to be tweeted.

By the time you finish reading this sentence, over 9,100 tweets will have already been tweeted.

What will your next tweet be?
More and more companies are leveraging social media analytics as a means to monitor and improve customer relations, increase brand loyalty, and understand customer experience better. Not only that, but the data from social media provides unsolicited, raw customer knowledge for any company seeking to hear what the public wants, likes, or dislikes. All those valuable statistics are flooding the Web waiting to be unlocked and studied! So, how do you pull data from social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ in order to track the impact on your organization? While accessing those large streams of social media data to evaluate them effectively is often difficult, with BIRT Analytics you can easily channel those pools of information and create dashboard visualizations for at-a-glance updates about your Twitter followers, Facebook fans, or Google+ circles. Actuate’s business analytics software gives your organization the ability to stay in tune with social media feedback and analyze it to refine strategies, targeted campaigns, and products or services.
