Actuate Named a 2010 “Company to Watch” by TechWeb’s Intelligent Enterprise

Actuate Recognized as a Leader in Open Source Business Intelligence

San Mateo, Calif. – February 25, 2010 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTU), the people behind BIRT™, today announced TechWeb's Intelligent Enterprise Editors’ Choice Awards named  it a 2010 “Company to Watch”  in the Business Intelligence (BI) category.  Through its awards program, Intelligent Enterprise recognizes technology providers that lead the way in innovation and business optimization. Now in its 11th year, the Editors’ Choice Awards have recognized Actuate for creating and leading the Eclipse BIRT project and supporting the developer community.

Actuate has observed a movement towards richer, interactive interfaces for business and consumer facing web applications as well as the disruptive nature of open source and the competitive edge it brings. Actuate has taken advantage of both of these trends by delivering BIRT-based offerings for creating Rich Information Applications (RIAs) that feature interactive content, dashboards and mashups.  Additionally, Actuate continues to oversee the evolution of BIRT and the BIRT community to drive its business.  It is this opportunistic strategy that has earned Actuate recognition as a “Company to Watch” by the editors at Intelligent Enterprise.

“Intelligent enterprises aren't just surviving in challenging times, they are optimizing, innovating and thriving with the help of the technology and service providers highlighted in this year's Editors' Choice awards," said Editor in Chief, Doug Henschen.

“We are honored that Intelligent Enterprise has recognized Actuate and its innovation in delivering Rich Information Applications to the market,” said Nobby Akiha, senior vice president of marketing at Actuate. “Such an accolade underscores our commitment to fostering collaboration and innovation around BIRT to meet the current and future demands for rich interactive applications."
