Saba Software Recognized for Excellence in Business Intelligence

SINGAPORE- ActuateOne Live! - December 1, 2011 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The people behind BIRT® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today recognized Saba Software with a BIRT Excellence Award for achieving outstanding business performance from their BIRT-based business intelligence application.

Saba Software, a leading provider of learning, people management and collaboration technologies, is an award recipient in the BIRT implementation category for their Saba People Cloud Adoption Metrics portal.

We chose Actuate’s technology for its ease of use, robust deployment, great support, extensive API integration capabilities and rapid implementation,” said Gaurav Ruchandani, Technical Lead, Saba Software India Pvt.
