Actuate's ActuateOne Achieves VMware Ready™ Status

San Mateo, Calif., - January 25, 2012 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), the people behind BIRT® and the leader in open source business intelligence (BI), today announced that ActuateOne has achieved VMware Ready™ status. This designation indicates that ActuateOne, its BIRT-based BI software platform, has passed a detailed evaluation and testing process managed by VMware and is now listed on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).

Passing the extensive VMware-specified testing helps ensure that ActuateOne makes best use of VMware technology and is ready for deployment in customer environments.

“We are pleased that ActuateOne qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it has passed specific VMware testing and interoperability criteria and is ready to run in production environments,” said Sheryl Sage, Director, Alliance Programs, VMware.

“Cloud capabilities are a must-have for companies that see Business Intelligence as a strategic asset,” said Wenfeng Li, Vice President of Product Development, Actuate. “Unlike other BI software, ActuateOne has been architected specifically to support private and public cloud deployments. In conjunction with VMware’s vSphere, ActuateOne’s unique elastic clustering capabilities allow capacity to be dynamically added or removed to meet changing workloads requirements. By using ActuateOne with VMware vSphere 5, enterprises can have the flexibility in how and where they access and analyze their critical data.”

The VMware Ready program is a VMware co-branding program for qualified partner products and is a benefit of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. With more than 2,000 members worldwide, the VMware TAP program works with best-of-breed technology partners to provide them a comprehensive set of VMware technical and marketing services, support, tools and expertise to deliver enhanced value to joint customers.
