San Mateo, Calif., – July 10, 2012 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), “The people behind BIRT”® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced an alliance with KXEN, the leading provider of predictive analytics for business users. The partnership will help companies seeking to improve decisions and optimize processes by deploying easy to use predictive analytics on petabytes of Big Data.
ActuateOne® – an integrated suite of standard and cloud software built around BIRT – offers native access to Big Data for analysis, dashboards, reporting and interactive visualization. ActuateOne can be used to build data sets or data visualisations that seamlessly combine Big Data sources with more traditional sources including SQL databases, XML data, document archives, print streams and flat files.
KXEN’s flagship product, InfiniteInsight™, delivers sophisticated predictive modelling capabilities to business users and data scientists, enabling them to derive insight about customers and optimize processes such as acquisition, cross-sell or retention in marketing automation. InfiniteInsight™ delivers orders of magnitude improvements in speed agility and performance through its patented modelling automation approach that is particularly well suited for Big Data analysis, where data sets often involve thousands variables of machine generated data that would overwhelm traditional approaches.
"Our partnership with Actuate has already set some exciting projects in motion," said Bruno Delahaye, SVP Business Development for KXEN. "We're pleased to be partnering with Actuate, the leader in open source Business Intelligence, and anticipate that this alliance will increase the value of both the KXEN and Actuate product families."
“Actuate believes the key to success with Big Data lies in building the right data-to-insight infrastructure to manage it. Our goal is to support our customers’ needs for Big Data infrastructure, from accessing data sources to visualizing to operationalizing data for collaborative decision making,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Actuate. “We are delighted to be working with KXEN to provide complementary analytics functionality to our ActuateOne customers.”
The combination of ActuateOne’s open, flexible approach to merge and visualize an array of Big Data sources, with KXEN’s automated predictive analytics capabilities, enables the fast creation of powerful information applications that facilitate deep-dive analysis and the discovery of previously unknown patterns for more effective and collaborative decision making.
