San Mateo, Calif. – September 24 –
Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced registration is open for the annual one-day Actuate conferences. Taking place in San Francisco on November 8th and New York City on November 14th, ActuateOne Live! 2012 will feature influential industry speakers – presenting the latest trends and best practices on Big Data and data visualization – along with the annual keynote speech by Actuate CEO Pete Cittadini. During the complimentary conference, attendees will learn best practices and gain insights into the future of Business Intelligence and Business Analytics – while experiencing the related benefits of ActuateOne®.

Through a wide range of business and technical sessions, attendees will learn how to use ActuateOne to deliver powerful analyses and dashboards that lead to new insights and better business decisions.

Data visualization and graphics guru Geoff McGhee explains, “In the effort to manage the volume of public and private data available today, interactive visualization of data anomalies and trends becomes even more critical. I’m pleased to present at Actuate’s event in New York my findings and recommendations on how to ease this process." McGhee is a multimedia and graphics journalist who spent years at The New York Times, ABC News and Le Monde, and is the producer of the acclaimed 2010 documentary "Journalism in the Age of Data.” He now works at the Bill Lane Center for the American West, a research institute at Stanford University.
