Actuate Unveils BIRT iHub: Next Generation Big Data Hub

Framework to Deliver Insights to End Users From Big Data to Touch Devices

San Mateo, Calif., – October 31, 2012 –
Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced the BIRT iHub, a next generation solution deployment framework for delivering applications that keep end users up to date on the insights they need to run their businesses - wherever they are.

Actuate will be launching a series of ActuateOne solutions based on the BIRT iHub in the coming months. Because of Actuate’s long standing leadership in interactive content, scale, performance, reliability, flexibility and security, ActuateOne solutions delivered by the BIRT iHub are able to evolve as performance measures and end user requirements change simultaneously. Because BIRT iHub provides all of the elements needed to deploy intuitive, self-service information applications, non-technical users are presented with insights identified through visual data mining and predictive analytics, plus dashboards and managed metrics that operationalize KPIs to minimize risk, manage costs and speed business success.

”With the BIRT iHub, ActuateOne becomes even better equipped to deploy any application that delivers insight derived from Big Data - all the way to touch devices,” said Pete Cittadini, CEO and President, Actuate Corporation. “ActuateOne with BIRT iHub is ready to meet customer needs today and tomorrow, no matter what follows Big Data. Business users want to be able to answer more complex inquiries, and with BIRT iHub combining technology from Quiterian in the form of BIRT Analytics with the entire Actuate product line, the inability to combine analytical power and simplicity will become a thing of the past.”
