Actuate Executives to Present "Turning Developer Passion into Advocacy" at Evans Developer Relations Conference on March 18th

San Mateo, Calif., – March 12, 2013 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced their participation in the annual Evans Developer Relations Conference. Presenting for the third year in a row, Nobby Akiha, SVP of Marketing for Actuate, and Ray Gans, Community Manager for BIRT-Exchange.org, will demonstrate how Actuate is working with the most active developers in the BIRT community to reward their efforts and drive community advocacy.

“Whether they are using open source BIRT or ActuateOne® – the BIRT-based suite of commercial products for development and deployment of custom analytics applications – our developers have invaluable knowledge and influence that supports the community development efforts,” said Akiha. “By recognizing and rewarding our developers’ willingness to ‘spread the word’ in the physical and virtual spaces where they hang out, we gain influence and insights into conversations we otherwise never could achieve.”

The Developer Relations Conference features presentations from developer relations experts in leading software, telecom and web companies. The event showcases the latest survey data on developers' technology adoption, views on program features and adoption, development preferences and “wish lists” on topics such as Cloud, mobile development and embedded systems.

During the past two years the audience for Actuate’s presentations at this conference has included community managers, developer relations managers, evangelism managers, developer event planners, and senior executives responsible for developer programs.
