Actuate Integrates ActuateOne BI Platform and BIRT onDemand SaaS with Amazon Redshift for Big Data Analytics in the Cloud

San Mateo, Calif., – May 1, 2013 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined, today announced that they have integrated ActuateOne® – Actuate’s BIRT-based suite of commercial products for development and deployment of custom business analytics applications – and BIRT onDemand™ – Actuate’s SaaS version of ActuateOne – with Amazon Redshift, AWS’s new petabyte-scale cloud warehouse service. This announcement heralds yet another addition to Actuate’s rapidly growing stable of ActuateOne connectors for Big-Data-ready data sources that enable developers, IT departments and OEMs to deliver world-class BI applications.

When the already blazingly fast visualization and analysis features of ActuateOne are combined with Amazon Redshift’s performance, scalability and low cost (under $1,000/terabyte/year) – organizations of all sizes reap the benefits of ultra-fast access and near-speed-of-thought visualization for Cloud-based business analytics on real-time Big Data workloads of any size or complexity.

"When integrated with Amazon Redshift, ActuateOne users are suddenly able to scale data at the same rate as ActuateOne scales users,” said Jeff Morris, VP of Product Marketing at Actuate. “Amazon Redshift can improve query performance and deliver data faster to ActuateOne, where it can be intuitively displayed and reconfigured in seconds through drag and drop interfaces to show patterns and anomalies and generate insights that lead to meaningful business improvements. Additionally, Amazon Redshift helps customers overcome one of the Big Issues in Big Data, which is where to put the data: “If not in Hadoop, then where?” With this integration, we enable data already in the cloud to remain there for ActuateOne visualization.”

“We’re pleased to see Actuate integrate ActuateOne and BIRT onDemand with Amazon Redshift,” said Terry Wise, Head of Worldwide Ecosystem, AWS. “With this integration, customers will benefit from Amazon Redshift’s performance, ease of use, scalability and low price, along with the rich analysis and visualization capabilities of Actuate’s solutions.”
