Actuate Launches BIRT iHub 3: New Generation of IT Administration with Unprecedented Control for all BI Projects throughout the Organization

Improvements include simplified deployment via cloud, SaaS and on-premise environments, as well as unlimited scalability through multi-tenant, multi-instance clustering

San Mateo, Calif., November 6, 2013Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – and the leader in personalized analytics and insights, today introduced a new generation of BIRT iHub™ that significantly eases the job of IT administrators who run one or more BIRT projects for internal or external audiences. BIRT iHub 3 enables broader administrator control across all Actuate products, including BIRT Analytics™, which delivers predictive analytics to business users for self service and Big Data; and BIRT Content Services™, a suite of content processing, transformation and accessibility services for customer communication management.

“BIRT iHub has become the deployment platform of choice for IT management in the banking, government, and technology sectors,” said Jeff Morris, Vice President of Product Marketing at Actuate. “No other vendor has our experience in deploying applications that deliver personalized insights and analytics on multi-tenant, multi-instance clusters in the cloud and on-premise environments. BIRT iHub 3 strengthens not only the software’s benefits to administrators and developers, but also our commitment to our customers.

“Scale and performance are traditional strengths of Actuate and our enterprise IT customers rely on us for that,” Morris continued. “Through the plethora of enhancements in BIRT iHub 3, we prepare our customers to truly leverage the inherent promise of Big Data, setting the stage to handle whatever changes come in the corporate analytic ecosystem of the future.”

BIRT iHub 3 sports an entirely new user experience which will be immediately appreciated as easier and more enjoyable to use by IT administrators. The new design is based on current consumer industry standards and web metaphors, and is instantly familiar from today’s ubiquitous smart phone and touch device interfaces.

BIRT iHub 3 allows organizations to deploy anywhere, at any scale, and still have the advantage of uniform management across all Actuate projects, without the need to consolidate data for multiple applications into one monolithic storage location. This allows decentralized application data and multitier system administration while enabling all the benefits of centralized infrastructure management.

Improved IT efficiency for broader system and admin control

BIRT iHub 3 is planned to ship by year-end.
