New alliance and solution enable faster time to market and significantly reduce need for custom development
San Mateo, Calif. – August 7, 2014 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ and the leader in personalized analytics and insights, today announced an alliance with Versiant Corporation, a leading provider of IT professional services and marine terminal solutions support. By combining technology from Actuate’s Content Services Group (formerly Xenos) with Versiant’s expertise, marine terminal customers will be able to benefit from structured data integration and normalization solutions that promise to increase the effectiveness of their terminal operating systems (TOS).
Through the use of Actuate’s Data Integration module (part of the Actuate Customer Communications Suite™) Versiant will be able to optimize operations for marine terminal operators and transact data among its customers, by graphically configuring and testing process flows and integration.
