BIRT Drives the Open Source BI Movement

Actuate Corporation’s open source success story started in 2004 with the founding of the BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) open source project with the Eclipse Foundation, home of the Eclipse Development Framework. According to Forrester Research, (The Forrester Wave™: Open Source Business Intelligence [BI]) “… as BIRT is part of the Eclipse project, Actuate BIRT is also highly attractive to developers using Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE).”
