Open source business intelligence specialist Actuate Corporation is positioning its new ActuateOne product as a unified computing environment based upon one design, one server and one user experience to improve developer productivity when deploying from on-premise to the cloud.
The company says that applications based on ActuateOne deliver information from any data source including high volume print streams as it "redefines Business Intelligence" by moving away from a set of disparate tools to a suite of integrated capabilities within a single architecture for development and deployment.
"The current Business Intelligence user experience is disjointed and frustrating as end users try to get to the information they are looking for. It is akin to chaotic city driving with the added challenge of having to stop and change cars at every block," said Shaku Atre, president of BI-specilaist web agency Atre Group.
Technologically, the company notes that ActuateOne centers around the open source BIRT design, employs Actuate's BIRT iServer for high scale, high performance deployment and Actuate's value-added BIRT interactive and analytic features to create contextualized user experiences from within a single environment.
