Actuate Corporation announced Actuate 8, a real-time Enterprise Reporting Application Platform with integrated EII. The on-demand data access capabilities of EII in combination with the new version of Actuate’s Enterprise Reporting Application Platform allow organizations to gain real-time operational visibility. Actuate leverages EII technology that the company acquired through its acquisition of Nimble Technology to provide the ability to deliver dynamic information to users in the formats they expect — dashboards for executives and line managers, real-time web reports for customer service employees, spreadsheets for sales representatives and finance professionals, and personalized cubes for business analysts. Actuate 8 extends the data warehouse by providing users with on-demand access to information integrated from varied and disparate sources including ERP and CRM applications, data warehouses, legacy systems as well as XML and ODBC-based data sources. Actuate 8 includes a unified metadata layer which improves the overall accuracy of information analysis and is accessible by all products within Actuate’s platform. Actuate 8 will be available as a limited production release on June 30th and will be generally available in July. Pricing for Actuate 8 starts at $500 per named user.
