Intelligent information

Actuate claims to be the first company within the business intelligence marketplace to integrate enterprise information integration (EII) technology into an enterprise reporting solution – enabling real-time reporting applications. The powerful on-demand data access capabilities of EII in combination with the new version of Actuate’s leading Enterprise Reporting Application Platform, allow organisations to gain real-time operational visibility, improve customer profitability and distribute accountability throughout the organisation. 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. In addition, Actuate provides organisations with the industry’s only server-managed spreadsheet solution, which has been enhanced in Actuate 8 to include PivotTables, Data Filters and other Excel functionality, thereby meeting business users’ need for the ease of use of Excel while maintaining “one version of the truth”.
