Actuate Brings BIRT Mashboard App to the Enterprise

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTU), the people behind BIRT™, today announced the availability of the BIRT Mashboard app on the BIRT Exchange Marketplace. The Marketplace is an open software showcase on the most active online BIRT community, where any developer can promote, share or sell BIRT-related applications, solutions and components. The BIRT Mashboard app is free to download as a one-click-install and enables users to create secure information mashups of BIRT, Actuate and any other Web-based content with drag-and-drop simplicity. In bringing together multiple content sources with BIRT Mashboard enterprise business users can maximize productivity by easily personalizing critical information in a visually appealing canvas.

The BIRT Mashboard app gives business users a light-weight easy to use way of meeting business challenges associated with effectively centralizing and monitoring information. With rich information generated from Actuate, BIRT and Web-based content, businesses are looking to gain visibility into multiple sources of data. The BIRT Mashboard app meets these needs by providing businesses with extra depth and dimension into corporate information with report creation, visualizations and analytic tools needed to successfully monitor and run Rich Information Applications in the Enterprise.

“BIRT Mashboard has significantly helped us increase the flexibility of our adi Reporting Suite by giving users access to rich information from numerous sources on canvasses that are easy to use and pleasing to the eye,” said Klaus Beck-Dede, CEO of adept consult AG. “We look forward to the BIRT Mashboard app as an addition to the existing BIRT technology we use to ensure that our customers can significantly increase their success.”

The BIRT Mashboard easily integrates with existing applications and infrastructure, and users familiar with BIRT can quickly create architecture that exceeds competitive offerings for extended Rich Information Application experiences. With a dynamic AJAX-based user interface, users have access to portlet-to-portlet communication that synchronizes data being displayed across multiple portlets. Both existing Actuate iServer customers and prospective users can access the technology on a free trial basis with a minimum barrier to entry. Existing BIRT iServer customers have access to built-in user and role based security to store personal and global configuration files.

“We are excited see the BIRT Exchange Marketplace grow with new apps such as BIRT Mashboard and continue to galvanize the BIRT ecosystem and fueling its ongoing momentum,” said Nobby Akiha, senior vice president of marketing at Actuate. “BIRT Mashboard app is the latest Rich Information Application to be delivered to the enterprise and is the next step in ensuring our customers have accurate, actionable information with industry leading developer options and end-user control.”

Additional BIRT Mashboard app Features

  • Canvas Usability:
    • Users can modify, save, rearrange or add portlets to a single web page or ‘canvas’
    • Embedded customization easily adheres to an application’s look, feel and behavior.
  • Inter-portlet Communication and Awareness:
    • Users can change a value in one portlet and have it reflected in another.
  • Portlet “Minimize/Maximize” Functionality:
    • Users can hide or show the body of a portlet by clicking on the minimize/maximize icon in the portlet title bar. Minimizing conceals the portlet content without removing it from the canvas.
  • Global Canvases:
    • Allows for a single preconfigured canvas of portlets to be deployed to a community of users at once.
