Actuate will Resell Webalo’s Mobile Dashboard Allowing Seamless Access to Actuate Content on BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian and Java-enabled Smartphones
London, UK – September 29th , 2008 – – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTU), the leader in delivering Rich Internet Applications Without Limits™ and Webalo Inc., today announced an agreement in which Actuate will resell Webalo’s “Mobile Dashboard” as part of a mobile solution to deliver e.Spreadsheets and BIRT reports directly to BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, or Java-enabled smartphones. Actuate will sell the customised mobile product directly to its customers.
No longer will eSpreadsheet and BIRT report users be limited by “office only” access. Actuate’s mobile solution with Webalo service will allow BIRT reports to be sent directly to mobile devices. Additionally, the solution will provide users of Actuate e.Spreadsheet with a simple wizard to configure their reports for mobile devices. Actuate will embed Webalo’s Mobile Dashboard into its mobile solution, ensuring that customers can deliver up to date content into the hands of mobile users.
“We’ve been pleased with our long association with Actuate,” commented Webalo president & CEO, Peter Price. “Integrating our Mobile Dashboard into their mobile solution offering will facilitate almost ubiquitous delivery of high-value business intelligence to an ever expanding universe of mobile devices.”
According to IDC’s Worldwide Mobile Worker Population 2007-2011 Forecast, the number of worldwide mobile workers will reach 1 billion - representing nearly 75% of the U.S. workforce in 2011 . Actuate’s mobile solution is at the forefront of addressing the needs of this demanding workforce. With the Actuate Mobile solution combining web sites, web services, enterprise applications and databases to create personalised productivity environments is simplified. This is a natural fit for Actuate, the leader in delivering Rich Internet Applications without Limits.
“Webalo’s Mobile Dashboard makes it possible to extend nearly any enterprise application for mobile use,” said Nobby Akiha, Actuate’s senior vice president of marketing. “Working with Webalo will enable us to meet the corporate demand for increased productivity through mobility. Offering Webalo directly to our customers meets this demand most efficiently.”
Webalo technology transforms enterprise applications and data to make them compatible with mobile devices. This eliminates the need for traditional custom programming, reducing the deployment of mobile applications from weeks or months to, in most cases, less than a day. The resulting "anywhere, any time, on-demand" availability of enterprise data on handheld devices turns such devices into viable alternatives to desktop, laptop, and palmtop computer hardware, and lets mobile employees work more productively — on the spot — to solve problems, answer questions, monitor operations, close sales, and make informed decisions.
The Webalo Mobile Dashboard Service — available both as a hosted service and as a behind-the-firewall appliance — lets non-IT business administrators securely specify the content of mobile-accessible information, and the companion Webalo Proxy Server configures it, in seconds, to conform to the native user interface of any BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, or Java-enabled smartphone. Webalo's technology transforms the role of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) into a User Oriented Architecture, enabling Web services to communicate with users as effectively as they communicate with other system services.
Software vendors and system integrators such as Actuate, IBM, Nokia, and RIM are working with Webalo to enhance both their service oriented business applications and their mobile devices. Los Angeles based, Webalo is privately held and was founded in 2000. For further information, visit www.webalo.com.
