Many of our clients use open source platforms and we are seeing a growing interest in BIRT and ActuateOne within our client base. We believe that BIRT - which is a widely adopted, open source technology - combined with Actuate’s application development approach to Business Intelligence, visualisation and dashboarding deployments, shows great promise for a successful, longstanding alliance,” said Mr. V.
