Document Management Industry Gives the Thumbs-up to Actuate’s Xenos Enterprise Server™

London, UK - October 5th , 2011 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The people behind BIRT® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced that Actuate Xenos Enterprise Server™ was crowned Software Product of the Year at the 2011 Document Management Industry Awards, for the second consecutive year.

The category winners were announced at an awards ceremony attended by several hundred people from the Document Management (DM) industry at the Hotel Russell in London on 29th September 2011. Now in its fifth year, the DM awards have fast established themselves as one of the ‘must-attend’ calendar events for the sector. Using a combination of online voting and an expert judging panel the awards span a range of product and project categories. This year saw a significant increase in online votes with social media technologies like Twitter and LinkedIn playing a big part to promote the event and the categories.

The DM Awards are voted for by the readers of Document Manager Magazine and are designed to reward the outstanding products, suppliers and projects of the year. Xenos Enterprise Server fought off stiff competition to win this much coveted award category.

Xenos Enterprise Server simplifies the challenge of designing integrated business information architecture and process flows for both structured and unstructured data. Xenos Enterprise Server delivers organisational control over data and document transformation from a centralised location within the enterprise. This improves operational efficiency, enhances business processes, reduces risk for compliance management and increases employee productivity with lowered total-cost-of-ownership both for the enterprise and for its customers.

Jeff Mills is Vice President EMEA, Actuate – Xenos Group and comments, “We are delighted to have been lined up against such well known industry names and to have emerged victorious as Software Product of the Year. To do this two years in a row is even more rewarding and is a true endorsement of our relentless focus on delivering quality, enterprise-class, information solutions that simplify structured and unstructured documents and data.”
