Government Technology Research Alliance Recognises Actuate for Key Contributions to Government-wide Initiatives

London, UK – February 14th , 2012 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), the people behind BIRT® and the leader in open source business intelligence (BI), today announced that it has been awarded a GOVTek award and named “Top Solution Provider to Watch for in 2012” by the Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA).

Nominees from Civilian, Defense, Intelligence agencies and industry were evaluated and voted on by GTRA Council Members and their community peers and given recognition in the areas most relevant to government IT today including social media, infrastructure, leadership, cyber security, green IT, and transparency.

"GTRA is thrilled to see Actuate be recognised in the government IT community as a ‘Top Solution Provider to Watch for in 2012’,” said Kelly Yocum, CEO and co-founder of GTRA.

"IT is quite literally the foundation that allows the US Government to serve and protect the nation and its citizens," said Parham Eftekhari, GTRA Co-founder and director of research. "Unfortunately, IT leaders and their accomplishments are oftentimes the "unsung-heroes" of Washington. The GOVTek Awards Gala is GTRA's way of recognising these innovators and thanking them for their dedication and invaluable service to our country, war fighters and citizens."

“We are honoured to be recognised by the GTRA with this GOVTek award,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Actuate Corporation. “A large part of our customer base comprises US Federal (including Defense), state and local government agencies. We are pleased the high standards we set with ActuateOne® meet the need for secure and ccustomisable business intelligence applications which help all levels of government manage performance goals, quickly assess visualised data, and efficiently deliver citizen-serving programs.”

GTRA’s “GOVTek Executive Government Technology Awards Gala” is a celebration of government and industry IT leaders whose vision, innovation and remarkable accomplishments in 2011 have improved the way government delivers services, interacts with citizens, shares information, and protects its national assets. Actuate was honored at the Gala, held at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on February 2, 2012.
