Actuate Corporation today announced an alliance with Pervasive Software Inc. that will enable business data analysts to rapidly review, prepare and analyze big data, and display intuitive data visualizations to support users’ ability to make efficient business decisions.

By speeding Big Data-based decision making, powering predictive analytics and decreasing capital and operating costs, ActuateOne and Pervasive RushAnalyzer “will make Big Data analytics and powerful visualizations available to business users in any industry and to the BIRT developer community.”

“Pervasive RushAnalyzer, the first predictive analytics product to run natively on Hadoop, enables users to rapidly transform and analyze terabytes of data on commodity hardware, and ActuateOne provides the advanced visualization capabilities to support insights and more productive conclusions,” said Mike Hoskins, CTO and general manager of Pervasive, Big Data Products and Solutions. “Pervasive’s seamless integration with Actuate, via BIRT, puts advanced Big Data analytic insights and actionable intelligence into the hands of multiple roles within an organization.”

“Big Data analytics has been traditionally been the realm of data scientists,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Actuate. “By teaming with Pervasive, we are changing the game to ensure business users are in the driver’s seat to analyze Big Data sources so that they can operationalize and deliver insights to everyday users.”

ActuateOne – an integrated suite of standard and cloud software built around BIRT – enables easy visualization of data trends through customizable BIRT-based dashboards and Google-standard plug-and-play gadgets. Pervasive RushAnalyzer lets data analysts build and deploy predictive analytics solutions on multiple platforms, including Hadoop clusters and high-performance servers, to rapidly discover data patterns, build operational analytics and deliver predictive analytics. The drag-and-drop graphical interface speeds data preparation with direct access to multiple databases and file formats, as well as a prebuilt library of data mining and analytic operators, leading to simpler data manipulation, mining and visualization.

Actuate Corporation, the people behind BIRT and an open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced a collaboration between Actuate BIRT and the Hortonworks Data Platform, to enable Big Data visualization. The Hortonworks Data Platform is a completely open source, tightly integrated and tested distribution of Apache Hadoop, backed by extensive customer support and training.

The ActuateOne integrated product suite—built around BIRT—uses native access Hive query to leverage MapReduce functions to extract data from Hadoop, pulling those data sets into customizable BIRT-based dashboards and scorecards for interactive visualization and analysis.

“We have dedicated significant resources to make Apache Hadoop more robust and easier to integrate, extend, deploy and use,” said John Kreisa, VP of Marketing at Hortonworks. “Our partnership with open source BI leader Actuate enables more users to cost effectively analyze vast amounts of data stored in Hadoop using open source technologies.”

“Actuate’s collaboration with Hortonworks will ease the transition from Big Data hype to Big Data usefulness,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Actuate. “We believe the key to success with Big Data lies in building the right infrastructure to manage it. Teaming with Hortonworks will further our goal of helping organizations figure out how best to leverage and integrate Big Data sources to enable better decision making.”

Large organizations are increasingly turning to Apache Hadoop for the storage and management of massive amounts of data and thus need scalable ways to explore, analyze and visualize the insights stored within it. The combination of the Hortonworks Data Platform’s distributed processing of Hadoop data sources of any size, with Actuate’s scalable infrastructure and intuitive data visualization capabilities, enables organizations to more effectively operationalize Big Data for thousands of customers, partners and employees.
