Technology Practices


Open source technology from the Eclipse Foundation's Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project forms the foundation for Actuate's solution for adding web reporting and analytics to Java applications. Actuate's BIRT products let you achieve rapid development, simplified deployment and a rich, interactive user experience.

BIRT is one of the most advanced and widely adopted open source reporting technologies, offering rapid, visual report development that's extensible enough to meet any reporting requirement. Actuate founded and co-sponsors the BIRT project, a top-level project within Eclipse.

Actuate's BIRT product line for adding web reporting to Java applications consists of three primary technologies: Actuate BIRT, iPortal and BusinessReport Studio. These products provide a complete solution for rapid report development, simplified deployment and a rich end user experience.
