Actuate’s ActuateOne Platform Based on BIRT Now Certified on CDH4 (Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop Version 4)

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced that ActuateOne® is now certified on CDH4 (Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop Version 4). ActuateOne is a BI platform and suite of interactive applications, based on BIRT, that enable developers and end users to create and customize analysis and visualizations of traditional and Big Data from virtually any source.

ActuateOne’s flexible approach to connect to and merge an array of Big Data sources, combined with Hadoop’s data scalability, enables organizations to build information applications that facilitate more effective and collaborative decision making. CDH is a 100-percent open source distribution that combines Apache Hadoop with other open source applications within the Hadoop stack to deliver advanced, enterprise-grade features, and is the world’s most widely deployed distribution of Apache Hadoop in commercial and non-commercial environments. Through its integration with CDH, ActuateOne now makes it easier for organizations to attain value from Big Data – data that is too large to manage using existing database management tools – whether that data is structured, unstructured, device- or activity-generated – for example data from social networks.

“Actuate’s goal is to support our customers’ needs for Big Data architecture – from accessing, to visualizing and analyzing, to operationalizing data for insights that can improve any organization’s bottom line,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Actuate. “We are pleased that, as a Cloudera Certified Technology, Actuate can provide best-in-class support to the two million BIRT developers worldwide who can use ActuateOne and CDH4 to develop analysis and visualization applications.”

Actuate also announced that it has joined the Cloudera Certified Technology program, which makes it simpler for Apache Hadoop technology buyers to purchase the right cluster components and software applications to extract the most value from their data. Clusters that leverage CDH4 alongside Cloudera Certified Technologies like ActuateOne operate with reduced risk and lower total cost of ownership. Cloudera Certified Technologies have been tested and validated to use supported APIs and to comply with Cloudera development guidelines for integration with Apache Hadoop.

“Building a Hadoop cluster from the ground up can be challenging. There are numerous choices to be made at all levels of the stack, and making those choices can be very complicated. The Cloudera Certified Technology program is designed to make those choices easy and reliable,” said Tim Stevens, Vice President of Corporate and Business Development at Cloudera. “We’re committed to helping enterprises achieve the most from their Big Data initiatives, and we’re pleased that Actuate has completed its certification of ActuateOne on CDH4.”

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently.

Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing perf...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
