Actuate Corporation, a provider of enterprise reporting and performance management applications and an IBM Premier Partner, announced its acceptance to the IBM SOA Specialty after successfully completing IBM's rigorous SOA technical and business requirements. With this achievement, the Actuate platform integrates with the IBM SOA Foundation, a single, integrated platform that combines the industry's top application server and integration capabilities. Customers of IBM and Actuate can now take advantage of a common approach to Service-Oriented Architecture to rapidly integrate business intelligence and performance management capabilities into applications to support the complete spectrum of business processes.

Acceptance into the IBM SOA Specialty is for Business Partners that have demonstrated compatibility with IBM SOA Foundation products, endorse the IBM SOA strategy, and whose go-to-market activities IBM determines to be in agreement with its own. Actuate has been working closely with IBM to achieve a high level of business and technical alignment and as a result, has become the first partner to achieve all levels of SOA Specialty certification - Connect, Extend and Exploit. This means that Actuate is certified by IBM to be able to connect, extend and exploit the IBM SOA Foundation products including the WebSphere Business Modeler, WebSphere Integration Developer, and WebSphere Process Server. Specifically, Actuate exploits the SOA Foundation by building reusable components within the WebSphere Integration Developer, deployed on the WebSphere Process Server to communicate with applications using the WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.
