Actuate Corporation, a leader in enterprise reporting applications, announced Actuate 8 - a real-time enterprise reporting application platform with integrated enterprise information integration (EII).The on-demand data access capabilities of EII in combination with the new version of Actuate's enterprise reporting application platform allow organizations to gain real-time operational visibility, improve customer profitability and distribute accountability throughout the organization.

Actuate leverages EII technology that the company acquired through its acquisition of Nimble Technology to provide the ability to deliver dynamic information to all users in the formats they expect - dashboards for executives and line managers, real-time Web reports for customer service employees, spreadsheets for sales representatives and finance professionals, and personalized cubes for business analysts. Actuate 8 extends the data warehouse by providing users with on-demand access to information integrated from varied and disparate sources including ERP and CRM applications, data warehouses, legacy systems as well as XML and ODBC-based data sources.

Actuate 8 includes a unified meta data layer which improves the overall accuracy of information analysis and is accessible by all products within Actuate's platform. In addition, Actuate provides organizations with a server-managed spreadsheet solution, which has been enhanced in Actuate 8 to include PivotTables, data filters and other Excel functionality, thereby meeting business users' need for the ease of use of Excel while maintaining "one version of the truth."
