Results of a benchmark test conducted at the IBM Innovation Center, reaffirmed Actuate as the industry’s highest performing and most scalable platform for generating information applications.


The tests focused on the collaborative reporting capabilities of Actuate iServer 9, which is based on Eclipse BIRT, the Eclipse Foundation’s open source Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools project, initiated and co-led by Actuate.
