Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ:BIRT), the people behind BIRT® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, today announced that MERETHIS, the company behind the open source monitoring platform Centreon, has extended from Open Source Eclipse BIRT to ActuateOne® to meet its clients’ evolving information visualization and analysis needs.
From open source Eclipse BIRT to ActuateOne
Since its release in 2009, Centreon BI has used open source BIRT from Eclipse. In response to rapidly changing customer requirements for additional BI functionality, including advanced interactive report development and customization tools, MERETHIS decided to upgrade Centreon BI to ActuateOne. ActuateOne provides value added capabilities for BIRT and will enable MERETHIS to offer more innovative, user friendly functionality to its Centreon end users, helping them to become more efficient.
“Centreon BI, now based on ActuateOne, will provide users with interactive viewing and customization functionality, with high usability and interactivity over the web,” commented Julien Mathis, Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer at MERETHIS. “The update is designed to make it easier to build customized operational or analytical dashboards for large data volumes.”
Centreon BI: Optimal Performance for Information Systems
Centreon BI summarizes the changes and trends in information system activity and analyzes the information using packaged templates or customized dashboards, helping businesses to respond appropriately.
“By enhancing Centreon with ActuateOne, organizations can take advantage of a single, integrated tool to monitor network domains, servers and critical business applications, and also generate and disseminate in-depth and modular reports via all channels,” said Mat Sugumaran, Head of MERETHIS’ BI project. “Centreon BI effectively manages information systems by measuring performance using indicators and dashboards.”
“We are excited to add MERETHIS to the growing number of ISVs that are upgrading to ActuateOne after working with open source BIRT,” said David Armstrong, VP of OEM and SaaS at Actuate Corporation. “Actuate’s OEM customers have experienced dramatic increases in adoption of their BIRT-based applications by garnering enthusiastic customer reception to the interactive, highly intuitive interfaces ActuateOne enables. We have no doubt that the market reception for Centreon BI will be positive.”
