ACTUATE HAS ADDED Mac and Android Wear to its existing BIRT embedded analytics offerings.
The company, which moved to a freemium model this summer, was on hand in London today to demonstrate how organisations could send alerts to Android Wear devices when thresholds were reached with a micro version of its online dashboard available on the watch screen.
The company launched two new products at the swanky do, BIRT iHub 3.1 and BIRT Analytics 5.0.
BIRT Analytics is the back end, which allows customers to set up a system-as-a-server analysing billions of rows of data in seconds across Windows, and now Linux and Mac OS, and offer it up to an open API.
BIRT iHub is the optional front end that turns that data into information with value-added visual representations in the form of charts and spreadsheets viewable across desktop, tablet, mobile and wearable devices.
"Organisations require intelligence from their data to make better, faster business decisions, which is not possible using traditional business intelligence tools," said Pete Cittadini, president and CEO of Actuate.
"The enhanced features in our embedded analytics solution - BIRT iHub and BIRT Analytics - help customers turn data into intelligence embedded within an application for real-time analysis and actionable visualisation on any device."
Both products will be available before the end of the year. Actuate believes that the open platform coupled with the new features, including the new REST API, can cut the time taken to make data into usable information from days to hours. µ
