Infobright Announces Technology Alliance and Joins Actuate BIRT Global Partner Connection

Integration of Self-Managing Analytic Database With Actuate BIRT Report Studio and Interactive Viewer Provides Solutions That Deliver Cost-Effectiveness and Rich Data Access

TORONTO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, today announced the company has joined the Actuate BIRT Global Partner Connection as a BIRT Business Partner. The collaboration will provide integrated bundles of the companies' products, which include Infobright's self-managing analytic database software and Actuate's value-added offerings for Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT), the leading open source information application development environment and a top-level Eclipse project co-founded and led by Actuate.

"Many BIRT developers need to be able to quickly deploy a data warehouse solution that offers the features and scalability they require without abusing their already tight budgets," said Rich Guth, vice president and general manager, Open Source Strategy Group at Actuate Corporation. "Infobright is a proven solution that, when bundled with Actuate's value-added offerings for BIRT, provides enterprises with rich interactive applications. Such applications are a quick and cost-effective path to achieving an end-to-end business intelligence environment as well as the deep insight companies need into their business."

For rich information application development, Actuate has created a full suite of value-added offerings based on Eclipse BIRT to offer options for creating rich interactive dashboards, mashups and web applications. Joint customers will be able to house Actuate BIRT Report Studio and BIRT Interactive Viewer on Infobright's self-managing analytic database software. Infobright Enterprise Edition (IEE) is the commercial version of Infobright Community Edition (ICE), a freely-available, open source product. Both products are proven alternatives to today's high-cost, high-maintenance data warehouse products.

"We are proud to work with Actuate to market joint offerings that will enable companies to easily implement a feature-rich business intelligence and data warehouse deployment at significant cost savings," said Paul Desjardins, vice president of business development at Infobright. "Combining Infobright's scalable, simple-to-manage and low-cost data warehouse with Actuate's rich, interactive applications for business intelligence environments provides users with greater flexibility and powerful information."

The initial version of Actuate and Infobright's integrated solution is expected to be released in the third quarter of 2009.
