Actuate Steering The Future Of Spatial Technology As Eclipse LocationTech Industry Working Group Founding Member

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced it has lent its considerable expertise in developing viable, highly adopted open source technology to the Eclipse LocationTech Industry Working Group.

Actuate, which founded the popular BIRT project within Eclipse in 2004, recognizes the intersection between the exponential growth in data volumes and the requirement to harness and distill that data for consumption via touch devices. The next step in the progression is certainly location-based technology. LocationTech will be the leading community for individuals and organizations to collaborate on commercially-friendly open source software that is location aware.

“Being part of LocationTech is a natural fit for Actuate and for BIRT,” said Jason Weathersby, Director of Evangelism and Community Development at Actuate. “We've seen the BIRT community grow to over 2 million developers globally and raised the standard of open source technology for data visualization. We believe that LocationTech will change the game for location aware software development in a similar way, by delivering value to developers and corporations who are increasingly turning to open source software as the indicator of future standards.”
