Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTU), the people behind BIRT ®, today announced that Xenos Enterprise Server™ stole the show at last week’s 2010 Document Management Industry Awards scooping the much coveted Software Product of the Year award.

At a packed industry ceremony held at the Tower Hotel, London – Xenos Enterprise Server fought off competition from a shortlist of a dozen or more fellow document and content management vendors to take the top software prize. In just four years the DM Awards have become a much anticipated annual event for DM professionals, and an opportunity to highlight industry success stories from the past year, from products and solutions through to major projects.

The DM Awards are voted for by the readers of Document Manager Magazine and are designed to reward the outstanding products, suppliers and projects of the year. Despite the economic downturn, this year’s event proved as popular as ever and attracted both an unprecedented number of reader votes and attendees.

Xenos Enterprise Server simplifies the challenge of designing integrated business information architecture and process flows for both structured and unstructured data. Xenos ES delivers organisational control over all data and document transformation from a centralised location within the enterprise. This improves operational efficiency, enhances business processes, reduces risk for compliance management and increases employee productivity with lowered total-cost-of-ownership both for the enterprise and for its customers.

Jeff Mills is General Manager, Actuate Northern Europe and comments, “We are honoured to be awarded this Oscar of the Document Management industry. To have Xenos Enterprise Server named ‘Software Product of the Year’ is testament to our relentless focus on quality information solutions that simplify structured and unstructured data flows. That coupled with exemplary customer service have kept us a step ahead of the competition.” Jeff continues, “This award is voted for by thousands of end-users making it even more special and humbling to receive.”
