NoSQL Now! Conference Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined; and VoltDB, the leading provider of ultra-high-throughput relational database systems (RDBMSs); today announced an alliance that will enable VoltDB and ActuateOne® customers to more quickly and effectively process their Big Data and operationalize the resulting insights. VoltDB is a NewSQL database system designed for organizations that have reached the price/performance limitations of SQL databases. Processing at speeds from 45 to 100 times faster than traditional databases, VoltDB excels at handling high-speed data applications. It can augment Big Data storage by helping to make inexpensive virtualized computing infrastructures – including Cloud service platforms – work better for companies handling high velocity transactional data feeds, including log/event data, market data feeds, and social media feeds. ActuateOne – a suite of interactive applications and a development and deployment platform built on BIRT – gives enterprises the tools they need to create and deploy custom business intelligence and information applications that users want, with the intuitive, interactive experience that they expect. The operational dashboard and analytics features of ActuateOne are especially appealing to customers using VoltDB, because they combine real-time data feeds with historical data, allowing clients to see the aggregation of trends, track data and demonstrate emerging themes that erupt in real time. “Together, VoltDB offers lightning-speed transaction processing and ActuateOne enables real-time analysis and visualization without the need for pre-processing. The combination can dramatically speed the time from Big Data access to operationalized insights that can improve the bottom line in any organization,” said Sam Berg, VP of Field Operations for VoltDB. “The ability to effectively tap Big Data’s potential starts with choosing the right tools for the entire process, from organizing to visualizing to operationalizing Big Data," said Nobby Akiha, Vice President of Marketing for Actuate. "By reducing the processing time through use of a VoltDB database management system, ActuateOne can deliver customized visualizations and game-changing insights much faster."
