Actuate Corporation, The BIRT Company and an Amazon Web Services (AWS) APN Advanced Technology Partner, today announced enhanced options for their customers using Amazon DynamoDB and other AWS services for their high performance, BIRT-based business analytics.
Actuate has created a native connector for Amazon DynamoDB, allowing transfer data from fully managed NoSQL Amazon DynamoDB instances into Big Data analytics applications. The ActuateOne native connector seeks to optimize data processing and data management by way of Amazon DynamoDB's query and filtering capabilities. The connector allows capacity to be dynamically added or removed from a cluster to handle changing application workload requirements. Native support for Amazon DynamoDB’s features, such as binary data types, allows customers to reduce the size of items stored.
“The ActuateOne native connector for DynamoDB provides an additive element to AWS by helping Actuate’s customers reduce the complexity and cost of provisioning, configuring, and operating scalable business intelligence and information applications for traditional and Big Data sources,” said Terry Wise, Head of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS.
“We’re pleased to be providing native support for Amazon DynamoDB. ActuateOne’s advanced visualizations and ability to build, manage and deploy high-scale, intuitive applications on distributed and traditional data sources, results in applications with high end-user adoption,” said Nobby Akiha, SVP of Marketing at Actuate. “High adoption, in turn, fuels additional user population growth and application relevance.”
BIRT onDemand, Actuate’s PaaS solution for Business Intelligence, analytics and visualization, built on the AWS cloud computing platform, looks to provide the flexibility to build custom BIRT-based information applications regardless of use case or industry, making it simple to deploy end user configurable dashboards and in-memory analytics on top of any traditional or distributed data source.
BIRT onDemand subscriptions come pre-configured with data storage using Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and offer the following benefits:
- Publish BIRT-based information applications securely to users outside the firewall;
- Eliminate server management costs and reduce IT involvement by providing an ideal hosted platform for all BIRT applications;
- Enhance existing BIRT applications by adding instant-on interactivity and analysis capabilities;
- Deliver BIRT content to touch devices including iPhone, iPad and Android devices;
- Support for relational, distributed and cloud databases, including DynamoDB.
