In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Actuate Joins Eclipse Board as a Strategic Developer
Actuate Joins Eclipse Board as a Strategic Developer

"We are thrilled to welcome Actuate as an Eclipse Strategic Developer," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation Inc as he announced today that San Francisco-based Enterprise Reporting Applications specialist Actuate Corporation has become a Board Member for the Eclipse Community, joining existing Strategic Developers IBM Corporation, Intel, and QNX Software Systems Limited.

"We are pleased that Actuate has given the Eclipse open-source community the opportunity to leverage the company's expertise and leadership in enterprise reporting technology," Milinkovich continued - a reference to Actuate's world leadership in Enterprise Reporting Applications.

"Actuate's participation will further the Eclipse open-source project and contribute to the expansion of the Eclipse ecosystem so that it remains a nucleus for innovation in the software industry," Milinkovich said.

Mark Coggins, senior VP of Engineering at Actuate Corporation, revealed some his company's immediate plans in its new leadership role within the Eclipse community:

"Actuate is honored to play a stewardship role within Eclipse, the most broadly adopted universal platform for tools integration. We look forward to collaborating with the Eclipse community to create BIRT, a reporting and analysis tool to be developed following the open-source principles of transparency and meritocracy, where the best ideas and methods will be incorporated. It is our goal that this project will address the evolving needs of the open-source development community and we welcome the community's feedback and comment over the next 30 days, and beyond."

Founded in 1993, headquartered in South San Francisco and with offices worldwide, Actuate's business intelligence products would represent a welcome broadening of the Eclipse platform, said fellow Board member Dan Dodge, president and CEO of QNX Software Systems.

"We applaud Actuate's decision to offer their expertise and resources to Eclipse and to join QNX, Intel, and IBM as a Strategic Developer," Dodge declared. "Actuate's efforts to broaden the spectrum of tools and technologies available on the Eclipse platform to include business intelligence and reporting will enhance productivity and help span all levels of application development."

Analysts are agreed that this announcement indicates a recognition that reporting and analysis are key functions of every enterprise and customer-facing application, and so represent a very important functionality. Currently it is build into applications by hand coding Java Server Pages (JSP) and there is a general sense that application developers would benefit from open-source technology in this area.

The approval and adoption of the BIRT project by the open-source community, in particular, will provide developers with access to tools that can help decrease development costs related to business intelligence and reporting. The hope is that this will in turn increase innovation in this area.

As Coggins indicated, BIRT will be available on the Eclipse Foundation Web site for public review and comment over the next 30 days:
