SAN MATEO, Calif. -- February 19, 2013

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more
insights to more people than all BI companies combined, today announced that
many federal agencies use open source BIRT to build their BI applications. In
addition, an increasing number of government organizations are using
BIRT-based ActuateOne^® to create business analytics, data visualization and
performance analytics solutions that deliver valuable insights to better serve
citizens and constituents. Actuate will conduct a workshop at the event, and
will demonstrate its Big Data visualization and analysis capabilities and
discuss best practices at the Big Data for Defense and Government Conference
on February 25-27, 2013 in Alexandria, Virginia.

Government agencies using open source BIRT and/or ActuateOne include the
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); Department of Labor; US Patent &
Trademark Office (US PTO); Equal Employment Opportunity Corporation (EEOC); US
Army, Navy and Air Force; the Department of Defense (DOD) including the
Pentagon, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and several Intelligence
Agencies; the Department of Homeland Security; and the Department of Energy
(DOE) including several of the DOE Labs. Additionally, the National Institutes
of Health (NIH) utilize ActuateOne for their mission critical needs.

Realizing the potential in Big Data, the U.S. Government has launched a
long-term Big Data Initiative which will assign more than $250 million a year
to its federal agencies. The goal of the initiative is to deliver better BI
solutions for faster Big Data organization, visualization and analysis, to
enable more effective decision making that will better serve and protect
citizens. By allowing Government IT departments to transform large data sets
into visual, actionable intelligence, BIRT and ActuateOne – Actuate’s
BIRT-based suite of commercial products – can make key contributions to this

“As the Federal Government’s Big Data initiative develops, its IT officers
will need to find ways to accelerate time to insight for government decision
makers as well as providing relevant and useful information to citizens,” said
Nobby Akiha, SVP of Marketing at Actuate. “By offering a robust combination of
analysis and visualization capabilities, with unlimited device delivery
options, ActuateOne empowers government agencies to better perform both
operationally and strategically.”

ActuateOne enables government IT departments to visualize and analyze data
from virtually any Big Data source of any size or complexity, either alone or

ActuateOne deploys in any environment – on premise and in private- or public
