SAN MATEO, Calif. -- March 12, 2013
Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company^™ – delivering more
insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced their
participation in the annual Evans Developer Relations Conference. Presenting
for the third year in a row, Nobby Akiha, SVP of Marketing for Actuate, and
Ray Gans, Community Manager for BIRT-Exchange.org, will demonstrate how
Actuate is working with the most active developers in the BIRT community to
reward their efforts and drive community advocacy.
“Whether they are using open source BIRT or ActuateOne^® – the BIRT-based
suite of commercial products for development and deployment of custom
analytics applications – our developers have invaluable knowledge and
influence that supports the community development efforts,” said Akiha. “By
recognizing and rewarding our developers’ willingness to ‘spread the word’ in
the physical and virtual spaces where they hang out, we gain influence and
insights into conversations we otherwise never could achieve.”
The Developer Relations Conference features presentations from developer
relations experts in leading software, telecom and web companies. The event
showcases the latest survey data on developers' technology adoption, views on
program features and adoption, development preferences and “wish lists” on
topics such as Cloud, mobile development and embedded systems.
During the past two years the audience for Actuate’s presentations at this
conference has included community managers, developer relations managers,
evangelism managers, developer event planners, and senior executives
responsible for developer programs.
