Quiterian’s technology is applicable to every one of our customer’s business intelligence, performance analytics and customer communication management deployments and it is going to generate a lot of interest.”

Josep Arroyo added: “Actuate and Quiterian share common values, common approaches and a common vision to deliver insights and we look forward to the next chapter of realising this vision with BIRT Analytics.”
