"Actuate (NASDAQ: BIRT) has announced support and services for
Hadoop and MapReduce in the new release of BIRT 3.7, the company's
open-source enterprise business intelligence toolset.
"Hadoop is an open source framework for managing vast amounts of
distributed data (big data) that works in conjunction with
MapReduce, a framework to support distributed computing for large
data sets on hardware clusters.
"The combination of BIRT's open source, flexible approach to
business intelligence and Hadoop's data scalability enables
organizations to build information applications that give the full
range of end users — including business analysts and
non-technical users — valuable insight into data stored in
Hadoop, Acutuate said."
