REDWOOD CITY, CA, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 - Actian Corporation (formerly Ingres Corp.) today unveiled its strategy to enable companies to develop Action Apps. Action Apps are lightweight, consumer-style applications that automate business actions triggered by real-time changes in data.
"Actian is turning big data into big outcomes for our customers with Action Apps," said Steve Shine. "More than $8 billion a year is spent on business intelligence to generate piles of historical reports and no action. Actian picks up where BI falls short by arming customers to take instant actions the second something changes in their data."
Action Apps will unleash the next level of business innovation and competitive advantage that is currently locked in the endless streams of data flowing through organizations and the industry. Action Apps are easy to build, require no training and provide value far beyond traditional business intelligence applications. Action Apps will be developed, managed and shared on the world's first Cloud Action PlatformTM from Actian.
Developers will be able to use the Cloud Action Platform to create Action Apps in three easy steps:
- Set "Action Probes" to watch and analyze data from a variety of data sources
- Define "Action Triggers" for priority data events and thresholds
- Automatically deliver "Business Actions" when data events occur
