    • Analysts Support for the Actian Movement“The accelerating pace of business and increasing pressures for better customerservice and lower costs are making event-driven activities more important inalmost every industry.” Executives have lots of information, but they dont knowwhen to take action and what action to take," “Actian seeks acquisitions, partnerships for actionable BI” “Decision making in Global 2000 companies is paralyzed with “data-waiting”… …This creates an action-deficit resulting in missed opportunities to monetize trends, or worse, creates unnecessary risk that could have been avoided by immediate action.” © 2011 Actian Corporation 22
