Informix To Debut Software Suite
Informix Corp. tomorrow will unveil a new business-intelligence software line called Informed Decisions. The
suite marks the company's latest step in a yearlong effort
to revamp its product line to provide database systems for
E-commerce and decision support.
The suite includes the Informix Enterprise Decision Server
8.3 database server with new management features and the
ability to run in clustered environments, and Red Brick
Decision Server 6.0, designed to better support analytical
applications. The suite "will empower our customers to
develop targeted customer-relationship programs to win in
today's Internet economy," says Charles Chang, VP and
general manager of Informix's business intelligence group.
Enterprise Decision Server 8.3 will be available later this
month; Red Brick Decision Server 6.0 will ship next month.
Pricing hasn't been set.
Informix is also putting together packages of analytical
apps targeting vertical industries, including
telecommunications and financial services, and management
areas such as marketing automation. Informix has developed
some of the applications itself; others are from third-party
vendors such as Paragren Technologies Inc. and Cytek
Software Corp. The analytical apps are available now, priced
according to configuration.
