TORONTO, Canada - October 7, 2008 - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, and OpenBI, LLC, a uniquely-focused open source business intelligence (OSBI) services firm, today announced an alliance that combines OpenBI's business intelligence (BI) expertise with Infobright's leading data warehousing technology. The partnership completes the open source ecosystem, adding Infobright to OpenBI's roster of partners, including leading open source BI companies such as Jaspersoft and Pentaho.
"The interest in open source BI continues to grow dramatically, and our partnership with Infobright satisfies the need for a high-end, open source data warehouse and analytics platform," said Steve Miller, president of OpenBI. "With the help of Infobright and OpenBI, small and medium businesses can now confidently deploy the most cost-effective data warehouse, and quickly turn large amounts of business data into actionable intelligence."
A proven alternative to today's high-cost, high-maintenance data warehouse products, Infobright combines the industry's lowest total cost of ownership with unmatched operational simplicity. Infobright solutions reduce typical implementation and ongoing management costs by up to 90 percent. Support for up to 30 TB of data with a single, industry-standard server also reduces hardware needs, and integration with Sun Microsystems' MySQL database enables seamless use of the mature connectors, tools and resources associated with the most widely-deployed open source database.
OpenBI offers best practice data warehouse integration, analytics and performance management services, ensuring organizations maximum benefits from their data warehouse deployment. Starting with an understanding of a client's business drivers, decision processes and performance metrics, OpenBI develops the plan to integrate Infobright with BI and ETL tools, then provides the development and integration assistance needed to deliver a flexible and scalable deployment. OpenBI and Infobright currently have open source partnerships with Jaspersoft and Pentaho for BI, and with MySQL for database integration.
