Ingres Signs Global Partner Agreement with MicroStrategy

Ingres, pioneers of the breakthrough analytic database VectorWise, today announced that they have signed a global partner agreement with MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq:MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software. In addition, the VectorWise analytic database has passed MicroStrategy’s comprehensive test suite, certifying it as a supported database for the MicroStrategy platform.

As part of the newly established partnership agreement, the two companies are collaborating to launch Performance2 (Performance Squared), an initiative which offers high performing and affordable analytics that enable organizations to divert investment from expensive back-end data infrastructure to front-line business users. MicroStrategy with VectorWise allows companies to deploy more BI to more people by shifting data storage to the cloud, reducing costs and offering insights to business users on any mobile device. VectorWise’s record breaking price performance will enable joint clients to implement this infrastructure at significantly less cost than existing options.

“We are pleased with Ingres’ official certification as a MicroStrategy partner,” said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy Chief Operating Officer. “MicroStrategy’s mobile platform enables organizations to build a wide variety of mobile apps that deliver business intelligence, transactions, and exciting multimedia content. Together with Ingres, our customers can run intuitive reports and dashboards, and act quickly on data stored across their enterprise with next-generation mobile apps that speed their businesses forward.”

“The demand for BI systems with faster data access continues to grow and requires dramatically more efficient technology,” said Terry Garnett, Chief Executive Officer at Ingres. “VectorWise is the first analytic database to exploit the power of the modern chip to deliver record breaking performance. When you combine that performance with MicroStrategy’s BI platform, you get a powerful solution that allows companies to achieve insights faster than ever before wherever they are. I believe this is an essential step in redefining how people work today.”

VectorWise, a record breaking database for interactive reporting, unlocks the power of modern commodity CPUs with a database engine that leverages vector-based processing and on-chip memory to provide dramatic performance gains over other databases. No other database enables faster performance without the requirement of more hardware or extensive tuning. Customers and partners have reported 10-70X improvements.

Mobile BI has evolved from basic reports and dashboards on a mobile device to action-enabled apps that change the way companies do business and the way people work. A leader in mobile intelligence, MicroStrategy provides a powerful platform to build enterprise and consumer mobile apps. To highlight the power of mobile BI, Ingres will showcase a hosted 5 terabyte demo on the iPad at MicroStrategy World 2011, being held in Monte Carlo.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises.

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
