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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...
