PRLog - March 9, 2012 - REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- CeBIT, Hanover, Germany – March 8th, 2012 – Actian Corporation today announced that it has signed a strategic partner agreement with Viada GmbH & Co. KG, an IT service provider that offers custom made software development and project implementation. In addition to designing and developing Java Enterprise based IT solutions, Viada will now offer Actian Vectorwise and the company’s data warehouse and management and business intelligence (BI) capabilities as part of its portfolio. The foundation of this agreement is the collaboration that both companies have with Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions.
Based in Dortmund (Germany), Viada designs and implements customer-specific software solutions across a wide range of industries. For the optimum implementation of its software solutions, Viada specializes in technologies such as application servers, workflow management systems, business rules management systems, portal servers and high availability clustering, using JBoss Enterprise Middleware, a leading software solution from Red Hat, for mission-critical applications in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The partnership with Actian strengthens Viada’s IT portfolio with the industry’s fastest and most cost-effective analytic database engine, Vectorwise and allows Viada to meet the rising demand for tailored data warehouse and management solutions. With Vectorwise, Viada is perfectly placed to meet the needs of organizations that have not previously used a database management and analytics system.
Actian’s collaboration with Red Hat, signed in 2008, is at the heart of Viada’s decision to select Actian’s turbo-charged data analytics technology. As Viada is a Red Hat Premier Business Partner and winner of the “EMEA Middleware Partner of the Year 2010” award, it had already seen the power of Actian’s cost effective and performance fueled database technology.
“As a result of the long-term relationship between Actian and Red Hat, we were familiar with Actian’s cutting-edge analytic database, Vectorwise” says Daniel Braunsdorf, Managing Director of Viada GmbH & Co. KG. “The agreement with Actian will strengthen our offering in data warehouse and BI space and we are delighted to partner with an exciting player in the field.”
“Actian’s collaboration with Red Hat is key to Viada’s decision to select our technology as part of its portfolio. In turn, we expect the new strategic agreement with Viada to further strengthen our cooperation with Red Hat,” commented Olaf Laber, Director Business Development at Actian. “Viada’s customers can now reap the advantages that the world’s fastest and most cost-effective analytic database, Vectorwise, has to offer in generating instantaneous reports and business insight.”
