Business Intelligence Appliance by Ingres

Aug 27, 2007

Ingres has launched a software appliance that combines Ingres's own Icebreaker database and Jaspersoft's Business Intelligence Software (BI) with Linux.

The vendor offers a preconfigured suite of Open Source software solutions for management and analysis of business processes under the name of Ingres Icebreaker BI Appliance . The Open Source Jaspersoft BI software provides a basis for reporting and analysis functionality. The integrated BI solution is in line with Ingres Software's goals of reducing business intelligence overheads by providing a single source for administration and maintenance. The all-in-one package includes a single step installer. Database vendor Ingres offers support and maintenance for the Open Source software on the basis of annual subscriptions for 35,000 euros for a single computer with two CPUs.

Ingres presented its own Icebreaker database with rPath Linux operating system in February. Ingres aims to facilitate the installation and administration of with what is the first product by the company since it was launched as a spin-off by Computer Associates, thus reducing support and running costs. Ingres's other targets were to include third-party applications with business intelligence and reporting functions at the top of the wish list.
