Ardent Software Unveils Strategy to Bridge Worlds of Structured and Unstructured Information

  By Rachel Rasmussen

Westboro, Mass., Sept. 20, 1999 - Ardent Software, Inc. announced a new strategic initiative designed to allow organizations to deploy a single enterprise information infrastructure (EII) to support a wide variety of strategic solutions, including e-business, analytical applications and enterprise information portals. The EII initiative builds upon Ardent's existing strength in structured data integration, is a direct response to the growing need to include unstructured information sources and provides a uniform, enterprise-wide approach to information integration across data, applications and processes.

Ardent will deliver its EII solutions in several phases. The first solution is the DataStage Suite for Business Information Infrastructure (BII), which was announced on Sept. 20, 1999. In the second phase, Ardent will Web-enable enterprise access to the business and technical meta data provided by its BII, delivering broader access to reports, associated meta data and related unstructured data such as spreadsheets, presentations and other content. In the third phase, Ardent plans to deliver the essential foundation for an enterprise portal, which will incorporate an integration layer that unifies related content from both structured and unstructured sources.
