Digital Equipment Corp has added another building block to its burgeoning client-server strategy by consolidating its data management technology. The firm has signed with Prism Solutions Inc to distribute its Prism Warehouse Manager product with its own Accessworks database access servers. Prism will act as a central hub for data, pulling it from disparate data sources into a central database management system of user choice which can then be used for data modelling and verifying. DEC’s Group Marketing Manager for Business Critical Client Server Computing Steven Keonig sees the tool primarily as a means to create Executive or Enterprise Information Systems. The Prism system currently runs under DEC’s OpemVMS operating system, and there have been no discussions to convert it for OSF/1. As part of the client-server system, it will help lend a market presence to the Alpha processor, hinted Koenig, who said It demostrates the value of the scalability of the Alpha platform. Prism Warehouse Manager costs $95,000 on average with DEC RMS source files and Sybase as the target data warehouse system on DEC Accessworks servers. Additional source modules cost $20,000 each.
