Digital Equipment Corp has become the first systems manufacturer to sign-up Imformatica Corp’s PowerMart to run on its AlphaServer NT range, which it will use to build and implement data marts. Menlo Park, California-based Informatica said that it’s looking for both departmental and enterprise-wide level business for its product. PowerMart currently runs on NT and Unix servers using Windows 95 and NT clients, and works with all the major databases. It uses graphical tools that are linked to a common metadata repository to populate enterprise-scaleable data marts. PowerMart, claims Imformatica, can be used without the need for the expensive supporting consultancy services that some of its competitors are shackled with, and comes with an automated installation process. The two companies first struck a reseller agreement last September to deliver a system for building and managing enterprise-scaleable data marts for under $100,000. The PowerMart suite starts at $45,000 for a single data source and target.
