Ontos Inc is due to announce its first product based on the Object Cohesive Enterprise architecture in about two weeks’ time. Open Storage Management is a class library that enables third party vendors to integrate Ontos DB with ordinary relational databases by mapping them schematically. The Burlington, Massachusetts-based company will also come out with the latest release of its Ontos DB object-oriented database and application development environment at the end of the month. Meanwhile, Ontos denies rumours flying around that it will close its UK operations – as the firm’s only subsidiary, it says the office is pivotal to its international strategy. The UK acts as its European headquarters and support centre for its network of distributors.
