Through its acquisition frenzy, Platinum Technology Inc has been busy building its POEMS Platinum Open Enterprise Management System into a recognisable offering and reckons that with the client-server edition of its mainframe data repository, Platinum Repository/Open Enterprise Edition (CI No 2,772), a critical part of the structure that makes up the system is now in place. The Platinum Repository/Open Enterprise Edition toolset, son of its Brownstone Data Dictionary/Solution and RelTech Group Inc DB/Excel acquisitions (CI Nos 2,608, 2,640), comes in where CA-Unicenter and Tivoli Mnagament Envrionment cannot play, the company claims, providing a repository for data warehousing and systems management. Warehousing and systems management require data management and access and a repository to store components. What makes Platinum Repository/Open Enterprise Edition different from other offerings, the company claims, are tools that can access and manipulate data, as well as storing it like most other repositories. Add-on tools such as InfoRefiner extract sequential data from legacy systems and convert it into relational database formats. PR/OEE is available for use with all Platinum Open Enterprise Management System elements, which include other application development and database tools. The repository starts at $50,000 and is up under AIX, HP-UX and Solaris running Oracle and Sybase SQL Server 10. It will be available in the first quarter of 1996. With Platinum Repository/Open Enterprise Edition data repository in place, the company said it is winning the battle to integrate its myriad acquisitions – some 14 over the last year. It plans to integrate the 25 products it has via a common messaging layer called Oasis, supporting Remote Procedure Calls, TCP/IP and SmartSockets, a WinSock-type protocol to connect Unix, MVS, VMS, AS/400, NetWare and NT, as well as a series of event managers components due in the first quarter of next year. Platinum is also working on support for Informix DSA, Dynamic Scalable Architecure.
