A small Edinburgh, UK-based data mining company has signed an agreement with Sequent Computer Systems Inc to run its interactive data mining software on Sequent’s Symmetry 5000 and Numa-Q 2000 servers. Quadstone Ltd, established in March 1995 and now employing 35 people will be able to propel its business data analysis tool, Decisionhouse into the world-wide market. Decisionhouse is said to transform a data warehouse into a scaleable decision support system, offering interactive database segmentation, customer profiling and scalability for business modelling. The agreement came about after the two companies discovered they were selling to the same customers. Sequent had been looking for a software company that had the capability to provide a data mining product for larger data warehousing products for some time, and first approached Quadstone around five months ago.
