IBM Vouches for Venetica
The point is to optimize data centers and business processes by organizing files such as multimedia, images, documents, and anything else that doesn't fit neatly in the rows and columns of a traditional database table. IBM will merge the technology into the DB2 database suite and the WebSphere servers.
"It's enabling us to address a growing need of our customers," spokeswoman Lori Friedman says. IBM already has a tool called DB2 Information Integrator, but Venetica helps expand that to manage non-IBM content, she explains.
The integration between Venetica's software, DB2, and WebSphere will occur by the end of this year, according to Friedman. It will be simpler than most acquisition integrations, she notes, because much of the heavy lifting was already done as part of the two companies' existing partnership.
Specifically, Venetica makes three products -- VeniceBridge, for organizing unorganized data; Content Bridges, which help organize workflows; and Application Integrations, which link to external software.
