Matisse Ships Matisse 6.0 Database for Object Developers
First Ever SQL-Object programmable data server on the market for
Faster Deployment, High Performance, Reduced Costs
Burlingame, CA - Jan 27, 2003 -Matisse Software Inc. today announced
the immediate availability of Matisse 6.0, database software for object
developers who want to rapidly develop and deploy applications and services
with a lower total cost of ownership and 24x365 reliability.
"For over a decade, Matisse has enabled developers across the world
to implement applications and services that require high performance on
complex data that goes beyond the modeling capabilities of legacy relational
databases." said Didier Cabannes, Matisse's President and CEO. "Our
customers are telling us that with its support for native objects and
key standards like SQL, XML, J2EE and .NET, and low administrative requirements,
Matisse is their database of choice."
Matisse 6.0 has been optimized for pharmaceutical, chemical applications,
life sciences, financial modeling and simulation, industrial control,
and network applications. Matisse was designed to help developers create
applications and services faster, cheaper and more effectively and allow
IT managers to reduce deployment and administration costs.
"We chose Matisse for building the Virtual Laboratory, our collaborative
platform for supporting researchers in their drug discovery experiments,
because it's the only database that met all of our requirements,"
said Pr. Bob Hertzberger from University of Amsterdam. "It is the
only database that is flexible enough to support the complexity associated
with modeling genomic and proteomic experiments, and scalable enough to
support the rapid growth of biological information produced daily. Plus,
Matisse allowed us to leverage existing SQL assets and expertise, which
was critical to getting endorsement from our industrial partners."
Applications and services that include Matisse eliminate the need for
object-relational (O/R) mapping, which is required by all object relational
and relational databases used today.
"In today’s economic climate, the Matisse database should be
on the short list of any object developer creating next generation applications
and services," said Wayne Kernochan, Vice President, Aberdeen Group.
"Matisse provides a lower cost of ownership with high performance,
zero-administration capabilities, and reliability approaching 24x365."
