OSBC, San Francisco, CA, USA - March 25th, 2008 – Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, Italy's leading IT services company and Ingres Corporation, a leading provider of open source database management software, announced today the completion of a technological partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, SpagoBI and Ingres have certified each other's products in order to strengthen their open source business intelligence solutions at the enterprise level.

Besides satisfying the traditional analysis requirements (reporting, multidimensional analysis - OLAP -, dashboard, data mining, free inquiry) SpagoBI develops original modules specifically oriented to support collaboration between users and the enrichment of information (geo-referenced analysis, graphical presentation, analytical dossier, free notes). With its modular approach and with open standard adoption, users can create a flexible and practical business intelligence platform that meets their specific needs.

"This partnership opens new perspectives for both Ingres and SpagoBI" said Grazia Cazzin, SpagoBI team leader "By using SpagoBI, users of Ingres will increase their OS stack with a certified environment. On the other side, Ingres could be a new opportunity for SpagoBI's users who want to evaluate and adopt a strong open source database. Collaboration in certifying the shared environment is just the first step".

"This collaboration will go beyond enforcing Engineering's role in promoting and supporting open source solutions in the Italian and wider European markets and will extend to the database domain", stated Gabriele Ruffatti, Architectures & Consulting Director in Engineering's Research & Innovation Division.

"Ingres is pleased to partner with Spago BI to collaborate on new open source services and solutions for business intelligence" said Fred Gallagher, vice president of business development for Ingres.
