CenterBoard, the Virtual ODS company, debuted the CenterBoard Integrator, a network-based virtual operational data store (Virtual ODS) that delivers right-time access to information across and beyond the enterprise as if it were a single database, without copying data. Augmenting the traditional data storage methodologies of the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and operational data store (ODS) noted in Bill Inmon's Corporate Information Factory, CenterBoard Integrator saves customers as much as 90 percent of the cost and time of these alternative solutions by eliminating the need to copy and move data. Cost savings also come in the form of reduced integration engineering time, and hardware and software costs.

CenterBoard Integrator is a solution that fuses networking paradigms with database technology to provide a scalable, intelligent and easily configurable virtual ODS. Emerging from work originally deployed for a U.S. Army Command and Control application, with six patents pending, CenterBoard's Virtual ODS enables users to launch queries over the net from any application that generates SQL or XML queries. Through the use of compact content-based bit vectors, queries are routed automatically only to those data sources where relevant data is stored. Secure and accurate result sets are then returned to users in right time. And adding a new data source to the network is as easy as attaching a computer to a network. 

CenterBoard Integrator is an all software solution that runs on lightweight Intel hardware platforms (supports Windows and Linux). It fits seamlessly between distributed, heterogeneous data sources and front-end tools and applications. CenterBoard Integrator results in customer benefits such as instant attach, networked scalability, quick queries, seamless integration and secure access.

CenterBoard is also unveiling its CenterPoint Partner Program for systems integrators (SIs) and ISVs, and CenterBoard Integrator is now available from the company's SI partners.
