Epsilon, a leading relationship marketing company, further cemented its technology leadership position by announcing two recent achievements - the launch of Technology in Play, a center for database marketing innovation, and the retirement of its mainframe-based computing platform through its completed conversion to a fully open-systems operating environment.

Epsilon's completed conversion to a fully open-systems computing environment provides clients with flexible access to a best-in-class fabric of marketing infrastructure and tools for database management, business intelligence, analytic processing and multichannel campaign management.  The highly scalable architecture offers hosted database clients even greater performance, flexibility and data access for planning, deploying and optimizing integrated marketing programs.  Since retiring its mainframe, Epsilon believes it is the largest database marketing services firm in the industry operating solely on open-systems platforms, ranging from data hygiene and processing to databases utilizing industry standard relational database systems on open and open-source platforms to massively parallel processing platforms leveraging innovative database appliance technology.

Technology in Play, Epsilon's center for database marketing innovation, enables Epsilon clients and prospects to prototype, experiment and test advanced database marketing tools and platforms, learn how to leverage best practices and work closely with Epsilon to design solutions with the specific combination of technologies that best support their targeted marketing objectives.
