Ingres Corporation, a leading enterprise open source database company, and GoldenGate Software Inc., a leading provider of transactional data management solutions, announced a strategic partnership to offer enterprise customers real-time business intelligence and zero downtime migrations from proprietary databases to Ingres' open source platform. Customers running mission-critical applications with high volume transactions will benefit from cost savings and improved service levels associated with moving to a more flexible and affordable open source database alternative.

By deploying GoldenGate's real-time data integration solution on the Ingres open source platform, customers will be able to leverage a lower cost option and perform smooth application and system migrations without interruption. Customers will also be able to provide the freshest possible data transactions to reporting and analytics applications running on Ingres, enabling them to deliver accurate, timely business decisions.

In health care organizations, for example, this translates into seamless application upgrades and real-time integration of critical patient data, where inaccurate or old data could mean the difference between life and death. Financial services organizations can leverage the solution to meet increasingly stringent compliance regulations and service level agreements, and to achieve real-time business intelligence. As more and more organizations recognize the cost and flexibility benefits of enterprise open source, GoldenGate and Ingres will now offer a comprehensive solution for these and a variety of other business initiatives.

Ingres will resell GoldenGate Software technology with the Ingres relational database on a worldwide basis. Customers interested in real-time business intelligence solutions and seamless workload migrations from expensive proprietary database environments to Ingres, can get started by contacting Ingres at (877) 346-4737 or today. This announcement is the first step in an ongoing alliance between Ingres and GoldenGate. The companies are making joint development investments in additional capabilities that extend continuous operations and real-time data integration capabilities for the Ingres open-source environment.
