Ingres Corporation, a leading business open source database company, announced Ingres Involve, a new program designed to help partners achieve success by easily and cost-effectively integrating Ingres products with their core solution offerings. The new program offers a refreshing approach for embedded and integrator partners to grow margins, reduce total cost of ownership, and build a sustainable business around the open source model.

In the past, partners typically found themselves locked into paying high, up-front licensing fees on top of support and services just for the right to use the database platform for their solution. In addition, the business practices of traditional, closed-sourced vendors has often been fraught with "putting the squeeze" on existing partners at renewal time. With a subscription-based pricing model, Ingres supports pricing transparency, subscription fees payable over time, and no punishment for success at renewal time. As a result, partners are never blindsided at renewal time because, unlike competing database vendors, Ingres is highly transparent and non-competitive.
