WebSphere Information Integrator has been certified by MicroStrategy to interoperate with MicroStrategy 8. This new interoperability brings together the latest of these two technologies and serves as another milestone in the long-standing relationship between IBM and MicroStrategy.

The combination of MicroStrategy and IBM WebSphere Information Integrator technology enables companies to seamlessly derive critical business insights from multiple, heterogeneous data sources. MicroStrategy's integrated reporting, analysis, and monitoring software allows organizations to tap into their many databases to gain visibility into their operations and uncover detailed information for better decision making. IBM WebSphere Information Integrator allows users to access diverse and distributed information, as if it were in one system, through a single SQL query. This provides customers with a single, consolidated view into information from disparate sources, including distributed and mainframe databases, enterprise applications, XML documents, files and content repositories.

"IBM's WebSphere Information Integrator provides breakthrough productivity, flexibility, and performance, enabling companies to aggregate information from multiple data sources, giving them a holistic view of their operations," said Pete Fiore, vice president, IBM Information Integration Solutions. "This, combined with the power of business intelligence, is helping our joint customers derive new value from their information and leverage it for greater business insight."

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with IBM and provide complementary technology that allows our customers to manage their data more efficiently and gain real-time insights to improve business performance," said MicroStrategy COO, Sanju Bansal. " By collaborating with IBM for EII capabilities, we can remain focused on meeting our customers' sophisticated BI requirements, while offering seamless access to high quality data integration and data management capabilities."
