Roslyn Heights, N.Y., June 28, 2000 – QueryObject Systems Corporation announced at DCI's Data Warehouse World, the North American launch of a full- scale, market-testing program for QueryObject System v4.0. This new QueryObject Distributed Replication Server permits on-demand streaming of analytical data over the Internet to Business Intelligence (BI) client tools.

The open beta program – for users of BrioQuery from BrioTechnology, Business Objects, Improptu from Cognos, BIQuery from Hummingbird, and other open ODBC tools such as Microsoft MSQuery – allows users to access QueryObject DataMarts on a protected Web site. Users then pull extracts of that data over the Internet, cache it and analyze it locally using the client-side tools that they currently own. In the past, these tools were excluded from Internet-based analysis because they were designed to work only with local or client-server data sources.

"Following the European open beta launched two weeks ago in London, this represents a full-fledged market test of breakthrough, patent-pending Internet infrastructure technology," said QueryObject CEO Robert Thompson. "The dominant architecture for Internet business intelligence assumes that the data and analysis processes are server-based, and only the display context is local to the user. QueryObject v4.0 distributed replication technology, in effect, Internet-enables the data so that it can be streamed via the Internet to local tools for local analysis. Where other vendors have taken the approach of `Web- enabling BI tools', QueryObject `Web-enables the data' so that it Internet- empowers an entire class of distributed analytical applications for e- businesses and traditional commerce."
