Oracle plans to unveil its belated datamart bundle for Windows NT next month, at least six months behind rival Sybase and a couple behind Informix.
The delay is believed to have resulted from the database giant's lack of tools for extracting and cleaning data from different data sources. Oracle has now licensed Sagent Technology?s tool, (see Newswire, 4 February), which also enables users to populate their datamarts and manage metadata.
The bundle will include the Oracle database, its Designer/2000 database design tool and version 3.0 of its Web Application Server and Web Request Broker.
It will also incorporate the firm?s Express online analytical processing software and a stripped-down version of its Discoverer/2000 decision support tool.
Start-up Sagent also sells its own NT-based Data Mart Solution, which includes an application server, a metadata repository, design tools and a decision support offering.
