Information Advantage (IA) plans to port its Unix-based multidimensional database to Windows NT next year because, according to Richard Parker, vice president of product marketing, the operating system is a good low end platform for prototyping and departmental installations.
He added that the firm hoped to provide a route for customers wanting to scale up from Microsoft's Panorama offering, when that hits the market, but admitted IA had no strategy to counteract the threat of the software giant's entry into the Olap space. Instead, he expects the sector to split into users wanting low end NT-based products or high end Unix products.
