Platinum Technology announced last week a renewed commitment to joint development of the Platinum Microsoft repository, using the universal model language (UML), beyond version 2.0 "to version 3.0, 4.0 etc". The business intelligence tools specialist claims that its work with Microsoft has not alienated other partners like IBM and Oracle. UML was likely to be adopted by other vendors like Cognos, NCR, Business Objects and the Object Management Group, claimed Tom DePasquale, senior vice president Data Warehouse solutions at Platinum. Oracle was not likely to warm to the idea of the Platinum Microsoft repository, but had not got a coherent repository story itself since the demise of the Sedona project, he said.
Platinum is actively working with IBM and announcements will be made in three to six months.
