MicroStrategy, a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software, has announced that it has strengthened its relationship with IBM through the launch of MicroStrategy SDK 7.1 Java edition. MicroStrategy SDK, MicroStrategy's comprehensive development environment for the MicroStrategy 7 web reporting and business intelligence platform, is designed to seamlessly integrate with IBM WebSphere Application Server, IBM's e-business application deployment environment built on open-standards based technology. "IBM's WebSphere Application Server provides the highly scalable and reliable foundation for MicroStrategy's SDK solution," said Paraic Sweeney, vice president of marketing, WebSphere software platform, IBM. "This relationship will provide businesses with the power of the WebSphere software for e-business and MicroStrategy's SDK solution for building business intelligence applications." MicroStrategy SDK features a Java-based Web API that developers can use to build Web reporting and business intelligence applications on multiple platforms, including IBM AIX and web application servers such as IBM WebSphere. IBM WebSphere's support of J2EE standards including Java servlets, JavaServer Pages and XML smoothly integrates with MicroStrategy SDK's functionality to power e-business applications of any magnitude, enabling customers to easily incorporate MicroStrategy business intelligence platform into any WebSphere application. "We are extremely excited about our relationship with IBM, which has taken a great leap forward with this initiative. IBM Websphere is based entirely on open standards and as such fits in seamlessly with Java SDK's web-centric environment. For organisations that are looking for a highly robust business intelligence application to enhance their e-business, this combination provides the ideal solution" said Bob Skeens, managing director, MicroStrategy, UK. MicroStrategy added Java and Unix capabilities to support a wider variety of applications and make it easier for systems integrators and value added resellers to quickly develop and integrate MicroStrategy's business intelligence platform into their offerings. MicroStrategy SDK features a completely open, XML-based architecture that makes it simple to customize or seamlessly integrate and extend MicroStrategy's technical capabilities into many existing Web, windows or wireless solutions, enabling rapid deployment of custom applications. -ends- About MicroStrategy Incorporated MicroStrategy is a leading worldwide provider of Intelligent E-Business software and related services.
