…MicroStrategy 7 will allow Informatica eMarketplace customers to derive
increased value from analytic information…

Informatica Corporation, the leading provider of eBusiness analytic
solutions, and MicroStrategy Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider
of business intelligence software, has announced that Informatica will
incorporate the MicroStrategy 7 business intelligence platform as the
front-end presentation layer of its newly released Informatica
eMarketplace analytic application.

"As a Web-based front end for Informatica eMarketplace, the
MicroStrategy 7 platform will provide users with a truly thin client for
easy access to analytic information, and a scalable, relational OLAP
engine for meaningful views of that information," said Ron Papas, vice
president of business development for Informatica. "Customised reports
enabled by MicroStrategy 7 will allow Informatica eMarketplace customers
to derive increased value from their analytic information, helping them
fuel even greater business performance."

"We are pleased to be chosen by Informatica for their business
intelligence needs. As an organisation focused on delivering
sophisticated information to the market, a key requirement for
Informatica was to have a scalable system that can be easily customised
- a functionality that only the MicroStrategy 7 platform can provide
today." said Bob Skeens, managing director, MicroStrategy, UK.

Informatica eMarketplace helps operators of B2B marketplaces provide
buyers and suppliers with insight into market dynamics, customer buying
patterns and pricing trends. Furnishing analytic insight to marketplace
participants is critical in helping them optimise their performance, and
is one of the most powerful value-added services a marketplace operator
can provide to stay competitive.

The MicroStrategy business intelligence platform, MicroStrategy 7, is
highly scalable and built specifically for the Internet. Its pure-Web
architecture provides the Web reporting, security, performance and
standards that are critical for deployment over the Web. With proven
data and user scalability, MicroStrategy is a solution capable of
analysing today's growing multi-terabyte data warehouses and
distributing information to millions of users. The open and flexible
platform provides the business intelligence foundation for all
