Ipedo Named 'Company to Watch' in 2006 by Intelligent Enterprise Magazine
Eighth Annual Editors' Choice Awards Honor Ipedo XIP for Linking Business Intelligence to Service Oriented Architecture
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 4, 2006 Ipedo, a leading provider of enterprise information integration (EII) software, today announced it was selected as one of the Intelligent Enterprise Companies to Watch in the magazine's eighth annual Editors' Choice Awards. Ipedo XIP was selected for its innovative and unique ability to allow seamless integration between SQL-based business intelligence applications and XML-based Web Services.
Intelligent Enterprise honors companies that are providing critical leadership for organizations focused on becoming "intelligent" enterprises. The choices are the result of a year's worth of editorial research, reviews and conversations with the Intelligent Enterprise community of contributing experts. The editors chose companies that provide exceptional vision, technology innovation and customer leadership in attaining strategic objectives with business intelligence, process management, SOA and more.
"Every year, we sift through our editorial coverage, reviews and research, including discussions with our top contributing writers and editors, and make our selections," said David Stodder, editor-in-chief, Intelligent Enterprise. "Determining which companies to spotlight is always tough; we look beyond just financial performance to consider a range of leadership qualities. In our results, sometimes the smaller, innovative providers are more influential in the creation of 'intelligent' enterprises than the big software behemoths."
"Business intelligence and SOA are the two main drivers of the EII market, and we continue to see strong demand for linking the two," said Nick Zhang, founder and chief executive officer of Ipedo. "We are proud to be recognized by Intelligent Enterprise for providing innovative solutions that allow our customers to embrace new technologies like SOA while leveraging existing IT investments."
Ipedo XIP uses SQL and XQuery to integrate and manage information from disparate, complex data sources to enable real-time business decisions. Ipedo's patented approach treats existing corporate databases and Web Services as a single, virtual data source that applications or users can access using industry-standard protocols. This allows users to gain customized access to the information they need, in a context that makes sense, all while leveraging existing IT investments. Ipedo's unique Web Services Tables technology allows users to easily map XML-based Web Services into relational models needed in business intelligence and reporting applications. An online demonstration of Web Services Tables is available at http://www.ipedo.com/wstdemo.
