[From PR Newswire
Ascential Software Corporation (Nasdaq: ASCL), the enterprise data integration
leader, today announced full support for IBM's new DB2 Cube Views software.
The Ascential(TM) Enterprise Integration Suite combines with Cube Views to
accelerate the development and lower the total cost of ownership for online
analytical processing (OLAP) and business intelligence (BI) applications by
making them easier to deploy and manage. This new capability works with DB2
Cube Views' dimensional modeling to provide meta data management of
information distributed throughout the enterprise.
Ascential Software has developed a bi-directional MetaBroker interface
between MetaStage(R), the meta data management component of the Ascential
Enterprise Integration Suite, and DB2 Cube Views. MetaStage provides a clear
and consistent view of the data's descriptive information and lineage,
including the data being modeled with DB2 Cube Views. MetaStage also extends
that visibility and usage tracking out to the BI analytical and reporting
tools interacting with DB2 Cube Views. Ascential Software's extensive
MetaBroker library now incorporates the powerful OLAP functionality of DB2
Cube Views into MetaStage's ability to provide analysis and management of
business definitions and rules for data across the entire business
intelligence, data integration and data management infrastructure.
