Metatomix Introduces New Version of Its Semantic Middleware Platform

Version 5.0 Features SOA-Enabling Technology and New Semantic Services Capabilities; Provides Customers With New Levels of Actio

DEDHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/10/07 -- Metatomix, Inc., the commercial standard for semantic solutions to financial services, justice, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, today announced Version 5.0 of its semantic middleware platform. Featuring service oriented architecture (SOA)-enabling technology, new semantic services functionality, administrative and performance enhancements, and standards support, Version 5.0 helps customers leverage semantic technology to integrate data, uncover and define information relationships, and provide business applications with meaning and actionable insight. Version 5.0 enables customers to reduce their reliance on expensive data warehouses and move toward far more flexible infrastructures capable of adapting quickly to changing requirements, considerably increasing their return on IT investment.

In related news, the company also announced today that it will enable its semantic middleware platform on the recently announced Oracle® Database 11g. Oracle Database 11g's native Resource Description Framework (RDF) storage capabilities, the enterprise-proven scalability of the Oracle Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) and Metatomix's semantic middleware frameworks together provide customers with detailed, contextualized data to enable better business decisions.

"Metatomix is focused on providing customers with real-world applications of semantic technology," said Metatomix Co-Founder and CTO Colin Britton. "The features and functionality announced in Version 5.0 today are geared toward helping our customers build semantically enabled applications as efficiently and rapidly as possible. Our customers tell us that the actionable intelligence our platform provides goes right to their businesses' bottom line."

Version 5.0 of Metatomix's semantic middleware platform semantically enables customers' existing SOA stacks by both consuming data from the customers' SOA architecture as well as providing its own SOA services. Specifically, Version 5.0's advancements in the area of service profiles enable customers to create links between customer data. These links -- called service links -- in turn create reusable modules out of service profiles, reducing the burden on customers for creating or modifying semantic applications.

Version 5.0 also features new semantic services to enable customers to make more intelligent inferences from their existing data. This is accomplished through full support of the W3C standard for SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language. SPARQL allows Metatomix customers to perform federated queries over multiple databases and multiple data formats. Query results are then returned in a simple, intuitive interface. Further enhancing its semantic service capabilities, Version 5.0 also features reasoning and validation advancements to help customers quickly create efficient and highly reliable semantic applications. This capability includes the ability to validate semantic data against an ontology.

Version 5.0 provides the ability to manage and persist semantic data across relational databases in memory, file-based and distributed metadata repositories. An improved business policy engine uniquely combines semantic reasoning and inferencing functionality with business production rules. The business policy engine provides customers with the ability to semantically describe business actions without the complexity required in writing traditional rules.

Version 5.0 comprises updates to Metatomix's application development tool, MetaStudio. For customers purchasing the Metatomix platform, MetaStudio provides an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) containing both tools and libraries to enable semantic application development, leveraging other tools such as Adobe Flex and other rich Internet application development architectures.

Version 5.0 also includes important administrative enhancements. "Up-versioning" of applications gives customers one-click, automatic access to the very latest Metatomix components and versions. New application development capabilities ease development and support of new and existing applications, and significant performance enhancements translate to faster, more efficient queries. Finally, Version 5.0 includes scripting capabilities for the Javascript, Groovy, TCL and Python languages, providing customers with out-of-the-box customization capabilities.
