InfoManager Ties Data Warehouse to Desktop Using Java

With the recent release of its InfoManager Enterprise Web, Finland-based InfoManager Oy has come to see the IBM Network Station Series 1000 as "an ideal client device" for its network-centric AS/400 customer base, according to published reports.

InfoManager Enterprise Web is a Java-based client interface to the company's data warehouse solution. Enterprise Web is expected to enable InfoManager customers to deploy InfoManager Data Warehouse across their organizations without the need for local desktop installations and maintenance.

As Java continues to become the technology of choice for line-of-business enterprise applications, Enterprise Web represents an additional way for organizations to extend their computing resouces, according to Pete Jakob, European marketing manager for IBM's Network Computer Division.
