NCR, Hummingbird Enter Marketing Alliance
Hummingbird Ltd. (North York, Ontario) and NCR Corporation (Dayton, Ohio) this week announced a joint global marketing agreement designed to boost the value and performance of Hummingbird's Enterprise Portal Suite, which includes Genio Suite and BI/Suite, and NCR’s Teradata data warehousing product.
"Many high growth oriented businesses who are at the crossroads of a data warehouse decision, now have an enhanced 'one stop shopping' option with the partnership of Hummingbird and NCR," said Paula Basch-Austin, NCR vice president of global alliances.
According to the companies, from their earliest releases, Genio Suite and BI/Suite have supported NCR’s Teradata platform. Genio Suite directly accesses Teradata's bulk loaders, optimizing load management for complex warehouses. In addition, Teradata was used as a development benchmark for evaluating Genio Suite's performance as a database and data integration tool.
"Several major customers have implemented business solutions using both NCR's and Hummingbird's offerings," says Hummingbird president Barry Litwin. "We expect the formal relationship announced today to add significant value to these organizations, and anticipate additional benefits as the relationship evolves."
Hummingbird products covered by the Mutual Referral Agreement include Enterprise Portal Suite, BI/Suite, Genio Suite, a data transformation tool and Genio Miner, a data mining workbench.
