IBM Upgrades Alphablox Analytics Software

IBM acquired Alphablox in July 2004, and has since integrated the firms' analytics into products including DB2 Data Warehouse.

IBM introduced business intelligence software building off last year's acquisition of Alphablox that's designed to enable near real-time analysis of data, the company says.

IBM Alphablox V8.3 is designed to bring intelligence to "people at the point-of-decision in business relationships," IBM says. The software runs on Linux, Unix and Windows and features support for IBM's Rational Application Developer and WebSphere Portal Server.

IBM acquired Alphablox, a privately held analytics vendor, in July 2004 as part of a push to boost its business intelligence capabilities. IBM has since integrated Alphablox functionality into products including its DB2 Data Warehouse.

Alphablox is designed to let users tap interrelated customer, supplier and operational data. Improvements to V8.3 include better database access, cross-browser support, and first-time support for eight spoken languages. It also supports Cloudscape 10, IBM's Java-based embeddable database.

Pricing for V8.3 starts at $45,000 per CPU.
