Noetix will announce a deal with Siebel Systems on Tuesday to develop its data integration software product to support Siebel's e-business applications.
The product, NoetixViews, enables enterprises to translate corporate data into usable business information.
First introduced in 1996, NoetixViews generates business reports for a user's application configuration. It enables mapping, discovery, storage, and the generation of business views, said Paul Song, Noetix CEO. The Noetix product will allow Siebel's e-business applications to access and deliver customized business reports, he said.
Song said Noetix, which already supports Oracle applications, wants its customers to have fast and secure access to integrated applications. "Billions of dollars are spent on IT, but no one has all the data [enterprises] want, when [they] want it," he said in an interview. "Getting data is still the fundamental problem."
One analyst said the software may improve access to disparate content within enterprises. "The idea is to integrate data from different source systems and present it to the end-user in a unified way," said Dan Vesset, senior research analyst for datawarehousing at International Data Corp.
"You can have Oracle financials [applications] or Oracle human resources [applications], and if you want to look across those applications, you might want to use [Noetix] software to bring it together," Vesset added.
Competitors include Callixa, InfoRay, and nQuire Software, Vesset said.
Noetix presently has more than 900 customers, including Yahoo, Sony, and Motorola, the company said.
In February, the company announced US$17 million in funding from Polaris Venture Partners and Sigma Partners.
