Data delivery platform rides on J2EE, scales to thousands of users

An information delivery application from Informatica Corp. can send personalized data to desktop PCs, handheld devices and some wireless phones.

Through a desktop browser, the Analytics Delivery Platform presents user-selected documents, charts and real-time alerts on a so-called Web dashboard, said Joseph Nicholson, vice president of marketing for the Redwood City, Calif., company.

Personal digital assistants and Wireless Application Protocol-enabled phones also can receive documents and alerts.

The password-protected Informatica application, built on Java2 Enterprise Edition, can scale to thousands of users, Nicholson said. It works in conjunction with Informatica's Power Center Data Information Platform and meets Federal Information Processing Standard 140-1 for information that is sensitive but not classified.

A voice-recognition feature gives users access to their e-mail and to check for alerts over any telephone, after a prompt for a user name and password on the numeric keypad, Nicholson said.
The server side of the Analytics Delivery Platform runs under Microsoft Windows NT and leading flavors of Unix, Nicholson said.

The Analytics Delivery Platform starts around $140,000 for a dual-processor server with a few hundred users.
