NEW YORK, Feb. 20 - German bioinformatics software maker Science Factory and IBM will co-develop a data-management product that will combine the Science Factory's Übertool software with the computer giant's DiscoveryLink data-integration technology, the partners said today.
According to the companies, the new product will allow scientists to work with a wide range of data sources and file types including text, images, numeric files, and relational databases.
According to Stavros Taraviras, ISV Manager Life Sciences EMEA, "Using the combined solution from IBM and Science Factory, scientists will be able to access and integrate more databases than previously possible. BLAST, SQL Server, Oracle, Excel spreadsheets, Sybase, Documentum, flat files, and other data sources will all be made available to scientists using the system."
