NEW YORK, July 30-Spotfire licensed its DecisionSite database querying platform to Agilent, the two companies said today.
Agilent will use the platform to develop future drug discovery informatics applications in its Informatics Solutions Business Unit.
Spotfire also said today that it would add to its DecisionSite software a chemical data managing application produced by the New Jersey software company DeltaSoft.
That application, called ChemCart, provides support for a range of chemcial data cartridges that can be used to search Oracle databases for molecular chemical structure data. This software adds chemical cartridge capability to Spotfire's data analysis capabilities.
Oracle introduced data cartridges to its databases as a way to systemize cheminformatics.
