ARCHITECTURE WILL UNITE IBM AND VENDOR PRODUCTS TO PROVIDE VALUABLE CUSTOMER SOLUTIONS

 SAN FRANCISCO, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM Programming Systems today announced the publication of its Information Warehouse(A) Architecture, a blueprint to enable customers to build Information Warehouse solutions and to provide guidelines for software vendors who wish to build products that fit in the Information Warehouse framework.
 The architectural document describes the components and interfaces required to implement Information Warehouse solutions throughout the personal computer, workstation, local area network, midrange and mainframe environments.
 The initial goal of the architecture is to enable the development of compatible, easy-to-use client/server applications that provide access to all corporate data through an integrated set of data access capabilities.
 The architecture also expands upon the three components of the Information Warehouse framework -- Enterprise Data; Data Delivery; and Applications and Decision Support Systems -- to define five major components. They are applications, tools, access enablers, organization asset data, and supporting infrastructure.
 The Information Warehouse framework provides customers with a portfolio of solutions for common, effective ways to access, use and manage diverse information from IBM and other vendors, regardless of its format or location.
 "Customers will be encouraged to use the published architecture as a springboard for their own data architectures and designs," said Christopher Arnold, IBM programming systems director of enterprise database solutions. "The document will serve as a guideline for building applications and selecting IBM and non-IBM products with which to build Information Warehouse solutions."
 The document describes the components and programming interfaces of the Information Warehouse architecture, and a wide range of data configurations supported by the architecture.
 The interfaces in the document are based upon industry standards wherever possible. IBM plans to make all of these interfaces open and public. The currently defined interfaces will be published and made available by IBM immediately, while others will be published as part of a staged rollout by the end of 1993.
