Fuseforward™ Selects Infobright® Database to Power Its Intelligent Systems Management™ Platform

Infobright Analytic Database Embedded in Fuseforward's Intelligent Systems Management™ Solutions

TORONTO and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, today announced that Fuseforward International Inc.™, an infrastructure management solution provider, has selected Infobright Enterprise Edition (IEE) as its embedded analytic database and joined the company's growing network of OEM partners.

Fuseforward will embed IEE, a high-performance, self-managing analytic database, in its Intelligent Systems Management™ (ISM) platform. The ISM platform enables "intelligent" operations and management of the assets and systems of cities, utilities and other asset-intensive enterprises.

Fuseforward provides "intelligent" infrastructure management solutions for asset-intensive enterprises such as governments, utilities and businesses. The company will embed the IEE database into the ISM Utility Edition that it is developing in partnership with a Canadian utilities provider, Utilities Kingston (UK). This "Smart Utility" solution is designed to support all aspects of utility management, including customer relations, operations management, financial management and performance management, as well as smart metering and Smart Grid technologies.

IEE will enable the ISM platform to capture and retain large volumes of data to support:

--  Real-time analysis of the performance of complex systems
--  Analysis of data from smart utility meters
--  Capture of historical performance data to support benchmarking and
    long-term analysis

"Managing large volumes of data effectively is key to the value our Intelligent Systems Management platform provides to our customers," said Mark Damm, CEO of Fuseforward. "Using IEE, we can deliver the powerful analysis capabilities that complex organizations need to manage and optimize their operations now and in the future."

Infobright's analytic database enhances application and service offerings with the ability to keep more data online, load data faster and support greater flexibility in reporting and analysis. In addition, Infobright's self-managing software reduces administrative effort by up to 90 percent, leverages standard servers and requires far less storage than other products due to its industry-leading data compression and elimination of indexes, data partitioning or data duplication.

The reduction in hardware costs and administrative effort, and affordable pricing means that companies like Fuseforward can meet their customers' data management and business intelligence requirements cost effectively, increasing product margins and accelerating time-to-market.

"Our partnership with Fuseforward is a perfect example of how we are offering solution providers advanced flexibility to easily enhance their offerings with Infobright's powerful, low-cost analytic database," said Mark Burton, CEO at Infobright. "We are pleased to welcome Fuseforward into our Partner network, and look forward to working together to bring highly scalable analytic capabilities to the utility industry."
