illuminate Solutions Delivers Correlation Database Technology That Generates Data Warehouses and Data Marts

Exclusive Interview Featuring illuminate Solutions' Chief Architect, Joe Foley

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Joe Foley, chief architect and cofounder of illuminate Solutions (, recently participated in an exclusive interview with Ron Powell and the Business Intelligence Network ( In this interview, Foley discusses a new type of database engine, called a correlation database, which generates data warehouses and data marts on the fly while loading raw data. This technology is particularly well-suited for organizations that have not yet deployed a data warehouse and/or those that have urgent needs for true ad hoc analysis.

"The Business Intelligence Network is an influential voice about what's happening in the data warehousing industry," says Joe Foley. "Its reputation for understanding and highlighting innovative products that help companies sift through the noise to find the real nuggets is important to us. We're grateful they chose to highlight our correlation database engine, a radically new way to build, deploy and maintain data warehouses, data marts and analytics applications."

"It's not often that a company offers a challenge to replicate large complex analytics systems on the fly, but that's the risk-free offer illuminate is proposing," says Ron Powell, cofounder and editorial director of the Business Intelligence Network. "Its data-generated schema and automatic indexing system can be ready for complex analytics in weeks or months instead of the months or even years it takes to create other data warehouses."
