illuminate Solutions Named "Cool Vendor" by Leading Analyst Firm

Vendors Selected for the "Cool Vendor Report" Are Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing

BARCELONA, SPAIN and MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - April 18, 2008) - illuminate Solutions (http://www.i-lluminate.com), pioneer of the correlation database management system (CDBMS) technology for building data-driven data warehouses, data marts and analytics applications, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Data Management and Integration, 2008 report by Gartner, Inc.

The March 2008 report, authored by analysts Ted Friedman, Andreas Bitterer and Donald Feinberg, highlights vendors "that offer innovative approaches and technology." illuminate was listed in the Gartner Report, which calls attention to technologies "for improving the scalability of databases and data warehouses, integrating data for delivery to SaaS-based applications, integrating geo-spatial data sets, and ensuring the integrity of data moving across applications and data structures. Each of these areas will grow in importance as organizations work toward managing information as a strategic corporate asset."

"We think Gartner really 'gets' how the correlation database can solve the ad hoc analysis problem," noted Kirsten Chapman, illuminate's vice president of global marketing and alliances. "By indexing every single data value, our value-based storage can handle unpredictable queries at very fast speeds, using our unique incremental and associative queries. We invite more organizations to test our technology with our free POC offer."
