Metatomix Named "Cool Vendor" by Leading Analyst Firm

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

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- Metatomix, Inc. today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool vendors" in the data management and integration report by Gartner, Inc. (1) The report, published on March 14, highlights companies that offer "innovative approaches and technology for searching structured data assets, integrating structured and unstructured data, improving the scalability of data warehouses and facilitating data governance activities."

"We're honored to be named a Gartner 'Cool Vendor,' which we believe has long been a noteworthy distinction in the industry," said Jeff Dickerson, president and CEO. "We share Gartner's view that '...organizations seeking to solve data integration problems that extend across data silos and across the breadth of the content continuum must wrestle with complex semantic models.' Metatomix semantically reconciles data silos into one common model of consistent meaning, enabling integration, correlation and insights not achievable with non semantic approaches."
