Distributed Computing Power Delivers Better Web Site Experience for Consumers, Greater Productivity for Marketers, and Higher Reliability for Businesses

WALTHAM, MA and ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Unica Marketing Innovation Summit -- Unica Corporation (NASDAQ: UNCA), the recognized leader in marketing software solutions, today announced significant advancements in its software-as-a-service (SaaS) architecture that powers the Unica OnDemand product line. This innovative architecture makes maximum use of cloud computing and content delivery network resources to improve the performance, scalability, and reliability of Unica OnDemand products benefitting marketers, businesses, and consumers.
