IISi services deliver special features and complete solutions;

Netezza solutions are key focus

Boston, Mass. - December 12, 2008 - Intelligent Integrations Systems (IISi) has announced a line of service packages designed to deliver full development and integration services for the data warehousing industry. The IISi solutions will initially focus on geospatial implementations.

"One size doesn't fit all," said IISi CEO Paul Davis. "There are great standard tools on the market, but most customers need specialized services that fit their business needs. We offer full solutions for customers, not just boxes."

Netezza geospatial implementations are IISi's first strategic focus. As the developer and technology source of Netezza's "Spatial" product, IISi is the only integrator and full-solution developer capable of providing extensive additional functionality to Netezza Spatial installations. Netezza delivers the industry's leading data warehouse appliances; IISi utilizes such appliances to deliver complete customer solutions.

Complete Geospatial Solutions

IISi is a best of breed integrator, product developer, and custom solutions provider. IISi offers integration and custom services that utilize the leading MPP data warehouse platforms for specific solutions. IISi has special capabilities related to Netezza.

IISi created "Netezza Spatial," now marketed exclusively by Netezza as an extension of their market-leading data warehouse appliance. IISi, as possessor of underlying technology, is the only developer and integrator capable of creating fully-functional special applications - including special solutions that simplify the process of bringing location and business data in a business intelligence environment.

IISi offerings solve problems applications include geospatial analysis, geospatial data fusion, and geospatial visualization/mapping custom features.
