Ipedo announced an enterprise Beta Test Program for the Ipedo XML Intelligence Platform (XIP), which helps organizations integrate and leverage their information assets. Ipedo XIP integrates and manages information from disparate, complex data sources and enables real-time business decisions. The Beta Test Program, which begins the week of October 11 and runs through November, has been designed to allow select customers and partners to provide feedback and influence product direction on Ipedo XIP. The program will also feature an extensive set of tests with BI and reporting tools. The Ipedo XML Intelligence Platform is a combination of information integration and intelligence technology. The software platform uses advanced XML techniques to extract and manage business critical data from disparate data sources, regardless of format. Ipedo expects that the product will be commercially available in the fourth quarter of 2004. A limited number of customers and partners will be selected for inclusion in the testing. www.ipedo.com
