Ipedo announced the latest version of its EII platform, incorporating several product enhancements to facilitate delivery of on-demand intelligence. Ipedo XIP 4.0 introduces a dual SQL/XQuery engine, giving it a broad span of information integration. The new release also features several new capabilities designed to reduce the cost and complexity of information integration, including a visual rules processing interface, Web Services publishing, and integration with BusinessObjects and Crystal Reports. In all, Ipedo XIP 4.0 has over 50 new additions and improvements, including enhanced query optimization techniques, new data source discovery and mapping capabilities, and new visual wizards for data import.
