Seven Steps to Software Security

Informatica, a privately held company that IPOd a couple of weeks ago, seeing its share price at launch rise by 84 per cent, is close to striking a European deal with IBM. The company, said founding president Diaz Nesamoney, had struck deals with SAP R/3 and PeopleSoft for two main reasons. The first reason, Nesamoney admitted, was because Informatica had to obtain access to the 15,000 database tables in SAP R/3 and PeopleSoft's technology too. The second reason, he said was because SAP and PeopleSoft had around 20,000 ERP users worldwide and they could re-sell the software company's solution. Nesamoney said that other products in the Informatica stable would certainly work with DB/2. But he denied a deal with Big Blue is on the cards. The source staunchly maintained that an IBM European deal is in the offing. ®
