Ten years later, the Versant database solution powers the new-generation Methode editorial platforms that have been adopted by global publishers such as the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times and a large number of leading media companies in Europe, the USA and elsewhere. The database solution now serves a total user base of over 10,000 at 50 different deployment sites.
"Mission critical applications that manage large volumes of non-traditional data structures are at the core of our markets," states Dirk Bartels, Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy at Versant Corporation. "EidosMedia is one of those innovators creating game changing applications for their vertical markets. Their vision in selecting Versant and long-term strategy is paying huge dividends today. We continue to work closely together with EidosMedia to support the ever growing installed base as well as continuing to develop our database platform for their future requirements."
"The latest release of Methode incorporates release 8.0 of the Versant solution," concluded Stefano. "Among the refinements, we particularly appreciated the improved scalability with the enhanced support for multi-core architectures."
EidosMedia develops new-generation knowledge-management and publishing systems for news and media organizations.
