Maptek Selects Objectivity/DB for Next Generation of Mining Software Solutions
Sunnyvale, Calif. (PRWEB) June 4, 2008 -- Objectivity/DB, the leading real-time data management (http://www.objectivity.com/pages/objectivity/default.asp?source=8pr) solution for software applications with complex data management requirements, has been selected by Maptek as a key part of their platform for their next generation of products, including Maptek Vulcan, I-Site, and MineSuite.
The first deployment of Objectivity/DB will occur in a new version of Maptek?s I-Site software, a tool that allows users in the mining, engineering and forensics industries to collect, model and manipulate millions of scanned data points captured from high performance laser scanners. The Maptek I-Site product family is used to capture detailed 3D laser images, high-resolution photos and survey data.
Objectivity/DB will satisfy two critical requirements of Maptek?s next generation solutions (http://www.objectivity.com/pages/objectivity/overview.asp): the ability to scale over time without loss of performance and the ability to process massive amounts of data in real-time. The transition to Objectivity/DB is part of Maptek?s long-term strategy to seek innovative and efficient ways of meeting customer needs.
?Utilizing Objectivity/DB will significantly reduce development time for our next generation of products, enabling us to innovate faster and deliver leading-edge solutions to our customers,? said Barry Henderson, CEO of Maptek.
