News Dec 13, 2005
Tripos, Inc. and InforSense have announced an alliance to integrate Tripos' discovery informatics portfolio with the award-winning InforSense KDE workflow-based integrative analytics platform.
Through the alliance, Tripos joins InforSense's Open Workflow Partner Network (OWPN) and InforSense joins Tripos' Alliance Program as a Software Partner.
The two companies will also integrate Tripos' AUSPYX, SYBYL and UNITY technologies with both InforSense KDE and its 'in Oracle' enterprise analytics system, InforSense IOE.
This integration enables customers such as Bayer Healthcare who are using technology from both companies, to access and integrate Tripos' discovery informatics technologies within InforSense KDE.
"We are excited to work with InforSense to benefit our joint customers," said Bryan Koontz, senior vice president and general manager of Discovery Informatics at Tripos.
"The integrated Tripos-InforSense solution offers a powerful and flexible informatics platform for rapid application development and deployment, and takes advantage of our standardization on web services and related Service-Oriented Informatics (SOI) technologies."
"The technical alliance between Tripos and InforSense is a successful example of this strategy, providing mutual customers with even more options for deploying innovative science and discovery software in an open workflow environment."
"Our customers require seamless interoperability between their choice of data resources, analytic tools and services," commented Joseph F. Donahue, Chief Business Officer of InforSense.
"By combining the workflow technology of InforSense KDE with Tripos' innovative discovery informatics portfolio, we can provide our joint customers with a flexible and easy to use environment for their chemistry research that is able to integrate data and computing resources across the entire R&D organization."
