PointBase Embedded Receives Crossroads 2003 A-List Award in the Java Embedded Database Category

1/28/2003 - PointBase®, Inc., the leader in Java embedded database products for managing and synchronizing enterprise data across all platforms, announced that the analysts and researchers at Open Systems Advisors, Inc. have recognized PointBase Embedded with a prestigious Crossroads 2003 A-List Award in the “Java Embedded Database” category. PointBase Embedded, a powerful, small-footprint Java Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), is the PointBase Java product line flagship.

“The Crossroads A-List award clearly identifies a company’s product, technology or service as a proven performer for its business customers, “said Nina G. Lytton, President of Open Systems Advisors, Inc. “PointBase Embedded is clearly well on its way to mainstream adoption. It maintains a clear and strategic focus on the needs of ISVs and other businesses, an important value always, but an especially important factor during difficult economic cycles. It saves customers the cost of development resources and it minimizes testing and debugging requirements. Its customers consider PointBase Embedded a viable and reliable product with true competitive advantages, offering consistent business results.”

“This 10th annual Crossroads A-List Award holds special meaning to us at PointBase,” said Bruce Scott, PointBase founder and CEO. “The Crossroads selection and evaluation process is particularly stringent, requiring confidential interviews with actual customers who are willing to talk about significant results to OSA researchers. It was therefore our customers who really made this award possible, and we truly appreciate their participation. It would be hard to overstate how gratified we are to have earned the 2003 Crossroads A-List Award as the best Java embedded database.”

PointBase Embedded is noted for its ability to reduce both time to market and cost of ownership for developers and end users alike. It is especially suited for embedding in multi-threaded Java applications that provide multiple connections to the database within the same JVM (Java Virtual Machine.) Transparent to end users, PointBase Embedded is truly portable across all platforms, providing customers with streamlined application deployment and integration coupled with automatic administration. The result is greatly reduced cost to deploy and maintain even the most complex applications running under high transactional loads in distributed and multi-tiered network environments.
