Ingres buys pair of system integrators

Takes two to tango

Open source database firm Ingres Corporation said yesterday that it has acquired a brace of system integrators as it swoops to gain ground in the global enterprise market.

Financial terms of both deals were undisclosed but Ingres, which was spun out of CA and Garnett and Helfrich Capital in 2005, said it has swallowed up Leeds-based Luminary Solutions and Perth-based Management Information Systems (MIS).

Luminary has built Ingres-based systems for more than 20 years, and has customers on its books that include the Irish Office of the Revenue Commissioners and Italian kitchen appliance maker Indesit.

Australian firm MIS dishes out open source HR, payroll and asset management systems based on Ingres technologies. Its clients include government departments and port operators.

Ingres chief executive Roger Burkhart said: "By bringing these two adept firms directly into the Ingres family, we are responding to the rapid growth in worldwide customer demand for application development services from Ingres." ®
