Prometheus Research Launches HT//SQL Software

A new database tool that 'democratizes data'

Prometheus Research announced today the availability of its new database software tool, HT//SQL, a web application that web-enables databases in all industries quickly, securely, and at low cost.

Prometheus Research, a leader in biomedical research informatics, has been using a form of its HT//SQL software for its biomedical research customers, including leading universities and private foundations, which use the tool to analyze and share research data with colleagues through a simple, easy-to-navigate, web-based URL. With the commercial launch of HT//SQL, Prometheus envisions extending the benefits of the software to businesses, government agencies, and other data-centric organizations that recognize the power of data-driven intelligence but struggle with issues of cost and access.

"In the past, data consumers had to trade power for ease of use," said Andrzej Pienczykowski, Executive Vice President of Product Strategy, Prometheus Research. "They either learned to be a programmer or DBA, or they lived with limitations of the front-end web application," said Pienczykowski. "Prometheus HT//SQL truly democratizes data. Anyone who can type a URL can now query a database. It's the perfect solution for organizations that want their employees--or even the general public--to be able to leverage the full value of data without expending great amounts of energy or overtaxing their IT department."

By translating the language of the web (HTTP) into the language of databases (SQL), Prometheus HT//SQL eliminates many of the traditional barriers to data access. Users of HT//SQL-enabled databases can browse, search, share, and develop new applications using an interface that is familiar and ubiquitous--the Internet browser.
