Matisse Software   Matisse Software (ADB)

    The Matisse database, from Fresher Information Corp., is designed for object developers who need to rapidly develop and deploy scalable object-based applications and services. Matisse's proven architecture and patent pending technology include full support for object programming and server-based native SQL.

    Matisse is uniquely positioned to provide the optimal foundation for object development and deployment - something previous generations of databases have strived for, but never fully achieved. Unlike other databases that suffer from performance problems, unnecessary complexity and administrative bottlenecks, Matisse is high performance, efficient and requires zero administration.

    Matisse allows developers to create applications and services faster, cheaper and more effectively while simultaneously allowing IT to cost-effectively deploy and administer these applications.

    Eiffel Software offers EiffelMatisse, an Eiffel interface for the Matisse database. Backed by solid customer experience in financial and CAD applications, EiffelMatisse adds the power of an advanced O-O database to object-oriented development.
