Elmhurst, IL (PRWEB) February 17, 2005
Kirix Corporation proudly announced today that their new product, Kirix Strata, was given the Product Excellence Award for Best Desktop/Productivity/Business Application at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo being held in Boston, MA.
"We are very pleased and honored that Strata won the Product Excellence Award for best business application on the Linux desktop," stated Nathanael Williams, President of Kirix. "Our primary goal with Strata is to provide a cutting-edge business tool for both Windows and Linux -- this award validates our efforts."
Like similar desktop database applications, Kirix Strata enables users to manipulate data in a graphical environment, create queries and generate reports. However, Strata offers greater data capacity and performance, as well as a unique set of features that provide a more effective way to work with data.
Strata combines the instantaneous computational abilities of a spreadsheet with the capacity of a database management system. With Strata's dynamic functionality, users can create calculations instantly across an entire data set, combine data from multiple data sets interactively and perform instantaneous, aggregate calculations on groups of related records.
Strata imports and exports data to/from Microsoft Access, FoxPro/xBase and text delimited files as well as ODBC, IBM DB2, Oracle, MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server databases and provides UNICODE support. With Strata's drag-and-drop data integration feature, users can open connections to multiple external data sources at one time and import/export data interactively.
Kirix Strata is immediately available at the Kirix online store (http://www.kirix.com/store). Strata costs $125 per year for a subscription license or $425 for a perpetual license, plus a $45 annual maintenance fee for product updates. For more information, please visit http://www.kirix.com.
