Montreal, Canada – November 13, 2007 SAND Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: SNDTF.OB), an international provider of intelligent enterprise information management software, has been included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management Systems, 2007.* “We are very excited and honored to be included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant,” said Linda Arens, Vice President, Global Alliances and Marketing for SAND Technology. “In my opinion, this shows that SAND is recognized as a player in the data warehousing market, due to our ability to intelligently manage large amounts of data to reduce TCO, improve operational efficiencies and better support regulatory compliance. Our SAND/DNA products have helped many companies in financial services, retail, government, utilities, healthcare, and telecommunications lower their infrastructure costs while at the same time improving their responsiveness to customers and enabling them to gain a competitive edge.”
SAND/DNA enables enterprise customers in all industries to cost-effectively retain massive amounts of compressed data in a nearline repository for extended periods, in accordance with any applicable business rules and regulatory requirements, and to rapidly retrieve information when needed.
