ORANGE, Calif., Oct 27, 2009 – mLogica, Inc, a leading Business Intelligence solutions company, specializing in Predictive Analytic Appliances, and Fuzzy Logix, a leading predictive analytics company, specializing in Artificial Intelligence and sophisticated quantitative techniques, today announced the availability of Fuzzy Logix’s  advanced analytics libraries, as part of mLogica’s core Business Intelligence Appliance, powered by the high performance Sybase® Analytics Engine.

The Analytic Appliance On Demand model offers a delivery of services in a highly scalable and elastic fashion at lower costs, better performance and agility, turning complex business processes into simple services. This “Software as a Service” model allows customers to utilize the platform in a Public or Private cloud, and pay by utilization on a monthly basis.

Unlike traditional data mining solutions, Fuzzy Logix’s in-database functions allow companies to process  large volumes of data, without sacrificing throughput and accuracy. Fuzzy Logix’s libraries include mathematical and statistical functions, Univariate and Multivariate Distributions, and data mining and pattern recognition, including but not limited to, principal component analysis, linear, non-linear and advanced regression, clustering, forecasting, and behavioral segmentation.

The new Sybase IQ 15 Toolkit ships with Eclipse BIRT as its de facto Rich Information Application development environment.  With the incorporation of Actuate’s value added BIRT offering into their Analytic Appliance solutions, mLogica is able to provide scalable, turnkey analytic solutions to large commercial enterprises and public sector organizations, as well as mid-market businesses in a cost effective manner. mLogica’s clients include major organizations in the financial services, entertainment, technology, education, health care, telecommunications, manufacturing and transportation and logistics industries.

“We are excited about using mLogica’s Analytic Appliance with Actuate and BIRT to produce reports for our managers and executive leadership team. Being able to produce insightful and interactive reports about our clients and their purchasing trends is of utmost importance to us,” said John Manzanares, Vice President, IT, Daylight Transport. “In addition to the Analytic Appliance taking the reporting load off of our transactional databases, our users will receive these reports in a much timelier manner.”

“Sybase is pleased to be part of the mLogica and Fuzzy Logix Predictive Analytic Appliance. Built on high performance analytics and database engines from Sybase, including Sybase IQ, ASE and Replication Server®, the offering provides a price and performance advantage to both large and mid-sized businesses,” said Dan Lahl, Director of Analytics, Sybase, Inc. “Sybase IQ delivers unsurpassed query performance for the most complex analytics tasks within this affordable, eco-friendly and manageable environment.”

“The inclusion of Actuate’s value added offerings for BIRT within the mLogica Predictive Analytic Appliance and the option to deploy on the Cloud gives customers the flexibility of expenditure and deployment options that they demand,” said Nobby Akiha, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Actuate Corporation.  “We’re pleased to be working with mLogica one of our pioneer partners on the BIRT Exchange Marketplace to bring to market even more options for customers. You can visit the Marketplace at http://www.birt-exchange.com/marketplace.”

“The Predictive Analytic Appliance offers analysts an option to perform predictive, in-database analytics  and complex data mining tasks such as determining optimal pricing, segmenting customers based on their behavior, lowering  customer churn, optimizing marketing performance, identifying fraud and forecasting sales and inventory movement  entirely within the Appliance.  We can then represent the results using the many powerful visualization features of BIRT,” said Partha Sen, CEO of Fuzzy Logix. “This approach, as compared to the more traditional approach of transporting data out of the database for processing, offers high performance and provides the ability to gain valuable insights. With mLogica’s  bundled solution, performing data mining and advanced analytics have never been easier or more accessible”

“mLogica’s Business Intelligence offerings are significantly enhanced with our relationship with Fuzzy Logix, Actuate and Sybase,” said Amit Okhandiar, President and CEO, mLogica, Inc. ” Fuzzy Logix’s Quantitative Analytic features provide strategic advantages to our clients who can now perform advanced in-database and predictive analytics in the Analytic Appliance.
