Gaining a consumer image�

MVLogo.gifTo gain a consumer image commensurate with the true collective market size of these database environments, International Spectrum spearheaded a drive in January 1996 to encourage the core providers, VARs, and end users in the market to refer to and label their products and systems as belonging to a common family of products through the user of a �Dolby Surround�-like symbol.  With the assistance of a special Technical Advisory Board, the term �MultiValue� was deemed to have both technical and marketing significance and the MultiValue symbol was adopted.

 

A Simple and Effective Concept�

MVLogo.gifAny producer of software or services specifically designed for a MultiValue-identified database environment can use the MultiValue symbol in conjunction with those products and services.  The current suppliers of the MultiValue database environment are jBASE / Zumasys, Inc (jBASE), Rocket Software (UniVerse, UniData, D3, mv*Base & mvEnterpise), Revelation Software (AREV & OpenInsight), NorthgateArinso (Reality), ONgroup Intl (MVON), InterSystems (Cache), & Ladybridge Systems Ltd (OpenQM) .
