Software AG’s Tamino?

Software AG consultant Jose Huerga reminded me that Software AG has been selling XML database managers for a long time, and that they are now up to Release 4.4 of Tamino.

Personally, I’m out of touch with Software AG (e.g., I last visited Darmstadt in 1984). Would anybody care to share knowledge of or experiences with this product?

    I just read your latest Computerworld column, and saw the bullet update to your January column re XML.

    Mainframe DB2 V9 has a lot coming with XML (out of NDA and the beta starts in June). Whether or not customers will implement quickly is another thing; V7 -> V8 migration did not occur like the gangbusters that IBM thought (and still hasn’t, based on my observations). IBM has stated there will be no V7 -> V9 path.

    You really should look at Tamino closely – It’s a good product that unfortunately came out right at the start of the dot bomb so it got lost in the fallout. It is a native XML DBMS – and it is not based on ADABAS (which, IMHO, still beats any RDBMS, but that’s just my HO).

    Take a trip to Darmstadt – it’s grown a bit since 1984. Drink real beer. (But visit after July 9 so you don’t have to put up with the World Cup havoc.)

    Does Tamino have a lot of applications for which it obviously outperforms non-native XML storage alternatives?

    As for that link — yeah, I need to check it out. 🙂 Lots of case studies about apps, if nothing else.

    And I must confess that I didn’t even know Software AG had gone public. Back when Software AG of North America was a public company that I followed as a stock analyst, I annoyed the Darmstadt guys by finding the filings that even German private companies have to make, and publicizing the results broadly. But once again, that was over 20 years ago; things change.
