Historically, the OEM and ISV market for database
products has largely been focused
around transactional environments and the
supply of applications for particular horizontal
or vertical sectors. As time has gone by, these
solutions have been extended to support not
just reporting but also conventional business
intelligence capabilities. However, there is an
increasing requirement in many sectors for
non-transactional capability where the focus
is on analytic functions that extend beyond the
capabilities of standard business intelligence.

It is our belief that in order to support analytic
requirements, whether in a pre-packaged
analytic application or in a looser platform style
environment, there are special considerations
that need to be taken into account
over and above those traditionally involved
with selecting a database to be embedded in
a transactional application. In this paper we
propose 10 rules for selecting an embedded
analytic database.

We will conclude by taking a brief look at one
such analytic database provider, Infobright, and
discuss how it matches up with our 10 rules.
