Author: JT Smith

Databeacon, Inc., creator of Internet-based data
analysis and reporting software for the masses, today announced support
for
the Linux operating system for Databeacon 5.1. The Linux version of
Databeacon 5.1 runs on all Linux-based desktop systems, and does not
require
any training, manuals or installation procedures for end users.

According to a March 2001 study by market research firm IDC, Linux is
the
fastest growing operating system for the enterprise. The growth of the
Linux operating system surpassed all other systems in 2000, increasing
its
market share to 27 percent. By developing support for Linux,
Databeacon is
extending its commitment to provide its data analysis software to all
users,
regardless of the platform they are using to run their desktop.

Currently offering support for a variety of operating systems,
including
Microsoft Windows 95,98,2000 and NT; UNIX-IBM AIX, HP-UX, and Sun
Solaris;
and Compaq TRU64, the addition of Linux support further extends
Databeacon's
mission to provide platform agnostic data analysis tools for the
masses.

"Databeacon is embracing Linux by providing a data analysis tool that
is
completely compliant with the operating system," said Andrew Coutts,
CEO,
Databeacon. "More companies each year are turning to the
cost-effective and
highly-stable Linux operating system, and Databeacon is committed to
open
source and offering its software to customers on any and all
platforms."

Databeacon targets Internet-driven organizations that want to deliver
information analysis and reporting capabilities to a mass audience of
casual
users. Databeacon 5.1 allows mass audiences to self-service their data
analysis needs through a simple end-user interface and customized,
pre-defined levels for novice, standard or advanced users. Unlike
traditional business intelligence products, Databeacon 5.1, does not
