If you’re looking to build a completely Mac OS X-native data management system, you might want to consider Omnis Studio from
Raining Data Corp.. The company recently said that it is bundling an evaluation version of relational database package FrontBase with its own Omnis Studio version 3.02. The package combines Raining Data’s own Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool with a database server.
This latest version of Omnis Studio
is compatible with Mac OS X, and it’s no coincidence that Raining Data is including an evaluation license of FrontBase 2.22. FrontBase is one of the first relational database servers available for Mac OS X. FrontBase has written a Database Access Module, or DAM, to provide a connection to Omnis Studio.
Raining Data chairman and CEO Bryce Burns said that his company believes that Omnis and FrontBase are “the most advanced and scalable” data management environment available for the Mac today.
“Our engineering teams have worked closely together to ensure that Apple OS X developers can immediately benefit from the power of Omnis Studio and Frontbase, for which combination there is no equal on the OS X platform,” said Burns.
