Emma K McGrattan Delivers High-Energy SYS-CON.TV Webcast on Eclipse DTP

Ingres Icebreaker Takes Center Stage on SYS-CON.TV's Webcast

Questions as usual flowed in abundantly to Emma K McGrattan when she gave her live Webcast on SYS-CON.TV on "Eclipse DTP as a Platform for Rapid Innovation," a talk that showcased the passion surrounding Ingres's open-source activities, and that show McGrattan herself to be as dedicated and knowledgeable an advocate of open source technologies as you can get.

The Eclipse Foundation is a "perfect match" for Ingres's Icebreaker, said McGrattan.

"As well as rich application development capabilities it also provides graphical database browsing and editing across platforms," she added. The webinar ended with the usual slew of questions, from the highly technical ("Can legacy Ingres ABF/4GL apps run with Icebreaker?") to the more general ("How does Ingres differentiate between the Eclipse development platform and the OpenRoad develpment platform?").

McGrattan is responsible for the development and integration of the Ingres database and associated products and technologies. A leading authority in DBMS and open source technologies, she has been instrumental in the ongoing success of the Ingres product line.

Born in Ireland,McGrattan earned a bachelor's degree in electronic engineering from Dublin City University. Here irish eloquence was very much in evidence today as she gave her webcast.
