External Index and Query (EIQ) Products™ are superior federated adapters, sub-middleware and add-ons, accessed through standard drivers and SQL, and designed for real-time data virtualization, federation, integration and interoperability

EIQ Products™ are intended to accommodate almost any data management situation and solution, including data access and integration, customer data integration (CDI)-master data management (MDM), link mapping and link analysis, business intelligence (BI) and analytics.

Many of these solutions have conventionally depended on copying data to databases, data warehouses and/or data marts, however, WhamTech EIQ Products™ offer a true alternative virtual data warehouse.  Even conventional data warehouse-only attributes of backup, archive and analytics can be accommodated by EIQ Products™-based solutions.
