May 8, 2008, Chicopee, MA – Apatar, Inc., the leading provider of open source software tools for the data integration market, today officially announced the CDYNE Demographics connector for the Apatar Open Source Data Integration toolset. The new connector delivers statistical data about customers and allows organizations to identify the ethnic and socio-economic makeup of their current customer base or purchased marketing lists.
