In developing its product offerings, Informata.com will incorporate technologies and products from ibooks.com (http://www.ibooks.com), a provider of customized solutions for online e-book access and viewing, and DigitalOwl (http://www.digitalowl.com), a provider of secure digital packaging, marketing, and syndication of premium information content.
