Tamino is definitely not for the company that wants to conserve money it's for the company that wants to do big stuff (hence all the UDDI, DSML, webDAV, SOAP that comes out of them), also probably for any company that's already got a lot invested in adabas, the problem with any database is you can't just pay money, you've got to pay the time too. That said if you mean you want to install it, run a query against it and get a result back within an hour(which is not especially useful, who knows how difficult it is after that first step) I'd recommend the following for ease of "getting acquainted": Ipedo http://www.ipedo.com/ Textml http://www.ixiasoft.com/ (Windows specific) and I'd say xyzfind but they were acquired by interwoven and I don't know what's up with them now.
