Kalido Expands Community and Networking Without the Travel

Customers, Partners Increase Productivity, Education and Kalido Knowledge From Comfort of Their Desks

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) -

  • Kalido, a leading provider of information management software for enterprise data governance, today announced the continued availability of the content from Kalido Connect 2009, the company's annual conference, as well as new facilities to deliver Kalido's multi-day training courses online.
  • In the current economic environment, organizations have significantly reduced travel budgets, forcing employees to forgo valuable training and networking opportunities that could make them more efficient and effective employees. As a result, Kalido is providing alternative means of accessing these same opportunities without the time and costs of travel.
  • As part of this initiative, the content from Kalido Connect will remain available online until January 4, 2010. The hugely successful conference, which has already had an attendance in excess of seven times last year's in-person conference, includes sessions discussing best practice techniques, new product developments and customer-led case studies.
