Kalido and Teradata Deliver Fast Data Warehouses Faster

Combination of Automation, Agility and Performance Result in Unmatched Speed, Greater Responsiveness and Lower Costs

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) - Teradata Partners Conference, Booth #221

  • Kalido, the leading independent provider of data governance solutions, and Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the world's largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, today announced the availability of the Kalido® Information Engine™ on the Teradata® platform. The Kalido Information Engine on Teradata combines the implementation speed enabled by Kalido's business-model-driven information engine with Teradata's market-leading, high-performance data warehouse solutions to deliver fast data warehouses faster than ever before.

Kalido on Teradata -- Delivering Fast Data Warehouses Faster

  • The Kalido Information Engine leverages Kalido's business-model-driven approach to capture user requirements faster with ultimate agility. Kalido's highly automated solution reduces the need for custom code, lowering both implementation and operating costs.

  • Teradata's active data warehousing technology enables organizations to maximize capacity by delivering an extremely fast, high-performance data warehouse, making it easy to keep pace with increasingly complex data warehouse workloads.

  • The release of the Kalido Information Engine on Teradata has been specially designed to take advantage of Teradata's high-performance capabilities.

    • In initial Kalido tests, transactions were loaded more than three times faster on Teradata than on a comparable Oracle database and more than 14 times faster than on a comparable SQL Server database.

  • In addition, the combined solution delivers on the promise of an agile data warehousing environment by:

    • Enabling rapid prototyping to allow stronger collaboration between IT and the business

    • Reducing the effort and time required for change management

  • With the Kalido Information Engine on Teradata, organizations can address a wider range of requirements while keeping up with the growing analytical information demands of data-driven, fast-paced businesses. For example, customers can now better address:

    • Requirements for a new data warehouse: Rapidly deliver and deploy a data warehouse on a cost-effective Teradata platform

    • New requirements for an existing data warehouse: Rapidly capture new business requirements to augment an existing data warehouse, delivering greater responsiveness to business needs and significantly reducing the time to implement changes in those requirements

    • Local geography / departmental requirements: Deploy local warehouses that rely on the enterprise data warehouse for core data, but also need to quickly and easily incorporate local or non-EDW data to meet specific requirements without sacrificing global corporate standards

  • The Kalido Information Engine on Teradata is immediately available for customer evaluation and will be generally available in November.


Mark Beyer, research vice president, Gartner, said:

  • "The increasingly complex and changing data types coupled with explosive data growth demands that data warehouse architectures must adapt ever more quickly. Metadata driven tools for integration, models and even sourcing of the architecture are significant contributors to the highest levels of warehouse agility. Tools which can manage and deliver versions in all areas of the architecture raise the warehouse from being just a big IT project toward becoming a nimble, competitive differentiator."

David Klumb, vice president, Teradata Global Professional Services, said:

  • "Teradata customers thrive on speed -- and they get it every day with the Teradata platform. With Kalido on Teradata that speed becomes dynamic power for implementation and change."

Bill Hewitt, president and CEO, Kalido, said:

  • "Our initial discussions with customers and prospects have shown us that the demand for Kalido on Teradata is very high. Our customers want to build their data warehouses right, but they also want to build them fast. This solution helps them do both without requiring an army of consultants and extra resources that they might not have."
