Kalido Debuts Agile Hierarchy and Rule Management Solution

New Solution Delivers Greater Flexibility and Agility as Well as the Ability to Quickly and Easily Apply Sophisticated Rules Management for Enterprise Data Warehouses

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

  • Kalido, the leading independent provider of data governance solutions, today announced the availability of a new Hierarchy and Rule Management solution. The model-driven solution enables customers to maximize their existing enterprise data warehouse implementations by giving business users greater access to and control of critical business information.

  • Many organizations face complex information management challenges due to acquisitions, third-party data sources or regional/divisional requirements. Successful enterprise data warehouses may alleviate many of these challenges; however, differences in business rules, hierarchies or business definitions can make such data warehouses less effective than they otherwise could be.

  • Based on the capabilities of Kalido® Master Data Management™, the new hierarchy and rule management solution delivers greater control to business users over their critical business information, enabling them to make better, faster decisions.

Kalido Hierarchy and Rule Management Solution

  • With the Kalido Hierarchy and Rule Management solution, business users can gain more timely and granular control over the business rules and hierarchies that govern the data held within the data warehouse.

  • Using the power of the Kalido business information model, business users will have the ability to create new rules, change existing rules, audit and approve all changes while maintaining a history of changes made.

    • Business users can more easily bring context to rules and assume ownership of creating and maintaining hierarchies for rapid analysis and business management.

    • Rules and hierarchies are visible to business users rather than buried in complex IT code, enhancing consistency and accuracy.

    • Self-service for business means less maintenance and custom code development by IT support staff.


Michael Ray Hawkins, senior director, business intelligence, Comcast Corporation:

  • "By serving as a central repository, our Teradata-based National Data Warehouse delivers us the business information we need for decision support. The new Kalido Hierarchy and Rules Management solution will allow our Finance team to create new rules, change existing rules, audit and approve all changes while maintaining a history of changes made, all without requiring direct IT intervention."

Bill Hewitt, president and CEO, Kalido, said:

  • "Enterprise data warehouses can provide significant value by centralizing information across the organization, and our newest solution gives customers an even better way to reconcile, change and audit the rules and hierarchies. Kalido's Hierarchy and Rules Management solution complements the EDW to better govern the business information used for decision support."
