Kalido Speeds Time to Value With Information Engine Version 9.0

Latest Release Simplifies Warehouse Architecture, Accelerates Time to Value and Delivers Faster Overall Load Performance

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Teradata PARTNERS Conference --

  • Kalido, the leading independent provider of business-driven data governance solutions, announced today Kalido® Information Engine™ version 9.0. The new release dramatically improves the speed at which customers can integrate and structure critical business information, delivering the most agile information management platform on the market today.

  • The data warehouse market has exploded in recent years with technologies that claim to deliver data to companies faster. Unfortunately, just as with traditional data warehouses, these systems take years to become fully productive. As a result, business process owners are left waiting for critical information and often resort to "rogue" solutions that are incomplete, waste time, money and often deliver inaccurate information.

  • The latest release of the Kalido Information Engine combines speed with automation, all driven by a business information model that translates business requirements into business information faster than ever before.

    • With greater automation and a more than 65 percent reduction in data integration efforts, this release delivers value faster and at lower cost than any competitive solution.

    • Business agility is greatly enhanced by the user-friendly interface and a flexible model-based architecture that evolves as business requirements change without the need for costly re-designs and impact analysis.

  • Version 9.0 expands the level of automation throughout the platform, dramatically improving time to value by simplifying the types and numbers of tools needed to manage the overall environment. Other significant improvements include:

    • Simplifying the warehouse architecture. With version 9.0, the Kalido Information Engine can now control and automate all components of the warehouse architecture -- from landing zone to business intelligence metadata. This includes native integration with leading analytic platforms such as IBM Cognos, Microsoft SSAS, QlikView and SAP BusinessObjects and the ability to connect with others such as Microstrategy, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and SAS.

    • Accelerating time to value. New business-model-driven data integration features automate ETL activities significantly reducing -- and in some cases, eliminating -- the need for separate, purpose-built data integration tools.

    • Delivering faster overall load performance. A new unified load controller manages all data loading, increases load performance, and extends suspense management capabilities to all types of loads including reference data and transactions.

  • Kalido gives customers the ability to rapidly develop and deploy a high quality foundation for data analytics in 90 days or less. The only platform with fully integrated master data management and built-in Business Intelligence integration, the Kalido Information Engine manages metadata through the business information model to provide a lasting platform that is easy to dynamically maintain for future business changes.

Lou Guy, assistant vice president of application development at Pacer International, said:

  • "The business can't afford to wait 12-18 months for a data warehouse to come online. With Kalido, we can consistently deliver high-impact capabilities to the business in 90 days or less. This is a key paradigm shift from conventional ETL-based data warehousing."

Bill Hewitt, CEO at Kalido, said:

  • "Managing information effectively is paramount for companies of any size in today's competitive world economy. This latest release tackles some of the biggest issues with agility -- automating manual efforts, reducing overall costs and minimizing time to business value. Kalido delivers the only platform that can manage the entire process, from modeling to loading to BI integration. As a result, companies can reduce or eliminate their investment in traditional tools, lower their cost of managing information and free up more cash for strategic investments."
