QlikTech and Kalido Partner to Provide Answers, Not Reports

Innovative BI Companies Combine Strengths to Deliver the World's Fastest, Most Flexible, Business-Model-Driven BI Infrastructure

TORONTO--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - TDWI BI Symposium, Booth #5 -- Kalido (http://www.kalido.com/), the active information management company, and QlikTech (http://www.qlikview.com/), recognized as the world's fastest growing business intelligence (BI) software vendor, today announced a formal agreement to deliver a fully integrated information management and business intelligence solution. The integrated solution will provide companies with up-to-the minute accuracy of business performance, and enable them to respond to business changes with unrivalled agility.

The combination of QlikTech's associative analysis technology and Kalido's unique business-model-driven information engine offers end-to-end, enterprise-class BI that can be deployed and adapted with unprecedented speed.

As part of the agreement, Kalido and QlikTech plan to deliver seamless integration between the companies' products by the end of September 2008. Joint customers are already seeing the benefits of using the two products together through a custom-integrated solution that is available today from Kalido.

For Kalido customers, QlikTech provides an intuitive, visual way to analyze the data managed by Kalido. For QlikTech customers, Kalido provides a robust, enterprise-ready information management capability. The combination of the products forms the fastest, most flexible solution for building enterprise information management platforms today.
