Trillium Software and Collibra Integrate Data Governance and Data Quality Offerings to Improve Data Accountability and Business Process

Alliance Enables Organizations to Leverage Data as an Enterprise-Wide Asset

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and a leading provider of Total Data Qualitysolutions, and Collibra, a leading provider of data governance software, today announced an alliance to address the demand for data governance initiatives and enable customers of both companies to leverage data as a strategic enterprise asset. 

In today's competitive environment, organizations are looking for new ways to increase revenue from existing customers. As the definition of a customer varies from one part of the organization to another, business managers are demanding a more unified view in order to better understand customer needs, gain trust and sustain retention. By combining data governance and data quality management toolsets, organizations can create both a contextual and holistic view of the data to drive business process improvement, reduce operational costs, improve customer retention while increasing revenue.

"Data Quality, master data management and regulatory compliance are driving the demand for data governance projects today and yet the lack of effective data governance is one of the main reasons why these very initiatives fail," said Benny Verhaeghe, vice president of sales & marketing at Collibra. "By combining Trillium Software's best-of-breed data quality solutions with Collibra's leading data governance software, we can together provide customers with a powerful integrated solution for data quality management."

The integration between the Trillium Software System® and Collibra's Data Governance Center will enable customers to add policies to business rules management by business stakeholders. This will make data profiling results more easily accessible by business people and provide traceability between business rules, data assets, systems and business definitions, as well as address issue management resolution. Unlike similar offerings from platform vendors, the alliance provides customers with a focused solution and eliminates the need to buy additional products and services.

"The impact of data governance has made data quality more relevant than ever to the business user, who requires increased accessibility and visibility into data and information," said David Pietropaolo, vice president of global alliances at Trillium Software. "By combining Collibra's Data Governance Center with our solution, customers can continuously control, improve and achieve the benefits of having high quality data and information to drive better results for their business processes."

The product integration connector between the Collibra Data Governance Center 4 and the Trillium Software System is already complete. To learn more about the alliance please visit
