Kalido Extends Data Governance Reach With New CapabilitiesLatest Release of Kalido(R) Data Governance Director(TM) Widens Data Governance Participation Empowering the Organization to Increase the Value of Its Data Assets
November 18, 2011
— Kalido, the leading independent provider of business-driven data
governance solutions, today announced the latest release of the
Kalido(R) Data Governance Director(TM), which drives broader
organizational participation to improve program success.
— The new release enables anyone in the organization to quickly and
easily raise data issues.
— New policy requirements or updates can be tracked through issues
logged by users anywhere in the organization.
— Raised issues can now be tracked from the time they are raised all
the way to resolution.
— In a recent Kalido survey, 75% of respondents said they have no means
to raise issues with bad data they encounter in their day to day jobs.
This inability to fix data issues—particularly persistent,
recurring data issues—can significantly impact the effectiveness of
core business processes.
Democratizing Data Governance
— The latest release provides an instant, easy to use way to report data
issues through a new web-based interface that can be easily embedded
into any application or employee portal.
— Issues are automatically routed to data owners according to role and
responsibility for triage and remediation. Automated monitoring tracks
the progress of each issue.
— Triage is determined based on the owners of the data, system or
business process most affected by the issue.
— Kalido’s new capabilities bypass the need for a single triage
owner responsible for routing all data issues—typically found
in issue management systems—eliminating a critical bottleneck
and enabling fast resolution.
AMore Strategic Approach
— Today’s budding data governance programs too often rely on manual
orchestration to resolve data issues due to a lack of process-specific
solutions to manage this time-consuming process. Kalido Data
Governance Director automates and streamlines this time-intensive
approach, operationalizing the program and minimizing manual effort.
— In addition, the latest release provides insight into issues logged—
allowing governance teams to view and analyze similar issues across
the organization. As governance teams analyze emerging data patterns,
they can identify the need for new or updated policies to address
recurring issues more proactively.
Bill Hewitt, CEO at Kalido, said:
— “Governance teams know that to add value to the business process
owners that consume data they have to do whatever it takes to improve
data quality. Until now, these teams have had to do this manually or
use tools ill-suited for this effort. By providing a level of process
support that can be deployed across the organization, Kalido is giving
these programs a fighting chance of not only fixing—but improving
data governance across the enterprise.”
