Kalido Speeds Time to Value With Information Engine Version 9.0Latest Release Simplifies Warehouse Architecture, Accelerates Time to Value and Delivers Faster Overall Load Performance
October 03, 2011
— Kalido, the leading independent provider of business-driven data
governance solutions, announced today Kalido(R) Information
Engine(TM) 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
— 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
