Past News Releases


Inmon Consulting recently named Kalido the first company and product to achieve DW 2.0 certification. Kalido’s active information management software allows a data warehouse to be built on a foundation of technology in which the foundation can be rapidly and easily changed to meet business requirements. Kalido stands alone in its ability to deliver a flexible solution that enables the data warehouse to keep up with the rapid pace and ever-changing nature of business. As a result, it has consistently drawn attention and support from some of the largest and most prestigious organizations in the industry.

DW 2.0 is the definition of the future architecture of data warehousing. Since there is no legally protected definition of data warehousing, different vendors and consulting firms reshape the concept of data warehousing to fit their own interpretation and capabilities. Because of this vendor and consulting influence, there is great confusion as to what a data warehouse is or is not. In 2005, Bill Inmon specified the new definition of what a data warehouse should be. That definition is found on the Web site http://www.inmoncif.com. In addition, Inmon took out trademark protection on the term DW 2.0 so that it could not be used by vendors and consultants in an inappropriate way.

There are four primary pillars of DW 2.0:

  • The recognition that data passes through a life cycle as it enters the data warehouse.
  • The inclusion of unstructured data into the data warehouse, integrated with structured data.
  • The inclusion of metadata as a component of the data warehouse.
  • The building of the data warehouse on a technological foundation that can be changed as business and environmental requirements change.

Kalido has innovative technology that underlies a data warehouse and allows the data warehouse to change as business and environmental requirements change. As such, Kalido becomes one of the cornerstone technologies for the building of the data warehouse for the future.

In addition, Kalido’s Active Information Management software includes master data management (MDM) technology that supports data warehousing and business intelligence.
