Morganville, NJ (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
Acxius Strategic Consulting, a management consulting and systems integration company, and Kalido, the active information management company, today announced a partnership to deliver faster ROI on business intelligence (BI) and master data management (MDM) projects. As part of this relationship, Acxius will combine its set of industry best practices with the Kalido Information Engine to significantly reduce implementation time and allow organizations to achieve greater business value.
Acxius' best practices consist of an implementation framework -- rules and best practices for managing data and information in an era of continuous economic change. Making data changes in today's environment involves mastering data and information strategy and planning, metadata management, data quality, data warehousing, CRM and SCM, and technology program management, among other data and information management disciplines. Acxius shows how to integrate these technologies with the Kalido Information Engine™ into smart cost-effective change management practices using best practices.
The Kalido Information Engine is a suite of products that that gives customers the ability to manage their entire BI infrastructure. Unlike traditional approaches, the Kalido Information Engine drives information management from a business model, thereby putting control in the hands of the business, while satisfying the strict data management requirements of IT. In particular, Kalido Master Data Management supports data governance initiatives with its intrinsic support for data stewardship functions, robust workflows and multiple master data types, including customer, product, financial, supplier, and more.
"Information Management projects have a reputation for over promising and under delivering," said Bill Hewitt, president and CEO of Kalido. "By combining Kalido's flexible technology solutions with Acxius' industry best practices, our customers can achieve real business value quickly and build a long-term platform for cost-effective business intelligence."
"We are pleased to extend our services to those clients with master data management needs through this exciting new partnership," says Biswa Bhattacharya, Founder and CEO of Acxius. "With Kalido's proven business intelligence and master data management platform, and Acxius' systems integration expertise, together we will enable customers to gain more cost-effective and efficient data analysis, thus making them more effective organizations."
