"A number of our clients find that information about their business, customers and products is not always easily accessible or reportable - a problem that becomes even more complex and time consuming as their businesses change," said Robert Haddad, senior vice president at Project Performance Corporation. "That's why we recommend Kalido. Implementing Kalido as a company's information foundation means our customers are able to report on the state of their businesses with confidence, leveraging truly accurate information to drive business results. This latest version of Kalido Dynamic Information Warehouse takes that one step further, with improved usability and new features that increase automation and enable quicker data warehouse delivery and maintenance."
The new version delivers a range of enhancements that empower customers with consistent, accurate information to feed enterprise BI applications. The new user interface reduces ramp-up time and includes significant performance improvements in data loading, staging area management and suspense processing. In addition, the latest version supports the Kalido Business Information Modeler (see separate news release), which fosters a collaborative union between business users and IT professionals to accelerate the delivery of information through pioneering visual modeling capabilities.
"The demand for providing consistent data has introduced new challenges as silos of static data models and BI systems were not designed to unify and model information across the enterprise," said Mark Smith, CEO & executive vice president, Research at Ventana Research. "Kalido Dynamic Information Warehouse provides a dynamic and interactive set of modeling, integration and collaboration capabilities that help leverage BI and RDBMS investments."
Unlike traditional data warehouse approaches, Kalido DIW easily accommodates business change by enabling users to incrementally build on existing data models, rather than go through the time-consuming and costly process of re-designing, re-architecting and re-building. Additionally, robust history tracking capabilities provide a bulletproof audit trail critical in today's compliance-aware environment.
New features and enhancements in Kalido DIW include:
-- Improved look and feel - Optimized screens based on user testing enhance user productivity, making users more productive, faster.
-- Increased scalability -- Extended support for very large dimensions, including new features to help customers minimize implementation time and cost.
-- Enhanced staging area management capabilities - New wizard-generated "feeds" define how staging tables are loaded, reducing the need for separately-defined ETL programs.
-- New reference data loader - an end-to-end loader that operates in conjunction with the staging tables and leverages the power of the underlying database server for enhanced processing performance.
-- New suspense processing capabilities - non-conforming data can be automatically routed to suspense tables where errors can be quickly identified and rectified.
"With this latest release, we are dramatically enhancing the value customers can receive, regardless of which BI platform they choose to deploy," said Bill Hewitt, president and CEO of Kalido. "Kalido has delivered on this promise hundreds of times, and with this latest release, we are well poised to dramatically expand the use - and business value - of Kalido around the world."
