Latest Release of Kalido(R) Information Engine(TM) Eliminates Data Mart Migration and Consolidation Hassles

Ability to Automatically Translate Existing Data Models, Taxonomies and Glossaries Into Business Information Models Dramatically Reduces Time and Cost

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/12 --

News Facts

  • Today, Kalido, the leading provider of agile information management software, unveiled the latest release of the Kalido® Information Engine™ that helps companies slash the time for data mart migrations and consolidations.
  • Companies have invested significant resources in their logical data models, taxonomies and glossaries. With this new release, customers will be able to exploit existing logical and physical models and taxonomies to build a new more agile data warehouse, delivering three key benefits:
    • Cost savings: Existing assets are re-used rather than recreated, with automated consolidation and migration tasks that reduce resource requirements.
    • Speed: Automation enables reverse engineering, accelerating conversion to a business information model and providing an agile data foundation for analytics. Existing models can be converted in hours instead of weeks.
    • Risk reduction: IT teams can improve governance and overall standardization by implementing standards during consolidation.

New Release Enables Both IT and Business to Share Control

  • According to Gartner, "CIOs should be aware that data marts will emerge continuously in the organization. They should advise the business intelligence and data warehouse teams to plan for ongoing data mart consolidation and demand that a strategy for accomplishing it is in place." ("Data Warehousing Trends for the CIO, 2011-2012," M. Beyer, D. Feinberg, R. Edjlali, 27 January 2011)
  • Organizations seeking to migrate or consolidate their data marts onto new platforms will benefit from greater control in both business and IT environments:
    • Business teams improve data consistency and use of personnel as shadow data marts become unnecessary.
    • IT teams forge a continuous link from business requirements all the way through to data warehouse-driven reports and analytics.
  • Companies can download the business modeling component of the Kalido Information Engine for free at http://www.kalido.com/business-modeling-community.htm

Supporting Quotes

Ralph Hughes, chief systems architect, Ceregenics, said:

  • "What's the value of yet another data warehouse in a large company? If you can't consolidate existing BI applications and retire the legacy systems, your maintenance and operations costs are only going to go up. Kalido's migration accelerators place all the requirements and design knowledge formerly locked in those legacy warehouses into the 'consolidation hopper,' giving companies a straightforward means to merge designs, meta data, and data in a single effort, allowing us to drive toward much more economical and intelligible total operating models for our enterprise business intelligence solutions."

Bill Hewitt, president and CEO of Kalido, said:

  • "This new release delivers something the market has been wanting for years. By automating the migration process, we can breathe new life into old data warehouses and at the same time help customers consolidate existing marts faster and more efficiently than ever before. It clearly extends our market leadership as the only vendor providing agility and cost efficiency at the same time."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
