Kalido, an agile information management software provider, has released an update to its 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 can 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.

  • Reduced risk: IT teams can improve governance and overall standardization by implementing standards during consolidation.

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 can improve data consistency and use of personnel as shadow data marts become unnecessary, and IT teams can 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 www.kalido.com/business-modeling-community.htm. Additional information is available at www.kalido.com.
