Inmon Data Systems Awards Kalido First DW 2.0 Certification.

"Father of Data Warehousing" Recognizes Kalido as First Enterprise Information Management Software to Comply with Future Data Warehousing Requirements

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Kalido, the active information management company, announced that it is the first company to achieve DW 2.0-certification from data warehousing luminary Bill Inmon, president of Inmon Data Systems. Trademarked by Inmon, DW 2.0[TM] outlines the definition of the future architecture of data warehousing under strict new parameters, marking a significant shift from the traditional static data warehouses and legacy descriptions. Kalido's certification validates the company's innovative software, which enables organizations to rapidly respond to business requirements regardless of how quickly and often they might change.

"'Data warehouse' has become a catch-all phrase open to interpretation and misuse," said Bill Inmon, president of Inmon Data Systems. "As a result, many data warehouses fail to address the key tenets of data warehousing and are simply unable to consistently meet the needs of business users. Kalido has consistently defied the norm by providing a flexible solution that addresses the most important data warehousing principles. That flexibility is key to enabling organizations to build effective data warehouses that generate tangible business results, even as business and environmental requirements change. It is only fitting that Kalido be the first company certified as DW 2.0-compliant."

Developed to address the growing confusion about the data warehousing, DW 2.0 is the first industry definition of the architecture of data warehousing - a concise, clear description of what a modern data warehouse should look like. The new, trademarked DW 2.0 certification will be awarded to those companies and products that exhibit the qualities and features of the four primary pillars of DW 2.0. These pillars are:

* Recognition of the data life cycle

* Inclusion and integration of both structured and unstructured data

* Inclusion of metadata as a vital component

* Foundation flexibility to accommodate changing business and environmental requirements

By providing solutions that enable organizations to turn the influx of corporate data into actionable information, Kalido will help effectively address both current and future business needs.

"Bill Inmon's DW 2.0 addresses a long-standing issue in today's data warehousing industry - how the data warehouse can play a crucial role in delivering business value,'" said Bill Hewitt, CEO of Kalido. "Kalido is dedicated to delivering solutions that make static information and inflexible architecture a thing of the past. We are thrilled to be the first DW 2.0 certified solution and look forward to helping our global customers thrive in this new era of active information management."
