Kalido and Teradata Accelerate Data Warehouse Deployment

Joint solution provides customers with ability to build or expand data warehouses in 90 days or less for improved analytics

At the TDWI World Conference in Chicago today, Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the leading analytic data solutions company and Kalido, the leading provider of agile information management software, announced a new pre-packaged solution enabling customers to build or expand a data warehouse in 90 days or less. The integrated data warehouse can then offer improved analytics supporting the best business decision possible.



“Being able to extend the value of a data warehouse investment is critical to any organization that is trying to consolidate disparate data into a single, integrated platform,” said Ed White, Appliances general manager, Teradata. “The Kalido technology not only makes the data consolidation process seamless and streamlined, but also lets the customer add new functional areas very quickly, and that’s where a company gains the incremental value of an integrated data warehouse.”


With the combination of a Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance and Kalido® Information Engine™, businesses are able to rapidly deploy new subject areas in a scalable, powerful data warehouse creating increased analytical capability. With this joint solution, customers can:

  • Slash information management costs by migrating multiple data marts onto a consolidated platform. Kalido’s migration accelerators significantly automate and speed these data mart consolidation and migration efforts.
  • Compound the positive returns on Teradata data warehouse platform investments by quickly integrating new data or subject areas into the platform. With Kalido® Information Engine™, customers can automatically convert existing data models into Kalido Business Information Models, which speeds the process and delivers an agile foundation for growth.

“We’ve already seen the value of Kalido on Teradata at the enterprise level. By taking advantage of our latest release, Teradata appliance customers will be able to design, build and deploy an agile information foundation faster than ever before,” said Bill Hewitt, president and chief executive officer, Kalido. “At a price point for hardware and software below five hundred thousand dollars, we are giving customers enterprise-class functionality at a fraction of the cost.”
