Gartner BI Summit
-- Netezza Corporation (NYSE Arca: NZ) and Kalido today announced a
strategic partnership to deliver high-performance data warehouse solutions
in an automated and flexible BI architecture with a low total cost of
ownership (TCO). Large enterprises now have access to the market-leading
performance of Netezza coupled with Kalido's flexible, fully governed data warehouse software. Under the terms of the
partnership, Kalido will release a version of its award-winning Kalido?
Information Engine(TM) that will be certified to run on Netezza appliances.
-- As part of the partnership, Netezza and Kalido will collaborate to
develop industry-specific solutions to meet key business requirements
across a number of industries, including life sciences, financial services
and consumer packaged goods. These solutions will be based on the best
practices of both companies and delivered with pre-built models, load
processes and dashboards.
-- The Kalido Information Engine is the industry's most advanced
and comprehensive platform for design, development and operation of well-governed data
warehouses. Kalido's Business Information Modeler provides
collaboration between IT and business users to deliver up to the minute
business requirements and ensure end-to-end consistency of data

-- Joint customers will significantly reduce the time and effort needed to
build a data warehouse: Netezza automates much of the database
administration activities, such as hardware configuration and tuning, while
Kalido automates much of the development, such as physical schema
management, data load, exception management, integrated master data
management and BI configuration.
-- In addition, the solution can quickly meet new business requirements for
joint customers: Netezza scales out to handle new data sets, while Kalido's
automation and flexibility reduce the cost of implementing enhancements by
