Kalido Connects With Customers on the Path to Data Governance

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/10 --

  • Kalido, the leading independent provider of data governance solutions, today announced more details about Kalido Connect 2010, a virtual conference being held on December 7, 2010. With hundreds of participants already registered and attendance expected to be over 500, Kalido Connect will deliver thought leadership, best practices and business innovation with the debut of the Kalido Data Governance Director.

  • This year's conference focuses on helping companies manage data as a shared enterprise asset by supporting the business process of data management.

    • Kalido CEO Bill Hewitt will discuss how the business process of data management will affect the world economy over the next decade, including the impact on virtualization, mobile computing and the shrinking role of enterprise applications in the workplace.

    • A major highlight of the conference will be a first look at Kalido's highly anticipated new product, the Kalido Data Governance Director, which is designed to operationalize data governance programs through data policy management.

  • Kalido Connect 2010 also features a record number of end user speakers, including participants from GE Treasury, Imperial Tobacco Group, Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Endo-Surgery, MarketStar, Navistar, Univision and Visa Europe.

    • A panel of end users will discuss how they have developed a more policy-centric approach to data governance and organized their programs in terms of organization, process and technology. They'll discuss what "success" looks like, the barriers that they encountered along the way (and how they overcame them), the role technology plays, and the value that data governance is delivering to their organization.

    • Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Endo-Surgery will showcase how it is competing more effectively by using their data warehouse to improve sales and marketing effectiveness.

    • MarketStar will demonstrate how it is serving its customers better by delivering a robust and agile information management platform.

  • Content has been specially prepared by Kalido executives, consultants, customers and partners to address both technical and business audiences interested in multiple dimensions of data management, including data governance, data warehousing, business intelligence and master data management.

  • The Kalido Connect virtual conference provides attendees with a cutting-edge platform for networking, exhibition, collaboration and learning without the time, expense and hassle of travel.

    • Attendees can watch a presentation in a packed auditorium, network with peers in the Kalido Connect Lounge, or visit fully interactive sponsor booths on the exhibit floor, all at no cost to them.

    • Gold level sponsors include Netezza, QlikTech, Streebo and Trillium Software.
