Graphically create, share, and maintain business information models

The Kalido Business Information Modeler is a powerful approach to designing, deploying and maintaining your data warehouse and master data management infrastructure.

Instead of modeling data and their structures, the Business Information Modeler enables you to model the actual parts of your business – customers, products, assets, transactions, even people – and define how you view the information in business terms, not technical ones. As a result, IT and their business counterparts can easily collaborate and communicate on the requirements for reporting, analyzing and managing information across the enterprise. And, the business information model documents everything that is in the warehouse, so your business users will always know what’s available to them.

The business information model is a fast and easy way to start your information management journey. It is easy and fun to use, and enables you to iteratively define your requirements. Rather than requiring a complete model of the entire enterprise-wide set of requirements before deploying the warehouse, Kalido Business Information Modeler allows you to start small, iterate, and deploy in increments. This enables you to rapidly get information in the hands of your business users and make any necessary adjustments as you go. This approach reduces project risk and ensures you deliver value rapidly.

When you’re ready to deploy your model, simply press the button and Kalido’s data warehouse automation generates the entire infrastructure, with the model controlling everything from the staging area out to popular BI tool metadata. The Kalido Business Information Modeler also generates the MDM repository with the data relationships and business rules that define valid master and reference data.

Forrester Wave: Master Data Management

Delivering clean, accurate, and consistent master data
is critical for efficient business processes.

But it isn’t enough to simply get clean data – you need to keep it clean, too. And the best way to keep data clean is to proactively engage the people who know the most about the data in the process.

Forrester, a leading independent technology and market research company, has cited Kalido MDM as a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management Solutions, Q1 2016. According to the Forrester Wave report author, Senior Analyst Michele Goetz, “The Kalido MDM tool makes master data management (MDM) easy for data stewards and subject matter experts (SME).”
