IAP%20Small.jpg dataupia%20logo.jpg

John O'Brien CTO and Co-founder of Dataupia is up briefing the Independent Analyst Platform. John is highlighting three of the differences that the Dataupia Satori brings to the market.

1. Non-disruptive
2. Continuously scalable
3. Highly cost effective

Another upside to Dataupia is that it is a very "green machine"
The ideal market for Dataupia is right in the mainstream data warehousing space ODS, routine business intelligence and long term data needs arena.

John is sharing the 36 month plan for the company and it looks good. Dataupia got its early traction in the telco market working with firms like Subex, Sendio, Tektronix and others. The massive amounts of Call Data Records (CDR) records collected by the telcom industry makes them a great fit for an appliance solution like Satori Server.

Lastly, the aim of Dataupia isn't to come in and "rip and replace" your existing database installation the appliance is actually designed to site next/over your existing architecture and add power to what you already have. The upside here is that you don't waste money by tossing out what you have and as you scale the Satori Server environment you see significant cost savings over the traditional route of upgrading Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server.

Bill Hewitt, President and CEO, Kalido started his presentation with a quote that he said in October 2006. It sets the stage for the core value proposition that Kalido is delivering in the industry.

“In the future, information will be delivered as a service, where information producers, information consumers, and information managers will create, consume and distribute information in near real-time.”

The Kalido Information Engine:
Kalido Business Information Modeler
• Patent-pending, gesture-based modeling speeds model development
• Multiple interface layers for business, data architects and operations
Kalido Universal Information Director
Kalido Dynamic Information Warehouse

• Robust enterprise functionality automates and streamlines warehouse deployment
• Flexible business model-driven warehouse manages and tracks all changes to data
• Seamless integration to multiple Business Intelligence Platforms
• 100% wizard-driven, allows report changes in hours instead of days
Kalido Master Data Management
• Business-model-driven, subject-area-independent MDM
• Customizable work flow, web-services based API and reporting tables for easy integration

Kalido delivers a shared business model that can be understood by all sides, the information providers, consumers and the administrators/managers in between.

They are showing how the MDM system works, its nice that they have distilled a mission critical function to a simple and intuitive UI, being that I am more a business person if I get it then it must be simple.

This is my first time seeing Kalido in action. I am impressed.

Roger Hodskins, Vice President, Marketing and Alliances for Lumigent is covering the world of compliance and audits. Lumigent specializes in Enterprise Database Auditing And Real-Time Protection. The core strategy they employ is to Discover, Assess, Monitor, Alert/Report, Secure data centric to compliance and regulatory issues.

The product line up includes Lumigent® Audit DB™, a unified solution for data auditing, security policy management, and database assessment. The solution delivers audit of information access and use, and identifies security weaknesses. And Lumigent® Log Explorer® , a transaction analysis and data recovery solution for SQL Server.

With the way data is spreading across the enterprise I don't think that simple policy based strategies are ever going to solve the compliance issue for companies with significant data. It seems that an automated software based solution is basically madatory for any large company.
