Kalido founder, Andy Hayler, to discuss role of enterprise data warehousing in achieving successful corporate performance management at C-View Summit in Madrid, Spain

Kalido Sponsors Inaugural Event Devoted to Corporate Performance Management Agenda for Senior Management

BURLINGTON, Mass. & LONDON, UK, May 11, 2006 -- Kalido, the leading provider of adaptive enterprise data warehousing and master data management software, announced that Andy Hayler, Kalido's founder and chief strategist, will present at the "C-View Summit: Corporate Performance Management" event in Madrid, Spain on May 16 at 10:00 am. The presentation will discuss the many challenges that global organizations face in managing their corporate performance, and how some companies are addressing those challenges to achieve the coveted "single view" throughout business change. Kalido is also a sponsor of the event, which takes place May 16-17 at The Park Hyatt hotel.

Hayler's presentation will highlight the finance department's role in achieving alignment between business and IT. He will advocate the adoption of a "data-driven" approach to business, where senior financial executives understand the origin and impact of data from a business perspective, empowering them to make the right strategic decisions necessary to lead the organization effectively. Hayler will explore the need for flexible, business model-driven IT solutions to achieve accountability, minimize costs and address compliance issues.

In discussing the problems traditionally inherent in ensuring the accuracy of management information in complex, global businesses, Hayler will draw upon real-life examples of projects within some of the world's largest companies. He will showcase how these organizations have overcome those challenges and how senior management support is critical to executing an efficient data management strategy.

As part of the best practice discussion, particular attention will be paid to the role of business processes and key lessons for implementing and maintaining an efficient, flexible and business rule-driven data warehouse. The presentation will also explain how an iterative approach - tackling projects in bite-sized chunks - can aid the rapid delivery of a fully functional system and realize immediate business benefits.

The C-View Summit is designed for senior level executives, who meet to discuss business and IT strategies through networking, solution briefings, boardroom-style sessions and roundtable discussions. More information about the event can be found at:
