I’ve worked with the Kalido heritage products since the late nineties. Sometimes I’m asked how being part of Magnitude has helped our products like Magnitude DIW and Magnitude MDM.

Fear or Greed: What’s Driving Your Information Management?

Lately we’ve been spending a fair amount of time talking to banks and investment firms about their information management challenges. One industry insider recently summed it all up for me by stating that organizations in this industry are motivated by one of two things – fear or greed. It might sound a bit crass, but that’s not a bad thing and I think it reflects the reality of the market we all, not just banks and investment firms, operate in.
