Kalido-Heritage Products and Magnitude Software

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. One of the first examples was using the Noetix METL connectors to automatically build the semantic layer for some of the business intelligence tools. We used to use another method to do this that we had to pay extra for and didn’t fully control. If a customer asked us to change something, we had to raise the issue with the provider we used and then were at the mercy of their schedule to implement it (and in the worst case, sometimes denied the request). Fast forward to using METL, we now control the end to end process and could take advantage of other BI tools that METL supports in the future. Read more
