Kalido is one of the few software companies that was developed by an end-user organization to solve a specific business problem. Developed as an IT project inside Shell, Kalido was born out of the challenge of analyzing and reporting corporate performance data from a fast-paced, ever-changing business. With the business moving faster than their business intelligence infrastructure, Shell needed a faster way to update their data warehouse, collect and report KPIs, yet still give regions and divisions the flexibility to view the business in their terms. The business-model-driven automation in Kalido traces its roots to addressing this very real and challenging problem.
Kalido is able to provide a platform for delivering better data which leads to better decision making through automation in data warehousing and master data management. The model-driven automation that Kalido is based on lets customers realize business value up to eight times faster than traditional approaches.
