In a show of bipartisan consensus between two suppliers in relatively close proximity, Kalido and QlikTech have pooled their resources to produce what they describe as a single "integrated" product that offers both information management and business intelligence capabilities.

Scheduled for roll out in September of this year, Kalido and QlikTech say that their new technology proposition is built with a combination of associative analysis tools for business intelligence and an information "engine" directed and driven by a company's business model.

The companies' announcement comes in the wake of last year's major acquisitions in the information management space, which saw Oracle buying Hyperion and IBM taking control of Cognos.

According to QlikTech, the new jointly developed product provides a visual way to analyse the data managed by Kalido. "By combining QlikView's capacity to serve up new analysis of data instantaneously with Kalido's ability to quickly incorporate changing business requirements, the joint solution brings speed to every aspect of business intelligence," said Bill Hewitt, president and CEO at Kalido.

Earlier this year analyst company Gartner said, "The biggest problem IT still faces is how to make business intelligence more pervasive and to increase adoption among business users."

In response to this, both QlikTech and Kalido have said that their combined technology stacks will produce an enterprise-ready information management option that provides real insight into corporate data better decision making.
