20 May 2009

Trillium Software, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE:HHS) and a leading enabler of Total Data Quality solutions, today released the Trillium Software System v12, the latest major version of its enterprise data quality solution for high-volume data profiling and discovery, data cleansing, and data quality dashboards and reporting.

The Trillium Software System version 12 is a major release delivering significant enhancements that support Trillium Software’s vision for enterprise-level Total Data Quality. The delivery of ActiveEnterprise Resources – Trillium Software’s newest innovation in global enterprise-ready data quality best practices – accelerates the design, development and deployment of real-time data quality programs across an organisation. It provides a platform for companies to expand existing data quality processes into strategic, operationally-based applications including master data management, risk & compliance, and data governance. In addition, the software includes new data quality dashboard and reporting capabilities to help data stewards, governance teams, managers and executives translate data quality results into business terms and metrics for clearer understanding of their impact on business operations.

"As the demand for improved data quality increases, companies are becoming more sophisticated in their need for high-volume enterprise data quality solutions that provide important benefits tied to the actual performance of the business," said Philip Howard, research director at Bloor Research. "With the release of its newest software solution, Trillium Software has demonstrated that it appreciates the need to make enterprise data quality easier to achieve, manage, maintain and analyse for both business users and IT people."

"Trillium Software continues to define and extend its leadership in delivering robust, scaleable, highly-available and easily-deployable solutions for mission-critical enterprise data quality," said John Nicoli, managing director at Trillium Software. "The Trillium Software System v12 represents another huge step in helping our customers achieve improved enterprise data quality across departments, applications and processes within their organisations."

The solution includes a number of new capabilities and features including:

1 - ActiveEnterprise Resources – New components for accelerating the development, deployment and management of enterprise real-time data quality projects and services in high-availability production environments. The Project Deployment Manager helps users rapidly configure and deploy real-time data quality processes and integrate them into enterprise applications. The Director System manager is a secure, network-based tool that enables administrators to dynamically control and monitor data quality servers and services across their enterprise. And, the Cleansing Rules Analyser allows developers and administrators to test their quality projects and rules for real-time initiatives.

2 - Business Rules Library – Empowers users to easily design, deploy, manage and share user-defined business rules across multiple data sources and systems from one location. The library enhances support for data governance and enables organisations to enforce data quality corporate standards for all types of data domains including product, customer, supplier and financial data.

3 - Dashboarding and Reporting Enhancements – New data quality scorecards and reporting is available for distribution through a browser-based presentation layer in the form of charts, ratings and graphs. Users can create valuable, customised displays and trends of data quality metrics from out-of-the-box or user-defined data quality rules. New in v12, data quality ratings enable users to create data quality metrics and scorecards associated with business processes and functions, providing improved levels of context and value for information governance. The metrics are presented in an intuitive graphical user interface format, allowing executives, business users, data stewards and data governance teams to easily and quickly monitor the status of data and understand how it impacts enterprise goals, processes and transactions.

4 - Global Support in User Interface - The latest version of the Trillium Software System user interface offers the ability to create language-specific screens as well as help and context-sensitive display information. The product’s industry-leading support of double-byte, single-byte, and Unicode languages and country templates expands the level of coverage for more countries and advances overall support of global data quality programs.
