"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 analyze 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 organizations."

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

-- 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.

And, the Cleansing Rules Analyzer allows developers and administrators to test their quality projects and rules for real-time initiatives.

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.
