Harte-Hanks Trillium Software Announces New Strategic Data Governance Consulting Services

New Services Combine Years of Proven Data Management Experience to Help Customers Maximize Business Value From Any Stage of Their Data Governance Initiative

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and a leading enabler of Total Data Quality solutions, today announced a new set of strategic business consulting services aimed at cost-effectively helping organizations plan, implement and maintain critical data governance initiatives.

In light of an international movement toward increased levels of business process oversight and regulation, organizations recognize that enterprise data governance can help create needed transparency into company operations and data -- generating increased business value from customer service, risk and compliance programs, and data management. Through a series of collaborative consulting engagements and a nimble building-block implementation methodology, Trillium Consulting™ can enable companies to design and build a custom-fit program for governance that effectively delivers business value while sustaining ongoing data governance year-over-year.

"With all the complexity, sheer volume, and constantly-changing nature of today's business data, large organizations face incredibly difficult challenges in ensuring that their data stays relevant and valuable to all parts of the business -- or risk losing money, time and growth opportunities," said Bernard LeCuyer, senior vice president of global services at Trillium Software. "Unlike other consultants whose expertise is limited to technology, our team takes a time-tested strategic business approach to helping our customers achieve their complex data governance goals."

Trillium Consulting representatives move beyond technology solutions to show customers exactly how to plan for -- and what they can expect from -- their data governance initiatives in terms of value, business benefits and potential cost-savings. Based on their deep knowledge of customers' industries and data management needs, these highly-experienced consultants help:

--  Plan a packaged, modular, cost-effective ten-step implementation
    approach that best fits customer needs;
--  Perform detailed value assessments to secure executive buy-in and
    enable clients to quickly execute on plans and goals;
--  Conduct onsite collaborative engagements and assign roles or
    responsibilities to create a structure that advocates a small
    administrative footprint and promotes more effective organizational
--  Draw up plans that serve as the foundation for overarching data
    governance processes and a Center of Excellence that is scalable and
    sustainable over the long term, and;
--  Fine-tune solutions to ensure customers maximize the benefits of data
    governance and technology.

These data governance business services complement Trillium Consulting's existing set of educational and technical services which aim to help customers more efficiently evaluate and plan for their data management challenges and deployments prior to any technology implementation. By relying on Trillium Consulting's years of business and data quality consulting expertise, organizations can potentially maximize the return on investment of their data quality management initiatives and ultimately achieve their data governance and MDM goals more quickly and effectively.
