Knowledge Integration Dynamics (KID) group has launched a new company called Cubic Blue that specialises in enterprise information management (EIM) directed at big data, governance, risk and compliance (GRC).
Cubic Blue is a reseller and implementation partner for fraXses as well as the Intenda product range.
fraXses is a federated big data application framework based on a metadata methodology that allows users complete interaction, analysis, and visualisation of the data, both upstream and downstream, in advanced ways.

“There is a gap in the big data arena and a global requirement for big data solutions, particularly related to governance, risk and compliance,” says Gavin Morrison, MD of Cubic Blue. “Companies need experienced practitioners with advanced and proven technologies to tackle a new and daunting field of responsibilities.”

Morrison has in excess of 20 years of experience in the IT industry, 14 of them in the data warehousing and BI space and several of them on a data warehouse and BI project at a large pharmaceutical organisation in the UK. He has experience rolling out in excess of 15 such projects. Etienne Meyer, who is GM of Cubic Blue, also has decades of experience in the industry specifically related to governance and enterprise architecture.

The KID group of companies has more than 25 years of experience delivering data-related projects for South Africa’s top financial, retail, manufacturing, and more institutions.

“Our consultants are results-focused and have proven track records,” says Morrison. “They are accustomed to delivering within budget, on time and to specification. Our value-add is the depth and breadth of EIM knowledge in the group of companies and our commitment to passing that on to our clients.”

Cubic Blue is offering a bouquet of 21 professional consulting services and an additional seven data governance and EIM framework consulting services.

fraXses is modular and provides true self-service that enables companies to build their own analytics with minimum involvement from IT.

“The fraXses solution sits on an existing hardware and software technology stack, next to any other application in the business and on top of the data of these applications,” says Morrison. “When you need extreme speed and granular analytics we typically channel business systems data directly to the fraXses backend database environment.”

Intenda’s GRC is a self-assessment tool developed using the Intenda Devolution metadata development platform. Devolution provides the ability to easily develop custom and bespoke applications.

Both fraXses and Intenda are available as on-premise or hosted solutions in the cloud or a hybrid of both.
