Trillium Software, a division of Harte-Hanks, Inc. and leading provider of Total Data Quality solutions, announced general availability of Trillium Software Discovery Version 4, a data discovery solution in use at such global enterprises as British Telecom, EDS, Ford Motor Company and a broad range of other companies around the world. This announcement marks another milestone in Trillium Software's integration of Discovery from the former Avellino Technologies, which was acquired by Harte-Hanks and merged into Trillium Software in February 2004.

Trillium Software Discovery Version 4 adds newly developed client-driven data discovery capabilities, including automated data monitoring, business rule validation, trend analysis and the generation of alerts when data quality anomalies are found. The introduction of business rule validation empowers users to define their own unique business rules, measure how well their data supports them and identify exceptions to those rules that must be rectified to avoid costly inefficiencies and damage to both business and IT operations. This version also introduces user-definable data standard definitions (DSDs) for setting data structure, content conditions and thresholds. Reporting of these factors may be automated and added to Discovery's built-in profiling and data discovery functionality.

Trillium Software Discovery integrates directly with the Trillium Software System for data matching, standardization and linking. Through the Discovery interface, users are able to exchange data and meta data, thereby enhancing and accelerating the process of data discovery, data cleansing and data quality assessment. Increased capabilities for integration with other applications through XML-compliant interfaces are also available in this version.
