Not Pictured

Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK blog! Please join me often to share your thoughts and observations on new analytic platforms, BI and data management. I maintain a vendor-focused practice that uses primary research, briefings, case studies, events and other activities that stimulate ideas as a source for commentary on strategy and execution in the marketplace. I believe the emergence of a new class of analytic platforms, and emerging data management and advanced tools herald a next step in the maturity of information technology, and I'm excited to be present for its emergence. I hope my blog entries will stimulate ideas that will serve both the vendors creating these new solutions and the companies that will improve their business prospects as a result of applying them. Please share your thoughts and input on the topics.

 

 

IBM chose a regular meeting of its Data Governance Council to launch a series of now-renamed Information Governance services and products and announce a definitive agreement to acquire Initiate Systems. A privately held software vendor based in Chicago, Illinois, Initiate stands as IBM's 30th acquisition in the information and analytics sector. Initiate's data integrity software for information sharing is designed to help health care clients work more intelligently and efficiently by supporting timely access to patient and clinical data. It also enables governments to share client information across multiple agencies to better serve citizens.

This post was co-authored by Merv Adrian and Charles King of PUND-IT. It's a little more narrative than my usual posts (and longer), and is reproduced here in the form it appeared in the PUND-IT newsletter.
