This means I will look forward to hearing from you often, since your input is vital to the blog's success. All I ask is that you treat me, the blog, and everyone who uses it with respect.

So...check it out every week to see what is new and exciting in our ever changing BI world.

Picture it -- San Diego, 70+ degree days, balmy nights, and some of the best BI discussions around. That was DCI's Business Intelligence conference this week. I was fortunate to be invited to speak and also came away with a few gems.

The conference was a three day event starting on Tuesday and covered a wide array of BI topics for the newbie team member as well as the experienced practitioner. There was even a light-hearted keynote by a plane jumper (parachute and all...). Jonathan Wu of Knightsbridge (feel better, Jonathan) and Barbara Gavin of DCI put together a solid line up including Bill Inmon, who spoke on the need for and difficulties with unstructured data, Colin White, speaking about the need to understand right time as opposed to real time data needs, and many others.

My own talk was in the last time slot on Thursday - clean up batter! I figured the audience would be cooked by then but they rallied around and we had a great discussion on the need to incorporate BI applications into the overall workflow of the business. Thanks to all of you that hung in there with me.

Hopefully I will see you at the next conference.

Yours in BI success!
