Welcome to my blog.

This is another means for me to communicate, educate and participate within the Business Intelligence industry. It is a perfect forum for airing opinions, thoughts, vendor and client updates, problems and questions. To maximize the blog's value, it must be a participative venue. 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.

Yep -- it's the Saturday before Thanksgiving and I have much to be thankful for. Here are just a few that bubble to the top of my list...

1. Last week, I gave a keynote address at a banner TDWI conference in Orlando. Not only was I thankful for the opportunity to address the large number of attendees but, at the end of my talk, Dave Wells, TDWI's Director of Education, named me a TDWI Fellow. It is quite an honor -- I was deeply touched and rendered speechless (rare for me). To read more about the keynote and the honor, read Eric Kavanaugh's article.
2. I have worked with some outstanding vendors this year - writing white papers, advising on positioning,and messaging, giving my thoughts on product direction, and so on. The BI technological environment is very healthy and extraordinarily innovative. I am thrilled to be a part of it.
3. My clients have also been amazing -- they have given me the opportunity to act as their "trusted advisor" and mentor -- what a position of confidence -- one I take very seriously.
4. I have worked with some of the brightest minds in our business -- Colin White, Ron Powell, Shawn Rogers, Wayne Eckerson, Dave Wells, Jonathan Wu, Richard Winter, Sid Adelman, Steve Hoberman, and many others. Thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge and helping me understand the ever-changing BI world!
5. My final thanks goes to my family -- Dave and Jessica -- who put up with my travel, strange schedule, and long days. They make it all worthwhile. I love you both.

So -- what's on your thank you list? Post a comment to let me know.

As always -- Yours in BI (and turkey) Success!
