"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" - Albert Einstein.

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

I would like to use this blog to have constructive communication and exchanges of ideas in the business intelligence community on topics from data warehousing to SOA to governance, and all the topics in the umbrella of these subjects.

To maximize this blog's value, it must be an interactive venue. This means your input is vital to the blog's success. All that I ask from this audience is to treat everybody in this blog community and the blog itself with respect.

So let's start blogging and share our ideas, opinions, perspectives and keep the creative juices flowing!

I'm at the McCarran Airport, waiting for a flight to Chicago; snow delays as usual. I have just begun to settle down after an exciting week at TDWI. The conference overall has been a great success. I was amazed at the networking that was happening at the conference, between attendees. The Executive Summit was a great crowd of BI sponsors and owners, who participated in all the sessions and workshops. On the last day, The Arizone State University BI team blew all of us with their "pervasive BI" deployment. Hats off to them for the efforts, someday soon, I will feature an article on them in the channel.

Apart from the executive summit, I had briefings with all the vendors and will post entries next week. We conducted night schools at TDWI on Text Analytics and Mining, DW Performance Tuning and other topics (which I taught) and also had Curt Monash and two other experts present at the night schoo. All of these were well attended and recevied by the audience. The feedback from the audience will help TDWI put new courses in a blend with current courses for BI.

There were two keynotes one on Monday from Executives at CISCO and the other today bi Claudia Imhoff and Colin White. Both the keynotes were insightful and practical.

BEyeNetwork has podcasts and entries from the event at the main page, if you are interested in exploring.

In the first article of the year, to be posted in the next two weeks, I will be discussing DW and BI Trends.

Till then, keep visitng and your comments are welcome.

If you need a specific topic to be discussed ot written about, please leave a comment.
