Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

This past week was The Data Warehousing Institute's World Conference in Orlando, FL. I always enjoy the TDWI conferences for a number of reasons. For one, I get the opportunity to present the classes I've developed on Data Profiling and Business Rule-Based Data Validation, and each time I go through it, I get the chance to learn more about issues that the attendees are trying to address. Another reason is the chance to network with other experts in the field and exchange ideas about new Business Intelligence techniques. Lastly, I also love meandering around the exhibit floor, collecting doodads and gewgaws to bring home for my kids to play with (like light-up pens, fake ice cubes, balls, silly putty, etc.)

This past week, I had the opportunity to get a new reason: B-Eye-Network podcasts. I flew in Tuesday afternoon, and the first thing I did at the conference was a series of interviews with Scott McNabb from IBM, Art DeMaio and Martin Query from Similarity Systems, David Kerr from Cognos, and Frank Dravis from Firstlogic. The experience for me was a first, but I am sure it won't be the last.

Plus I got the chance to talk with Shawn about free hotel Wi-Fa internet.
