Sybase has just posted a white paper that I wrote on high performance analytics using column-oriented databases. Despite my recent (10+ year) foray in the data world, my original background is in high performance data parallel computing. Parallel columnar database systems reflect the best of both worlds I have lived in, and I hope you guys find the paper interesting!

I recently read a white paper from IDC analyst Dan Vesset and Brian McDonough, called "Improving Oranizational Performance Management Through Pervasive Business Intelligence" that comments "...those organizations that rank themselves as more competitive within their industry tend to place greater importance on data governance." Clearly, data governance is a critical component of any enterprise activity intended to support organizational value drivers.

Also, a reminder: I am presenting at a series of upcoming live events, sponsored by Informatica, Teradata, and Microstrategy. In these talks, I will be exploring the concept of "right-time" operational business intelligence, the business and value drivers, and the basic expectations for technology components that would enable expanded delivery of actionable intelligence to decision-makers across the organization.

The title of the event is "Turn Uncertainty to Advantage: Operational Business Intelligence is the Key," and you can register by clicking on the links below:
