William McKnight

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I will periodically be sharing my thoughts and observations on information management here in the blog. I am passionate about the effective creation, management and distribution of information for the benefit of company goals, and I'm thrilled to be a part of my clients' growth plans and connect what the industry provides to those goals. I have played many roles, but the perspective I come from is benefit to the end client. I hope the entries can be of some modest benefit to that goal. Please share your thoughts and input to the topics.

Hi, is it possible to receive the deck that you presented at the Oracle OpenWorld session? I was in attendance.


Yes, I've emailed it to you. Anyone who wants it can email me for it. Thanks.
