I have a new white paper available. It's sponsored by Business Objects and titled "Modernizing and Advancing Information Management Across the Enterprise." In the paper, I try to put information management leadership, the data warehouse, operations and analytics into a modern context.
I talk about the necessity and structure of information leadership, including new concepts of an Information Management Competency Center and Information Management Governance. I talk about the 2 directions data warehouses can go now and federating and consolidating those warehouses. Finally, there's where analytics are going to be coming from and some of the analytic value of modern ERP.
In each of the 4 areas (organization, data warehouse, operations, analytics), I give you a "checklist" of the most relevant questions to ask of your shop and seek answers to.
