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.

Recently in NeoView Category

I found this interesting when reviewing the specifications for NeoView. It says "HP is responsible for platform management and 24x7 monitoring, support and incident analysis. This support is provided remotely and securely by HP's Global Customer Support Centers using HP Instant Support Enterprise Edition (ISEE). Upgrades or repair of software and hardware, as warranted, are provided by HP." To my knowledge, this type of support, while offered, is not as prominently touted or widely adopted with any other of the common data warehouse platforms whereas here it seems standard.

Otherwise, I found a lot of what has come to be standard - if I can use that word already - in the appliance world, though obviously with some different underlying technology. I think data warehouse appliances have a strong future as data volumes grow out of control and business intelligence is added to operational functions and the data warehouse needs to be optimized for a mass, historical data store.

I've written 2 white papers on data warehouse appliances, which can be found in the white paper section of my B-Eye Channel.
