Thanks for visiting my blog. As co-founder of the BeyeNETWORK, acquired by TechTarget in 2010, I am privileged to participate in many industry-related activities as a BeyeNETWORK expert covering business intelligence and analytics. These events provide me with a unique insider perspective into the business intelligence ecosystem, its products and the vendors that provide those products. I'll be sharing that invaluable information with you through this blog, which will also be a reflection my business philosophy. And, just to make this interesting, I'll be sure to include my personal point of view on a wide range of topics and share some of the stories of people I meet in my travels.

I just finished reading a remarkable study: "The New Voice of the CIO." More than 2,500 CIOs were inteviewed globally for the study that was conducted by IBM. I spoke with Peter Korsten, Global Leader at the IBM Institute for Business Value. One of the key findings of the study is that high performing companies share a different set of attributes than those that perform at a much lower level. If you are responsible for driving the information needs of your organization, I would highly recommend that you read "The New Voice of the CIO." For more general background on the study, click here. I would also appreciate your comments regarding the study if you have time. Thanks!
