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.

November 2009 Archives

A recent survey conducted by Adaptive Planning and BPM Forum revealed that the uncertain economic environment will cause 60% of the surveyed companies to re-plan, re-forecast, and perform what-if analyses more frequently in the next quarter. Participants included financial professionals from companies of all sizes in more than 20 industries. I believe that the survey demonstrates the need to be proactive and demonstrates the importance of performance management and business intelligence. I really hope that we have seen the bottom and will avoid a second dip in this recovery.Untitled
