Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



I get about 30 press releases a day and sometimes you have to laugh at what some companies find news worthy. The one I just received from Greenplum made me sit up and take notice.

  • Announced today that Smart Communications Inc. (SMART), the Philippines' leading wireless service provider, has selected the data warehouse appliance solution offered by the two companies.
  • A $15 million venture capital financing round was led by Sierra Ventures, previous Greenplum investors Mission Ventures, Dawntreader Ventures, and EDF Ventures also participated in the round. In addition, Greenplum announced that Comerica Bank has extended a $4 million line of credit to the company.
  • Named former Sun Microsystems, Inc. senior executive Bill Cook as Chief Executive Officer. During his tenure at Sun, Bill held many leadership positions, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of US sales. In this position, he led a field force of 3,500 with revenues in excess of $5 billion.
  • Established a regional headquarters in Singapore and hired industry veteran Vinay Samuel as its General Manager for Asia Pacific Region. Prior to Greenplum, Samuel was General Manager of Asia Pacific for Netezza, a US-based data warehousing appliance vendor.

Congratulations, thats a news worthy day!
