Congratulations to our good friend Bill Inmon for his inclusion on this Computer World article.

Bill is in good company listed alongside of Edgar (Ted) Codd, IBM fellow and Father of the relational database, John J. Cullinane, Founder, Cullinet Software Inc. Creator of the packaged software market. And other IT luminaries.

Check out the article for the entire list. Here is the write up on Bill.

Who: Bill Inmon
What/where: CEO, Inmon Data Systems Inc.
Why: Coined the term “data warehouse” in 1990 and is considered the father of the $28 billion industry. Inmon defined a data warehouse as a place where information is subject-specific, integrated, time-dependent and nonvolatile -- that is, more data can be added, but old data never changes. Advocates contend that businesses should have one data warehouse that creates data mart offspring. A prolific writer, Inmon has published more than 650 articles and 46 books -- so far.
