Not Pictured

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!



KABOOM!!! Yep that sound you heard at 10:30 AM MST was the change in the business intelligence landscape that many people have been waiting for, Jeff Raikes, President of the Microsoft Business Division, announced the launch of Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007, Microsoft’s new performance management application during a press conference. It's going to be an interesting ride the next couple months as Microsoft attacks the BI space with its full line up of solutions.


I've spoken here before about my believe in pervasive business intelligence. Microsoft is going to alter the existing paradigm for business intelligence and they are off to a great start. Raikes highlighted the hiring of over 100 employees to drive the BI division as well as highlighting that they have over 10,000 customer presently enrolled the Customer Technology Program (CTP) a way for customers to preview and work with emerging Microsoft technology. Over 1,000 partners are trained and ready to support the initiative. The CTP enrollment is an interesting number when you think about the number in comparison to the install base of many business intelligence solution providers....bottom line Microsoft has more people involved in CTP that most companies have customers.

I am still on the call....stay tuned for more.
