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!




Well I'm back at Mandalay Bay for the second time in two weeks but as usual the event is worth it. I'm at IBM Information On Demand. Its the 3rd year for this event and the good news is that its picking up speed. The turnout is solid and there is a ton of educational content. I just wrapped up a press conference with the 6 top executives from the IOD group including Steve Mills, Ambuj Goyal and Rob Ashe.

Ron Powell and I had a chance to catch up with Marc Andrews Director, Information On Demand Market Strategy. We talked about the focus IBM has on the future of BI and Performance Management and the impact of Business Intelligence on companies during the economic downturn. The theme I came away with is that BI isn't a luxury its a necessity if you want to be competitive. IBM is looking to help companies optimize beyond the simple managing of systems and automating of processes that so many companies are bogged down with so that they can become more successful. Its no surprise that real-time data, operational business intelligence and wider device delivery are all important themes here at the event.
