Hello Jim - Thanks for the article and I completely agree that applications are key since they directly contribute to business value. I also like that you allude to the role of analytics since we are seeing a huge move towards analytic applications and analytics that are embedded within operational or transactional applications. To complement the application development and management we are encouraging organizations to leverage an overall information management strategy that weaves together data, analytics and decision management elements in a cohesive fashion. Will be interested in continuing the discussion with you and your readers.

Thanks, Mark Troester SAS Twitter @mtroester http://blogs.sas.com/content/datamanagement/
