On August 31, 1999, at DCI's Data Warehouse World in New York, the winners of the fifth annual DCI Excellence in Business Information Awards were announced. These awards recognize outstanding successful implementation of data warehousing, data access and decision support technologies in today's dynamic computing environment. Each entrant was required to document an actual data warehouse implementation at a customer location.

The implementations were judged by an independent panel of data warehouse experts including Aaron Zornes, executive vice president of application delivery strategies at META Group; Ron Powell, publisher of DM Review; and Douglas Hackney, president, Enterprise Group, Ltd.

The awards were sponsored by DCI in conjunction with DM Review and co-sponsored by META Group and the International Data Warehousing Association.
