Firstlogic, Inc., a global provider of enterprise information quality solutions, will sponsor iSummit, an innovative online conference consisting of more than 45 interactive sessions with some the world's leading authorities on the subjects of business intelligence, customer relationship management (CRM) and data warehousing issues.

The free online conference kicks off October 1 at 11:00 a.m. CDT with Bill Inmon, the father of the data warehouse, presenting "Data Quality: A Holistic Approach." In the Web seminar, Inmon shares his ideas on how to achieve data quality within the Corporate Information Factory (CIF), a proven framework for managing information systems. According to Inmon, there are three primary places within the CIF where data quality is addressed – in legacy environments, ETL processing and in the data warehouse itself. Where, when, and how organizations should implement data quality processes will be the central theme of Inmon's Web seminar.

"Data is the fuel that runs the Corporate Information Factory engine," Inmon said. "If you get water in the fuel, the engine sputters and loses power. As such, data quality solutions have emerged as a key ingredient in the building and operation of the CIF in business intelligence and CRM applications."

Other presentations will follow, including an impressive lineup of Web seminars headed by noted industry experts Ted Friedman, Mary Knox and Esteban Kolsky of Gartner, Inc; Colin White of DataBase Associates, Inc; Doug Laney of META Group, Inc.; and William McKnight of McKnight Associates, Inc.

To register for the free Bill Inmon Web seminar on October 1 at 11:00 am CDT, or any other Web seminar in the iSummit series, which runs through December 17, please visit
