This issue is our Annual Product Review issue, featuring more than 55 product reviews representing a wide cross-section of strategic business intelligence, analytic applications and data warehousing-related solutions. As always, these reviews present the perspective of actual users of the products. In each review, you'll learn the business challenge faced by the organization and why the product was selected along with the product's strengths and weaknesses. An index of all the reviews featured can be found on Page 4. Be sure to file this copy of DM Review in a safe place. You'll want to reference it regularly throughout the coming year when you are making product purchase decisions.

We've received lots of positive feedback from some of you regarding features in our June issue, and I would like to remind you that the authors featured in DM Review greatly appreciate your input regarding the articles or columns that they write. You may send your comments directly to the authors - e-mail addresses are included in the short bio statements at the end of each article or column - or you may send your comments to me at And be sure to do the same for the Web-exclusive content - articles and columns that appear only on

As always, thanks for reading DM Review.
