Dear Readers,

With the recent acquisition of DM Review by Faulkner & Gray, we have become one of the cornerstones of its e-commerce group. DM Review will continue to provide the most up-to-date information from the top experts in the industry, including Bill Inmon, Claudia Imhoff, Larry English and Sue Osterfelt. To enhance our coverage of this burgeoning market, we will be adding more writers and reporters to support the strong editorial focus required of any Faulkner & Gray publication. This will enable us to provide you with additional relevant and timely information for formulating and implementing business intelligence and data warehousing strategies. In Faulkner & Gray, we have found a strategic partner that will provide DM Review with the resources required to dominate in the areas of business intelligence and data warehousing ­ the backbone and infrastructure for e-commerce in the 21st century. We will all benefit as we make the transition to an information-driven society.

We are all aware of the pervasiveness of the Internet in society today. However, we are just beginning to take advantage of the vast Web resources to benefit our organizations. This issue includes an article by Richard Hackathorn, author of the recently published book, Web Farming for the Data Warehouse. In his article, Hackathorn explores how web farming, the systematic refining of Web-based information resources for business intelligence, can enhance the coverage and richness of the data warehouse ­ motivating its transition to that of an intelligence center or knowledge base for the enterprise.

DM Review is proud to announce that our conference, which has been held in Denver the past two years in conjunction with Claudia Imhoff and Intelligent Solutions, will be held this year in Orlando. Mark your calendars for October 4-7. This conference will provide you with valuable resources covering a wide range of strategic business intelligence and data warehousing topics. As we move beyond Y2K and focus on the competitive differentiators that will enable our companies to be successful in the next century, it is imperative to be fully apprised of the technologies and methodologies that will ensure success. For additional information regarding the conference, please visit the conference section. Space is limited, and only the first 300 who sign up will be able to attend. Watch for more information about this conference in future issues of DM Review.

As always, thanks for reading DM Review.
