We recently made some changes within the editorial management ranks at DM Review that I want to share with you.

Jim Ericson, currently editor in chief of our sister publication, Business Intelligence Review, has joined the DM Review management team as editorial director. In this newly created position, Jim will oversee the direction for our flagship brand as well as continue as editor in chief of Business Intelligence Review. Jim joined SourceMedia in November of 2004 as launch editor for Business Intelligence Review. Previously, Jim was editorial director for Line56 Media and cofounder of their award-winning publication Portals Magazine. Prior to Line56, Jim was managing editor for MSNBC's Washington, D.C. online news operation.

Additionally, I am pleased to announce that DMReview.com Web editor Mary Jo Nott has been promoted to editor in chief of DM Review magazine. Mary Jo has been with DM Review for eight years. In her new role, Mary Jo will oversee editorial content for the magazine, DMReview.com and dataWarehouse.com.

After nine years as editor in chief, Jean Schauer is leaving DM Review. I want to take a moment to recognize Jean's dedicated efforts in helping establish DM Review as the number one resource and destination for information on business intelligence and data warehousing. 

In this issue, check out our World Class Solutions Award winners on pages 8 and 9. These awards have become a symbol of excellence at DM Review and within the business intelligence and data warehousing community. The World Class Solution Awards identify some of the leading users and providers of business intelligence, analytics and data management technology. DM Review relies mainly on our panel of experts - DM Review columnists and contributors - to evaluate and select these companies and providers.

Also, Henry Morris of IDC is a featured author this month in Business Performance Management: From Outsourcing to Visibility to Optimization. The increasing use of outsourcing makes business performance management a necessity for improved visibility into the business. This enhanced view into processes can lead to optimization of all business functions.

In addition to Henry's article, please also enjoy the other valuable content in this issue.

Thanks to those of you who participated in our annual readership survey. We are busy compiling the results and look forward to sharing highlights with you next month.

Thanks again for your continued support and feedback.
