Dear Readers,

I am pleased to announce that beginning with this issue, you will find a new column from DAMA International. We have entered into a partnership which we are confident will benefit DM Review, DAMA International, and all of our readers as well. This partnership will facilitate the growth and knowledge of data management which has become so mission critical in the competitive global marketplace. The monthly column will include DAMA news and practical resources for data management professionals as well as a listing of local chapters and events. I would personally like to welcome all DAMA members to DM Review.

Data warehousing in health care is our industry focus this month. You'll find valuable insights in the article entitled "Data Warehousing in Health Care--Three Perspectives" as well as in the health care data warehouse success stories.

You'll want to take note of a series of data modeling articles that will be appearing in DM Review over the next several months. The series begins in this issue with an article by David Warren and Michael McKinlay. You will find valuable information in these articles, written by a variety of industry experts. Be sure to save this issue--you will want to keep the complete series for future reference.
