Dear Readers,

As business intelligence and data warehousing markets mature, it is important that DM Reviewprovide the most insightful editorial possible from both a technical and business perspective. We have an exciting announcement that will allow us to extend our coverage of strategic markets and topics. As of April 1, 1999, DM Review has been acquired by Faulkner & Gray, a unit of Thomson Financial and the Thomson Corporation, and will become the foundation of a newly created division of Faulkner & Gray - the Business Intelligence Division. Committed to our growth objectives and continued editorial excellence, Faulkner & Gray will continue to operate DM Review at the current location with the current staff. We are all looking forward to this strategic partnership. Faulkner & Gray's 25 other publications include: Financial Service OnLine, Insurance Networking, Health Data Management, Electronic Commerce World, ID World, Internet Retailer and Card Technology.

If you haven't already done so, I'd like to encourage you to participate in our annual readership survey. Conducted on the Web by Market Perspectives, this survey will provide valuable insight into the data warehousing/business intelligence market and enable us to refine our editorial coverage to meet your needs. Please visit to complete the survey. One lucky participant will receive a $500 prize from Market Perspectives, and all participants will receive Bill Inmon's latest Tech Topic on ERP and business intelligence as well as a summary of the survey results.
