Dear Readers,

Welcome to DM Review's Annual Product Review issue. In this issue, you will find 75 product reviews presenting a wide cross-section of strategic business intelligence and data warehousing solutions. All reviews are testimonials provided by customers who identify the problems solved by the vendors' solutions, the implementation of the products and the strengths and weaknesses they have identified through use of the product. All of the products are currently in a production environment, and many have improved the competitive positions of the submitting organizations in the global marketplace. This issue will be an invaluable reference for you throughout the next year as your evaluate strategic products for your organization's use.

Also in this issue, we introduce an exciting new Web feature, the Diary of a Data Warehouse Project, which will be updated weekly on dataWarehouse.com, our online community for business intelligence and data warehousing professionals. Not only will this feature provide practical information regarding a data warehouse implementation project through the eyes and ears of the project manager, it will also enable you to interact with the project manager and your peers through an associated online forum. In the online forum, you will be able to ask questions and share knowledge and insights. We are very excited about this collaborative DM Review and Greenbrier & Russel work in progress. The first installment of the Diary of a Data Warehouse project will be available July 1. Be sure to check out this unique best-of-breed feature and let us know what you think! For additional information, please see page 18 in this issue.

This month's issue also contains an Internet component ­ don't forget to check DMReview.com/GoNow for the monthly columns by David Axson, David Cahn and Jane Griffin.

Hope you're enjoying a great summer!
