Dear BI Review/DM Review readers,

Many of you have asked us why you have not received your latest issues of BI Review. Well, we’ve been working for some time on changes at both BI Review and DM Review that we feel will better serve our loyal readers. As of July 24, 2008, we will combine the brands under the DM Review name and Web site to create a single source of information about all things relating to information management, business intelligence and data warehousing. While the BI Review brand will disappear and we will no longer mail our quarterly print edition, you’ll find all the content you are used to and more - fresh case studies, profiles and columns - posted in new content areas at our updated Web site DMReview.com. We're very confident that you will realize the tremendous value of our free online offering. We realize you may still have questions, so we've tried to answer these below:

Why did you make this change?
Business/IT initiatives have progressed to the point that we no longer feel the need to serve these audiences separately. And, simply put, we felt that our new Web platform, with its extra resources, content and search features provide a more comprehensive and timely experience for readers of BI Review. The Internet also allows us to support many more readers at DMReview.com than we could in print. Readers and sponsors have increasingly told us they prefer the Web to print products because of the way it fits into their working day. There is no doubt that the Web has become the primary information tool for information management professionals, so we believe this will be a welcome change.

What will I get that I didn't get before?
A lot. We’ve built in new content areas at DMReview.com for case studies and profiles of the best Global 2000 corporations. We’ve also launched a Leadership Zone for strategic thinking of particular interest to executive management. You’ll find content organized in topical channels, and our advanced search tool allows visitors to search thousands of archives at DM Review to provide deep results on the topic of your choosing. Our dynamic article pages offer direct links to related data, content, and tools. You’ll get free access to our vault of white papers, information on free archived and upcoming Web seminars, book reviews and a handy glossary. You can print, email and share articles of your choosing and tap our RSS feeds. You can subscribe for free to DM Review’s new user-friendly digital edition of our monthly magazine. We've added live and archived versions of our popular DM Radio streaming broadcast, which can also be downloaded at iTunes. Watch for more interactive features soon, including blogs and message threads.

What do I do now?

We all know that information delivery has changed, and we apologize in advance to readers who will miss their print copy of BI Review. But we’re so sure you’ll prefer the benefits described here that we’re offering you a money-back guarantee. Wait, we don’t need to.
