Claudia Imhoff and Colin White presented "Extending the Corporate Information Factory to Support the Smart and Agile Business" at the TDWI World Conference in Orlando, Florida.

World-renowned data warehousing, business intelligence and business integration experts Intelligent Solutions and BI Research have teamed up to develop CIFe, an extension of the Corporate Information Factory (CIF), the practical and proven framework that shows companies how to successfully build an enterprise-wide information infrastructure. The CIF was developed in 1998 by data warehousing pioneers, Bill Inmon and Dr. Claudia Imhoff, and it has been used as a blueprint by hundreds of leading organizations worldwide. The CIFe was developed by Intelligent Solutions a leading provider of business intelligence and customer relationship management consulting, and BI Research, a research, education and consulting company specializing in business intelligence and business integration. The development work involved merging and extending the concepts of the existing CIF with an earlier version of the Smart BI Framework developed by BI Research. The results of this work are two new frameworks that collectively provide the required infrastructure for supporting the smart and agile business.
