A merger is taking place at DM Review. Datawarehouse.com and dmreview.com are currently the two major forces driving the flow of DM Review's electronic information to users worldwide. But, coming this summer, the two sites will be combined to create one of the most comprehensive resources on the Web for business intelligence and data warehousing information ­ www.dmreview.com. The goal for dmreview.com is to take business intelligence and data warehousing professionals into the next millennium armed with the cutting-edge information and tools they need to succeed. The new dmreview.com will offer more user-friendly navigation, Web-exclusive content, current industry news and ­ most importantly ­ more resources in one location.

In addition to the full array of resources currently found on both sites, the new dmreview.com site will host a number of new features aimed at further increasing the value of the site to its users. These new features include Ask the Experts, on-line exclusive columnists, a quick poll industry survey and the latest industry news, updated frequently.

Ask the Experts. Sid Adelman, president of Sid Adelman & Associates, a consulting firm specializing in data warehousing and strategic data architecture, will moderate dmreview.com's Ask the Experts. This feature allows business intelligence and data warehousing professionals to ask questions of industry- leading experts, including Adelman, Larissa Moss, Douglas Hackney, David Marco and J.D. Welch. The panel of experts' goal is to offer solutions to the never- ending challenges facing the industry. Questions and responses will be archived for reference by users.

On-Line Columnists. The on-line columnists are part of the Web-exclusive content found on dmreview.com. Sharing their perspectives on industry developments and issues, columnists featured currently include Lawrence F. Goldman, customer relationship management director for Braun Consulting, and Michael Haisten, practice director of Information Architecture Services for Daman Consulting. Goldman will discuss effective approaches to customer relationship management, and Haisten will cover business intelligence and data warehousing trends and strategies.

Quick Poll. This is an opportunity to get real-time results from industry-related survey questions. By answering the featured question, users will receive immediate results comparing their response to that of others involved in business intelligence and data warehousing.

Industry News. This feature is continuously updated to provide the latest in business intelligence and data warehousing news including company performance, mergers, acquisitions, new product announcements, trends, etc. This feature offers a "one-stop" source for keeping up to date on the latest industry news.

With its new design, dmreview.com will have the ability to react quickly to users' evolving needs.
