Brookfield, WI – September 26, 2000 – DM Review is pleased to announce the DM Review 100. This prestigious award recognizes the top 100 business intelligence vendors as selected by the readers of DM Review. In a product usage and vendor rating survey conducted via the Web by Market Perspectives, DM Review readers were asked to rate the vendors of business intelligence (e-business, customer relationship management and data warehousing) products used in their organizations.

The DM Review 100 vendors were chosen based on a weighting process that made calculated adjustments for the rating scores for each product, the number of sites reporting use of the product, the number of products in a given category, the number of categories in which the vendor’s products appeared, and the overall customer satisfaction rating for each vendor.

In 1998 and 1999, this ranking of vendors by DM Review readers was identified as the Data Warehouse 100. Data warehousing has become universally recognized as the required infrastructure of strategic business intelligence initiatives, and the vendors serving this marketplace now represent a broad spectrum of products and services. The new name, DM Review 100, more accurately represents DM Review’s mission and the vendors that are meeting the business intelligence needs of DM Review readers.

The 2000 DM Review 100 alphabetical listing can be found at http://www.dmreview.com/awards/top 100/.

Vendor rankings will be revealed in reverse numerical order beginning on October 24 at the same URL. The top ten vendors will be announced in a Webcast on Friday, November 17, at 2:00 p.m. EST/11:00 a.m. PST at http://www.dmreview.com.

All vendors in the DM Review 100 will be featured in DM Review’s December 2000 issue. An executive from each company will respond to the question: For businesses to compete successfully, they must focus strategically on their customers. This requires an effective e-business infrastructure with a business intelligence backbone. How is your company responding to the cultural changes that are resulting from the rise of e-business and customer centricity?

"The DM Review 100 represents the companies that are effectively meeting the business intelligence needs of their customers," said Ron Powell, Publisher/Editorial Director of DM Review. "These companies were identified by our readers, and inclusion in this exclusive group demonstrates each company’s commitment to excellence."
