It was shortly after I missed his sessions at a recent conference that I met and got to know Alan Pelz-Sharpe of CMS Watch, a nine-person analyst firm neutrally covering the unstructured data space. Alan had been presenting at TDWI’s show in Las Vegas along with his partner and principal at the same firm, Tony Byrne. They were on a road show that would include AIIM and DAMA as well. Since unstructured content is a reality or on the horizon for many BI professionals used to the structured data world, I thought it would be a good time to ping Alan on where things are meeting up, and what in the world he was doing at a conference mostly dedicated to data warehousing.
