1998 World Class Solution Awards

1998 World Class Solution Award Trophy

DM Review's
1998 World Class Solution Awards

By Steve Markiewicz

DM Review is proud to announce the winners of the 1998 World Class Solution Awards for Data Warehousing. These awards, a symbol of excellence within the business intelligence and data warehousing industry, originated in 1996. This year, winners were announced in six categories reflecting mission-critical segments of the market as determined by feedback from DM Review readers.

"The World Class Solution Awards recognize the most successful business intelligence and data warehouse implementations in the world," said Ron Powell, publisher/editorial director of DM Review. "This year's winners truly exemplify the meaning of success from both a product and implementation perspective as judged by some of the leading experts in the industry."

The submission process for the awards began in January 1998 with software and hardware companies submitting case studies to DM Review for consideration. DM Review's panel of judges reviewed the submissions using the guidelines developed by DM Review's editorial staff. Information provided by the vendors was verified by contacting a representative at the implementation site and the winners were selected.

Congratulations to this year's winners, and thank you to all of the companies who sent submissions for the 1998 awards.
