From the Publisher

Dear Readers,

The industry is in such turmoil with the decision to split Microsoft in two as a result of the recently concluded antitrust case. The verdict is being hailed by the government as a victory for consumers, but is it? We all remember the break up of AT&T and how we were told that it would result in lower prices. I don't know about you, but my phone bill is up over 200 percent since that verdict. Microsoft puts price pressure on all software providers and, in essence, lowers the cost of computing for everyone. Also, there is tremendous competition globally with start-up software companies providing competition for Microsoft on every front. Microsoft is in the process of appealing the verdict; and, in the long run, I would see the verdict being overturned but at considerable expense ­ in time and money ­ for Micro-soft and a tremendous squandering of our tax dollars by the United States government. Al-though I do not approve of some of the predatory practices employed by Microsoft, these could have been addressed directly without splitting the company.

I am sure you will agree that this month's magazine, our annual product review issue, will be an invaluable reference for you throughout the next year as you evaluate strategic products to meet your future goals and objectives. Published in July of each year, this special issue provides a wealth of information that cannot be found anywhere in such a concise format. All reviews are written by individuals currently utilizing these products to improve their competitive position in the global marketplace. Reviewers detail how the product is being deployed and provide critical information regarding strengths and weaknesses.

I am pleased to announce that this year, as a result of our continued growth and success, we will be adding an August issue. Focusing on the "e" explosion, this issue will cover current trends and directions within e-business, business intelligence and data warehousing. Be sure to watch for this great issue.

As always, thanks for reading DM Review.
