From the Publisher

Dear Readers,

This month DM Review is proud to announce the "Data Warehouse 100." In a survey of DM Review readers conducted by Market Perspectives, readers were asked to identify and rate the vendors of products used within their organizations for a variety of data warehousing/business intelligence purposes. These ratings were compiled and analyzed by Market Perspectives to identify the top 100 companies involved in providing hardware and software for data warehousing and business intelligence. The top companies identified were IBM, SAS, Oracle, Platinum technology, NCR, Cognos, Compaq (which included Digital and Tandem), Prism, Sybase and Business Objects. The entire list of companies can be found on our Web site, www.dmreview.com/top100, along with the complete methodology that was utilized. Congratulations to all members of the "Data Warehouse 100" on being recognized for your valuable contributions to the business-critical data warehousing field.

The data warehousing/business intelligence market is still young, and new products and companies are being introduced regularly. Other companies and products may not yet have a sizable market presence, and products which are bundled with a total solution may not have widespread name recognition. Consequently, you may notice that some companies with effective data warehousing/business intelligence solutions did not make the "Data Warehouse 100." These companies will have the opportunity to make the list in 1999 as their products increase in use and name recognition.

In our December issue, we will highlight an executive from each of the "Data Warehouse 100" companies. These executives will provide their perspective on this market and their future direction. It will be a great issue and should provide you with tremendous insight and assistance as you plan your future purchase decisions.

Be sure to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions. Just send an e-mail to rpowell@dmreview.com .

Thanks for reading DM Review!
