From the Editor

Dear Readers,

Hopefully you had a restful and relaxing summer and are sufficiently invigorated to address your organization's challenges. As always, this issue of DM Review is packed with valuable content to assist you in that endeavor. Also, be sure to read this month's special section on Real-Time Business Intelligence and Business Activity Monitoring for an update on those markets.

You've already seen two outstanding articles by George Marinos, PricewaterhouseCoopers' National Data Quality Partner (see our May and August issues). We are pleased to announce that George has agreed to be a regular columnist, and this month, you will find Data Management: An Executive Briefing featured on page 62. This month's installment covers the top ten oversights in corporate governance.

We've had great response to our DMReview.com Web site survey, and we will share some of the results next month. Thanks to everyone who participated. Our Web site also has new online columnists. Guy Creese and Denis Pombriant will begin writing columns this month. Guy recently formed Ballardvale Research. His column, Volume Analytics, will focus on online analytics and discuss text and data mining, customer segmentation and Web analytics. Denis Pombriant is the founder of Beagle Research. His column, CRM, will focus on the relationship aspect of customer relationship management.

Mark your calendars for a live Webcast, Sustaining Information Management, featuring John Ladley of KI Solutions on Thursday, September 30, at 2 p.m. CDT. His keynote address, Valuing Information and Knowledge, is currently available at our online conference and expo. View this on-demand presentation and register for the follow-up Webcast focusing on best practices for maintaining an information management culture at http://www.dmreview.com/conferenceandexpo/.

We're very excited about next month's issue. Our senior art director and her team have designed a great new look for DM Review, and it will debut in our October issue. I'm sure you'll like it - the new design is much more attractive and reader friendly. We're still featuring the same great content, so watch your mailboxes in late September for the "new" DM Review!

As always, thanks for reading DM Review!
