Dear Readers,

The November issue of DM Review has always been one of the most anticipated issues of the year, as it contains our annual Buyer's Guide feature. Because many of you are charged with finding and evaluating new technologies and solutions that meet your business needs, DM Review's 2005 Buyer's Guide provides you with comprehensive profiles of leading technology providers - spanning key technology areas from analytic applications to business intelligence and query and reporting. Our Buyer's Guide feature begins on page 68.

Complementing our annual Buyer's Guide feature in this issue is the announcement of our 2004 Readership Award winners on page 50. These winners are the solution providers that our readers voted #1 for excellence in technology and services.

With this wealth of information, this is one issue you will want to retain for your IT evaluation and purchasing information needs over the next 12 months.

Additionally, we have several outstanding features in this month's issue. On page 24, you'll find Creating a BI Strategy Document, authored by Michael Gonzalez. Any of you implementing or planning for a BI solution must read this feature, which essentially provides a blueprint for BI implementations.

Gauge Your Data Warehouse Maturity can be found on page 34. Written by Wayne Eckerson, this feature answers the questions: How does your data warehousing solution compare with others? What will it take to get your data warehouse to the next level?

Our series on compliance comes to a close in this issue with Compliance: IT's Launchpad Into Higher Orbit. Authored by Rajeev Rawat, this is the final article in a four-part series.

BI and Government Performance Management by Steve Williams and Nancy Williams discusses barriers that must be overcome to realize the potential of business intelligence and data warehousing. Also look for Customer Data Integration, Linkage, Precision and Match Accuracy by Ed Allburn and David Loshin, and a special supplement on data integration. In this supplement, End Data Chaos with a Data Integration Framework, by Faisal Shah, CTO of leading BI and data warehousing consultancy - Knightsbridge, explains that a data integration framework greatly simplifies architectures and creates a structure within which data-centric applications can be built the "right" way today.

One final item. On page 8 you will find the highlights of information that can be found at our Web site - DMReview.com. This extensive content complements our magazine content. Of particular note is DMReview's online conference covering Business Intelligence which runs through November and December, as well as several FREE Web seminars that we put together.
