From the Publisher

Dear Readers,

It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of the 2003 World Class Solution Awards on pages 24 and 25 of this issue. Our hard-working judges, identified on page 25, reviewed more than 100 entries this year ? not an easy task, but one that they approached with great attention to detail and impartiality. On behalf of everyone at DM Review, I want to sincerely thank the judges for the substantial time commitment that the judging process required. It is a testament to their dedication to analytics, business intelligence and data warehousing.

You can read about the winning solutions at www.dmreview.com/wcs/. Congratulations to the providers of the technology and to all the members of the teams at the businesses who identified a business pain and addressed it in an impressive fashion to benefit their companies. These solutions are testament to the fact that BI is a critical component for success in today's economy.

I would also like to thank Val Schauer for coordinating this comprehensive awards program. She enjoyed working with those who submitted entries and with the judges. If you would like to enter next year's competition, please contact Val by e-mail (vschauer@dmreview.com); she will send you the guidelines when they are available next January.

Additionally, I am pleased to welcome two new columnists this month ? Kent Bauer and Neil Raden. Kent is a principal consultant at GRT Corporation who has more than 15 years experience developing CRM, data mining and data warehousing applications. Neil Raden is the founder of Hired Brains, a consulting firm dedicated to the design and delivery of high-performance data warehouses and business analytics systems. Neil is also a founding partner of the BI Alliance, a well-known writer and lecturer in this field and a hands-on consultant and implementer. Our thanks to both of them for their eagerness to share their expertise with all of the readers of DM Review.

Finally, you may soon be receiving an invitation to participate in our annual readership survey. This is our only opportunity each year to hear directly from so many of you, and I'd like to ask you to complete the survey. Your opinion really matters to us! Thanks, in advance, for your cooperation.

As always, thanks for reading DM Review!
