"It's information management Jim, but not as we know it"
Could these be the words of Chief (data) Engineer Scotty on board the Starship Enterprise? Enterprise information asset management that is! He'd be an avid reader of this channel if it made it out into Federation space :)

As an information professional have you ever heard any of these when discussing information management?
"It gets in the way".
"It takes too much time".
"What's the point of it"?
"It's not relevant to today's systems landscape".
"I don't need to do modelling, the package has it all".
If so, this channel is for you because that's the real world we live in and the areas I'll be discussing every month.
I hope you can join me!

Welcome to the Ronald Damhof channel for the BeyeNETWORK. This channel is all about Decision Support and Data Management. Most people will translate these subjects into Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, but in my opinion that just won't cut these days.
Two aspects concerning Decision Support and Data Management can be considered an important theme throughout this channel; Rigor and Relevance and the difficult balance between these two. On the one hand we need more rigor, more depth, more theory building, more empirical proof on important issues and solutions that are written down or are even implemented. On the other hand we need also relevance; spending resources of any kind to issues or solutions nobody needs is just 'blowing smoke' and creates a mish-mash of fuzzy thinking and incomprehensible jargon (J.Dearden-1980-MIS is a Mirage (Harvard Business Review).
Researches and practitioners are the ones that hold in their hands the responsibility of bringing rigor and relevance to the table and thus contribute to the body of knowledge regarding Decision Support and Data Management.
This channel is an attempt to function as a voice for anyone that wants to listen or contribute to the above. Please feel free to share your ideas, tips, articles, whitepapers or whatever. My contact details are:

This channel is devoted to master data management (MDM). This is where an organization wishes to manage its shared data (such as customer, product or location data) better. It includes organizational elements such as data governance, as well as technologies, such as MDM platforms and data quality tools. If you have one and only one source of data in your organization, and have complete confidence in its accuracy, completeness and timelines then congratulations - that is one unusual place that you work, but you can safely not bother with this channel. Otherwise, you might learn something.
I welcome your comments and questions and any suggestions you may have. Please e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Expert Channel on virtual data warehouse architectures and the data delivery platform.
The last twenty years, the classic data warehouse architecture has served us well. But if we think about the new demands and requirements from our customers, such as real-time data warehousing and increased flexibility, and if we consider new technologies, ranging from data warehouse appliances to mashups, the question we can ask ourselves is whether this is still the best architecture we can come up with. My answer would be "No."
This expert channel will focus on a new architecture called the data delivery platform. The data delivery platform is based on the concept of a virtual data warehouse. This channel will help you understand the data delivery platform, how new technologies make it possible to develop this platform, and the design and architectural principles of the platform.
In a nutshell, the end of the era of the classic data warehouse architecture has come, and like with all other technical solutions and technologies, it is time for a replacement.
As channel expert I will cover technologies, ideas, tools and design principles related to the data delivery platform and virtual data warehouses. I do welcome your questions, comments, ideas and suggestions. Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to lively discussions.
Welcome to my channel for providing you with the latest news and views on business intelligence and business integration. Since these two technology domains cover a wide range of topics, I will focus on areas where I spend most of my time. In the business intelligence arena I will look at enterprise data integration and business performance management. For business integration, I will focus on topics such as portals and content management that help extend business intelligence into the knowledge management environment.
