I Hate You, I Love You: What the Heck Are Your Customers Really Saying?

Did you know you can use business intelligence (BI) to figure out what your chattiest customers are telling other customers? You can, with sentiment analysis—TEC analyst Jorge Garcia explains who, what, when, where, why—and how!

In breaking news: Dassault Systèmes acquires IBM PLM. TEC Analyst Kurt Chen analyzes how this latest industry shakeup really shakes out.

And here's a clear, concise white paper I thought you should read before doing anything rash: Criteria for Selecting a Business Intelligence, Reporting, and Analysis Solution. Title says it all.

Thanks for reading today's TEC Newsletter—please let me know if you've got questions or comments about anything that strikes you as interesting, contentious, or just plain odd. Have a great day.
