To BI or not to BI


Nowadays a company should not even question whether it needs business intelligence (BI) or not. Those who do not have it yet should include it in their future strategies, while those who do have it should search for ways to make BI work at its full potential. You Don’t Have It Yet?

Do You Want Your App to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 3


In Part 1 of this blog series I admitted to being a late adopter of a sort, in part for not immediately jumping onto the social media bandwagon. In particular, my initial reaction to Salesforce Chatter (a.k.a. Collaboration Cloud) was tepid when it was introduced at the Dreamforce 2009 conference. However, a few months have passed and this period has helped salesforce.com craft the much clearer

Informix to Acquire Ardent Software-Another Vendor's Attempt at End-to-End Data Warehousing


Informix« (NASDAQ: IFMX) and Ardent Software (NASDAQ: ARDT) today announced that they have reached a definitive agreement to combine their operations in a transaction valued, on a fully diluted basis, at approximately $880 million, based on the closing price of Informix common stock on November 30, 1999.

It would also be wise for Informix to allow the current Ardent management to retain control over the DataStage portion of the business, as they have been Read More
