Vote early and often for your favorite implementations on your favorite platform! (Hint: your favorite platform is SQL Server.)
Have you completed a data warehouse or business intelligence implementation that you think other organizations could learn from? Would you like some recognition for your accomplishment? Are you a vendor with successful customers who deserve recognition?
2008 TDWI Best Practices Awards
Although I’m working up a proposal for my own SQL Server 2008-oriented contest, I would *love* to SQL Server sweep all of these categories!
- Enterprise Data Warehousing
- Customer Intelligence
- Dashboards and Scorecards
- Enterprise BI
- Operational BI
- Data Governance
- Master Data Management
- BI/DW on a Limited Budget
- Predictive or Text Analytics
- Radical Business Intelligence
- Government and Non-Profit
I worked on many, many engagements with customers and partners over the last year or so [before I left the field for the product team] who (I think) should be solid winners in many of these categories. You know who you are!
