Intelligent Enterprise’s Editors’/Editor’s Choice list

I have a blog on Intelligent Enterprise, which actually amounts to editor Doug Henschen’s selections of a few posts a month from DBMS2 (I still haven’t persuaded him to take anything from Text Technologies).  Accordingly, I was asked to contribute thoughts this year for his annual article Editors’ Choice article.  It’s out now, and as usual is a good piece.

All the choices are actually Doug’s, as he honorably points out.*  Doug’s a smart guy, and he has a good group of contributors, and so the final list is one I’m pretty comfortable with.  I recommend taking a look at it, even if you’re not one of the 48 selected vendors; if you are one of them, I of course expect an imminent press release announcing your selection.

*But I’d be even more impressed by that disclosure if he moved the apostrophe one character leftward to support it. 😉

General agreement aside, I do have a few thoughts to add.  Some of the specific comments in my e-mail contribution were:

I also would have tried hard to make room for Aster Data.

On the negative side, I understand Doug’s River Logic obsession, having had it for a number of years myself. But I finally lost hope that River Logic will ever execute in a market-significant way.

    Good choices. RiverLogic has been chosen as one of those to watch for performance management last year.
