Gian wrote this article for TDWI's year end publication. It's a letter to Santa, if you think it's silly, please drop us a line and let us know! http://tdwi.org/articles/2011/12/09/open-letter-to-santa-bi-subjects.aspx
Gian wrote a well received article for a recent TDWI newletter discussing how to sell a data qualtiy solution. It's somewhat of a different approach than we have used in the past, but as times change and budgets tighten, we have to adapt our techniques. http://tdwi.org/articles/2012/03/13/Selling-a-Data-Quality-Project.aspx
Gian gave a webinar on data profiling tools for IAIDQ that turned out to be their most highly attended webinar since they started the program! We are very proud. If you have free hour, please listen to the recorded webinar, let us know if any of the jokes are any good.
