Beyond Business Intelligence: Delivering a Comprehensive Approach to Enterprise Information Management

This week, more than 100 CEOs representing many of the world’s leading companies are meeting in Redmond, Washington, to discuss technology trends that promise to reshape the corporate landscape. The occasion is the Microsoft CEO Summit, an annual event that we’ve been hosting since 1997.
