Oracle
Data Warehousing Report

The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) estimates that poor quality customer data costs U.S. businesses a staggering $611 billion a year in postage, printing and staff overhead (TDWI estimates based on cost-savings cited by survey respondents and others who have cleaned up name and address data, combined with Dun & Bradstreet counts of U.S. businesses by number of employees.).

Lower Expectations Worldwide Corporate IT Education and Training

According to IDC, software spending in North America did not grow nearly as quickly in 2001 as it did in 2000, when it increased more than 18% over 1999 spending. Over-investment, particularly in technology, by companies prior to the bubble burst has deterred growth in investment over the past 18 or so months. The result is that the IT training market, while still growing in 2001, was impacted adversely.

American Laptop PC Users Become Addicts

A survey on more than 2,400 computer users, conducted by Intel Corp., found that people have used their laptop PCs in the most unusual places: at weddings or funerals, in coal mines and on top of grain towers, from a Grand Canyon hiking trail to a "dodgy youth hostel in Amsterdam," while riding a horse, milking a cow and building a chicken coop.
 
Oracle Leads on the Modern Databases Market

The Gartner/ Dataquest study on database management solutions license sales in 2001 confirms the leading position of Oracle, with a 39.8% share.
 
People around the World Increasingly Favour Globalization, but Worry about Jobs, Poverty and Environment

The largest-ever public opinion poll on globalization, covering countries with 67% of the world's population, shows that people increasingly favour economic globalization, but they have high expectations in some areas that will be difficult to satisfy. Citizens also have concerns about perceived damaging impacts of globalization.
 
15% Decrease on the Global Servers Market

The global high-power servers market restrained 15% in Q1 of 2002, IBM being the company with the largest share price increase, a Gartner study reveals.
 
Almost All European Schools Are Network Connected

The European Commission recently lifted the barriers for the public sector services, nationally and regionally, arguing, at the end of May, that its initial plan to connect all the schools to the Internet is almost complete. The next target is to make the transition of the public services - mainly schools and hospitals - to broadband access, Erkki Liikanen, EC's representative for enterprises and information society, declared.
 
Who's Doing the Spending on Content?
Laurie A. Seymour

IDC latest study describes content as digitized information - regardless of media type - made available over networks, such as text, music, pictures, or video. The individual consumer is often the first market that comes to mind when thinking of content service providers (CSPs). But although individuals represent almost 100% of spending on content services, the money for CSPs isn't coming from the consumer.

"World is changing... Fast". I wish I had a dime for every time I heard this. Bill Gates would have been my assistant accountant. I'm not about to endlessly chat about the technique - evolving faster than our understanding abilities, and I'm not about to lament on the fact that, except for some experts, no one understands what's going on.
