Welcome to the Ronald Damhof channel for the BeyeNETWORK. This channel is all about Decision Support and Data Management. Most people will translate these subjects into Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, but in my opinion that just won't cut these days.
Two aspects concerning Decision Support and Data Management can be considered an important theme throughout this channel; Rigor and Relevance and the difficult balance between these two. On the one hand we need more rigor, more depth, more theory building, more empirical proof on important issues and solutions that are written down or are even implemented. On the other hand we need also relevance; spending resources of any kind to issues or solutions nobody needs is just 'blowing smoke' and creates a mish-mash of fuzzy thinking and incomprehensible jargon (J.Dearden-1980-MIS is a Mirage (Harvard Business Review).
Researches and practitioners are the ones that hold in their hands the responsibility of bringing rigor and relevance to the table and thus contribute to the body of knowledge regarding Decision Support and Data Management.
This channel is an attempt to function as a voice for anyone that wants to listen or contribute to the above. Please feel free to share your ideas, tips, articles, whitepapers or whatever. My contact details are:
