IT Knowledge Exchange is a proud sponsor of the 2009 TDWI World Conference Series — below is information pertaining to the first event, taking place in Las Vegas in February.
The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) has announced it will host its winter 2009 World Conference in Las Vegas, NV, from February 22–27, 2009.
TDWI’s premier BI/DW education event emphasizes a topic on every executive’s mind: how to keep organizations properly aligned and responsive to change in today’s volatile business environment. Courses such as “Agile Project Management” and “Aligning Balanced Scorecard and BI to Optimize Business Performance” aim to provide a holistic approach that allows businesses to align people and projects to deliver agile solutions. The full-day courses will also feature topics in operational BI, insightful analytics, data management, and other business intelligence and data warehousing (BI and DW) disciplines. In addition, the TDWI BI Executive Summit will be co-located at the event in Las Vegas.

Yes, you heard right! IT Knowledge Exchange is trying out a newsletter “two newsletter per week” format, which will include features such as “IT Blogger of the Week” and “IT Knowledge Exchange Member of the Week” in the Thursday edition. Please send any feedback or suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week’s featured blog is Yellow Bricks, by Duncan Epping. The blog focuses mainly on virtualization, especially VMware, and updates readers daily with tips, tools, and links to related articles and whitepapers. As Epping describes, “[…] Bricks are solid but flexible at the same time [be]cause you can build anything you want. Same goes for virtualization, it provides you with a firm foundation with gaining flexibility at the same time.”
In a recent entry, Epping outlines his favorite health tools for VMware PSO. You can check it out here.
Yellow Bricks is a great read for anyone interested in VMware or even virtualization in general, as it covers all areas of virtualization in a thorough, balanced way.

Each week we want to highlight a blog or website that we think would benefit all IT pros. This week, it’s DataCenterKnowledge.com
If you’re looking for more information related to the data center, the Data Center Knowledge blog is a great place to start. Rich Miller and his editorial team cover data center news from all angles, targeted to different companies, locations, data center technologies and careers. He also travels to several enterprise events and reports on them, and posts discussion and review-focused video content. If you are a data center professional or just interested in the Data Center space this blog covers it all and is a must read.
