January 2012 has now come and gone, the successes of 2011 are still with us and guiding the growth and prosperity at DATAVERSITY™ in myriad ways: the publishing of regular content on a well-developed schedule, upcoming white papers on the hottest topics in Data Management, thought provoking blogs from some of the top names in the field, new and exciting conferences and other face-to-face events, panel discussions and additional objectives that are still getting underway.
One of our most popular educational formats is the DATAVERSITY produced webinars. In January we started two new webinar series’ that we will be carrying through 2012:
