Miller Freeman, Inc. Launches Intelligent Enterprise, a New Technology Magazine for Information-Driven Organizations

May 29, 1998, 01:00 ET from Miller Freeman, Inc.

    SAN MATEO, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Freeman, Inc. (MFI) today
 announced the launch of Intelligent Enterprise, a major technology publication
 covering the integration and management of business-critical applications and
 corporate information infrastructures. The new magazine will feature expert
 columns, product reviews, and features that provide both technical detail and
 an emphasis on achieving business objectives.
     Intelligent Enterprise has evolved from two of MFI's current information
 technology (IT) publications, DBMS and Database Programming & Design, and will
 replace both of them. The new magazine will serve an audience of more than
 100,000 IT executives such as CIOs and technical VPs, IT managers such as
 application development managers and software project leaders, IT specialists
 such as application developers, systems analysts, and database specialists,
 and corporate managers such as CEOs, general managers, and line-of-business
 managers. Intelligent Enterprise will be the computer industry's most
 technical magazine with a focus on enterprise applications.
     The new publication will be staffed by editorial, sales, and production
 personnel from both DBMS and Database Programming & Design. David M. Kalman,
 currently Publisher of DBMS, will serve as Publisher of the new magazine, and
 David Stodder, Editorial Director of Database Programming & Design, will serve
 as Editorial Director. Justin Kestelyn, currently Editor-in-Chief of Database
 Programming & Design, will be Executive Editor. The first Intelligent
 Enterprise issue will be published in September 1998 with an October cover
 date.
     The editorial mission of Intelligent Enterprise is a natural extension of
 the current missions of DBMS and Database Programming & Design, with their
 focus on distributed applications development and database technology. The new
 magazine will provide additional perspectives on the integration of diverse
 applications and data types in a unified architecture. This reflects the
 growing need to provide all users in the enterprise with easy access to
 business-critical applications and information.
     According to Kalman, corporate users expect to have easy access to diverse
 corporate applications and data from a simple Web browser interface. With the
 advent of corporate intranets and distributed architectures, users now expect
 access to all kinds of information, whether it comes from the data warehouse,
 an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system such as SAP R3, from a Web e-
 commerce transaction system that records customer orders, or from a textual
 knowledge base.
     "What users experience on the surface actually requires the intensive
 efforts of cross-functional teams that analyze requirements, define
 strategies, and integrate and manage applications," states Kalman. Intelligent
 Enterprise will serve as the key technical resource for these teams, providing
 detailed analyses of the products, trends and strategies that help accelerate
 the creation of this information infrastructure.
     According to Miller Freeman Group Publisher, Philip Chapnick, the unifying
 theme underlying Intelligent Enterprise is the notion of an information supply
 chain that serves as the central nervous system of the modern information-
 driven organization. "What unites the professionals relying upon Intelligent
 Enterprise is their stewardship of the software and systems supporting the
 entire process of information creation and transmission through an
 organization: from the time it is created, through myriad processing steps;
 until its delivery in the right format, at the right time, to the right people
 who can use it to make better decisions and provide their organizations with
 competitive advantage."
     The information supply chain enables the intelligent enterprise by
 delivering the high value of information-rich applications, and by serving as
 the medium for transactions over corporate intranets, extranets and the
 Internet.
     In addition to integration strategies, Intelligent Enterprise will focus
 on the specific technologies and applications that form the building blocks of
 the information supply chain.  These include:
 
     * Business intelligence (data warehousing, data mining, decision support,
 and OLAP)
     * ERP (enterprise resource planning, financial management, and workflow)
     * Knowledge, document, and process management
     * Transaction processing, performance monitoring and management
     * Applications and systems management
     * Relational and non-relational database software
     * Scalable hardware servers and storage devices
     * Inter/intra/extranet or other distributed development environments
     * Distributed objects, application servers, and middleware
     * Metadata, modeling and rules-based technology

 Borel Ave., Ste. 100, San Mateo, Calif., 94402-3522; phone  415/358-9500; with
 offices in Boston and New York; Web site www.intelligententerprise.com.
