Latest downloads, training, and informational materials
Posted by denglishbi on January 31, 2010
The reason my blog postings have been reduced a bit lately is because of Twitter. When I come across new content and materials I post the information through my twitter account (http://twitter.com/denglishbi); It is more convenient and easy for me and I plan on using this method more and more over time.
I decided to go ahead do another catch-up for people that might be interested in some of the content that I have been checking out (and plus for when the tinyurl links stop working). So here is a list of some of the items over the past couple of months (these are in no particular order):
- Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Busines Intelligence 2010 (2009 version)

- Windows Azure Platform TCO and ROI calculator
