Author Biography - Bill Inmon

Bill Inmon -- the "father of data warehouse" -- has written 57 books published in nine languages. Bill's latest adventure is the building of technology known as textual disambiguation -- technology that reads raw text in a narrative format and allows the text to be placed in a conventional database so that it can be analysed by standard analytical technology, thereby creating unique business value for Big Data/unstructured data. Bill was named by ComputerWorld as one of the ten most influential people in the history of the computer profession. Bill lives in Castle Rock, Colorado.
