Lot's of news this week from Oracle's decision to buy BEA, Sun's decision to purchase MySQL, Cognos 8.3 launch, and a joint announcement from SAP and BOBJ. Phew.

I like the Performance Guys take on this weeks news. If you've not added this to you're regular reading list I'd encourage you to do so.

Oh - and my good pals Adrian and Nick down-under have released The Rational Guide to Planning with Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007. If you want a full chapter breakdown and more here. Great job guys - you both rock.

If you've got to get your hands on a copy of the book immediately you should order it directly from Rational Press.
