Whatever you may think of the validity of "people's choice"-type awards*, it's always nice to know that somebody loves you... and it feels pretty good to have a relatively new contender beat out the reigning champion.

SQL Server 2005 Integration Services trumped Informatica in the Intelligent Enterprise Magazine: Readers' Choice Awards this year. w00t!

We also had some other very nice wins among the various other categories. I'm especially happy to Microsoft on top of "Best Performance Management Suite" because Concerto absolutely rocks!

Great job, guys!!

 

* When more adults vote for the "American Idol" than in a typical gubernatorial election, I guess I'm actually more frightened than skeptical.
