I’m very pleased to announce that the Rittman Mead BI Forum 2014 running in Brighton and Atlanta, May 2014, is now open for registration [http://www.rittmanmead.com/biforum2014/]. Keeping the format as before - a single stream at each event, world-class speakers and expert-level presentations, and a strictly-limited
