Bill Inmon — the “father of data warehouse” — has written 60 books published in nine languages. Bill’s latest adventure is the building of technology known as textual disambiguation (textual ETL) — 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 analyzed 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 Denver, Colorado.
