There are a number of great events related to Decision Management themes and technology platforms this Fall.  Here’s my list so far:

  • Teradata Partners Conference and Expo 2-6 October, San Diego, CA #TDPUG11
    This is a great conference for anyone using or considering Teradata. I assume that this year there will be a solid set of presentations on Aster Data as well given Teradata’s acquisition. Sadly I won’t be able to make it.
