While any content aggregation company will promote its own interests and capabilities, it's also important to educate—to provide complete and accurate information that can make business intelligence decision-making clearer and more focused.
We freely admit that the position papers included in this Resources section contain a point of view. At the same time, they offer factual information that you can verify. We also encourage discussion and debate. If you have a differing point of view or additional information on a particular topic, let us know. This keeps us on our toes... and helps keep you fully informed of the latest developments in the content aggregation arena.
