Announcing Our New Editor

A New Editor for Hub Designs Magazine

Big news for Hub Designs Magazine readers – we have a new editor!

The Hub Designs Blog (which was founded in July 2007) evolved into the Hub Designs Magazine in April 2011, and made its debut then as an online magazine with the latest articles, news, best practices and solutions for Master Data Management (MDM) and Data Governance.

The magazine provides a rich resource for consultants and practitioners, with more than 340 articles, through coverage of vendor products, relevant research and white papers, events and conferences, plus advice from real world implementations. Content is provided by practitioners, consultants, business strategists, and industry experts. The blog and magazine were founded by Dan Power, president of Hub Designs, a global consulting firm that specializes in master data management (MDM) and data governance strategies and solutions.

Due to increased interest in Hub Designs Magazine and a fast growing readership, today we’re announcing that Julie Hunt has joined the magazine as Editor. Julie is working with Dan Power to expand subject matter coverage, bring in new writers from different aspects of the MDM and data governance world (including the buyer and end user perspectives), and to continue to provide high quality content for our targeted readership with interests in MDM and data governance.

Julie Hunt is an independent consultant and software industry analyst who works with software vendors in the strategic aspects of creating, marketing and selling software, with a strong focus on customer needs. She has worked in the B2B software industry for over 25 years, in roles from the very technical to her current practice in market intelligence and solution strategies. Julie is a member of the BBBT, Boulder BI Brain Trust, a group of analysts and consultants who are briefed by software vendors for business intelligence, analytics, data management, and enterprise data warehouse technology solutions. In 2011, she was named by Information Management as one of 17 Women in Technology You Should Be Following for data and information management. Julie is based in Austin, TX.

Dan and Julie are also founders of the Hub Designs MDM Think Tank, a group of practitioners and consultants who take briefings from software vendors for MDM, data governance and data quality solutions. Written coverage of the briefings is published in the Hub Designs Magazine. Hub Designs will be sponsoring the upcoming Gartner MDM Summit in early April in Los Angeles, CA, and both Dan and Julie will be together there to cover the event.

Everyone involved with Hub Designs Magazine would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many readers, supporters and contributors who have made the magazine possible and successful. Please continue to read, and let us know what we can do to better serve you. Your feedback makes the magazine better for everyone!
