In the 90s, Mark started a community called MAGIC while working at Apple Computer. MAGIC grew quickly into one of the largest ISPs serving the Toronto, Canada region. At that time MAGIC was the largest Macintosh user group in the world. He left to join Newstar Technologies in 1996 (where he met Miriam). Newstar evolved and became BCE Emergis.

Business Intelligence: Process, People and Products

This is a sixth blog entry in a blog series highlighting the critical nature and the importance of executive sponsorship for data governance initiatives.
