My name is Catal Pinar, born 1952 in Ecuador but later moved to USA with my family and started working with software developing and business intelligence.

Currently I am very interested in things like: BI, DSS, Data Mining, Data warehouse and other data analysis tools and technics which is also why I have started this little blog on these topics. I will of course also be posting about other things which I find interesting or just want to share with you.

I would like to thank my friend Michael Nielsen for all his help getting this site up and running and taking care of all the technical stuff behind the website for me.

Pete Hammington for helping me with my english skills, without you I would never have been able to pass the tests.

Also thanks to my sister Corena Pinar for the helping me getting things organized and cleaning up my language for this project.

And finally a special thank you to my collages for putting up with me and and helping me feel at home in a different country.
