Movers and Data Warehousing
In their forthcoming book Prime Movers Johan Wallin and professor Rafael Ramírez describe how a new breed of companies not only act rapidly to changes in the environment, but also actively shape the business environment of tomorrow. They show how companies like Tetra Pak, Xerox, ABB and Nokia have successfully strengthened their own competitive position. These companies have intelligently appreciated the external world and then acted promptly and decisively to support changes that are favorable from their point of view.
Prime movers never rest. They know that they both need to exploit the potential of today and simultaneously create the potential for tomorrow. Data warehousing is therefore a key enabling technology. Data warehousing can be used in all the management processes critical to the mission: Culturing, business modeling, corporate-wide coordination and activity management. This course will provide ample material about the connection between this new form of management and data warehousing.

Johan Wallin argues that data warehousing technology is one of the main
drivers for an increased appearance of prime movers. Any company has to
be aware of this phenomenon, because the prime mover of tomorrow may be
a severe threat to the future of any company.
