"No one that I know of has attempted to deliver a true business perspective of EIM. And few people are qualified to do so. John is one of them."- Wayne Eckerson, Director, TDWI Research

"The idea of information as an asset and the ability to manage it as such is extremely important right now. Not a lot of people know how to do it, but John Ladley is one who does." - Danette McGilvray, author of Executing Data Quality Projects

"Ladley, the author of Making EIM Work for Business -- A Guide to Managing Information as an Asset (2010, Morgan Kaufmann), has spoken and written widely on the topics of data governance and enterprise information management. He has 30 years of experience helping both IT and business leaders to better plan and manage information and projects. Ladley recently spoke at a TDWI Webinar on Data Governance for Business Leaders."-- Interviewed on TDWI.com
