the "Father" of Information Engineering

Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of meeting a living legend - Clive Finkelstein. Clive Finkelstein is acknowledged worldwide as the "Father" of Information Engineering (IE), having developed its concepts from 1976 - 1980 based on original work carried out by him to bridge from strategic business planning to information systems. Many of his papers and some projects are available online at I'd love to get Clive to speak at some Microsoft events.
