Dennis Keeling has been a Business Software Analyst for over 25 years. He once claimed that he held the world record for sitting through more boring demonstrations of business software than anyone else in the world - a record never contested!
He has advised some of the largest organisations in the world on business software selection. His first
book - The Thesaurus of Business Software was published jointly with the ICAEW in 1988. He went on to write his top-selling detailed reports for Ovum until 2001.
In 1993 he helped found BASDA, the representative body for over 150 software developers, and acted as its Chief Executive and President until he stepped down in 2008.
He has presented at the Softworld exhibitions since they started in 1992. He has undertaken software reviews for Accountancy Age - but now in a 10 minute format. He continues to write articles for the press -
He is a member of the team supporting Knowledge Peers and has written various articles for them as well as taking part in various live interviews.
The idea of making his on-line directory of all UK software products has really caught everyone's imagination. This directory was launched at the Softworld Exhibition held at Olympia on 14th October, 2008. His new company Business Software Intelligence Ltd - which will provide web-services to suppliers and customers.
He has now started his own blog - Keeling Uncorked! He was gagged by BASDA in the later years from commenting on the Industry - he cannot understand why!
Getting factual Business Software Market intelligence is very difficult at the moment. So he has returned to undertaking his own impartial surveys. The first - to measure Customer Satisfaction in the Business Software market has just started. Why not enter your thoughts on your business software application? Review your current software application.

The Business Software Market
UK software market has changed in recent years - gone are the days when companies need to replace all of their disparate systems with one enterprise-wide (ERP) system. Today companies are preferring to add or replace specialist components of the overall system. But how do they find the most suitable components?
Dennis Keeling's online directory covers all the business software products available in
the UK. But more importantly - how each product fits into the overall IT architecture - a true Thesaurus.
This directory forms the basis of an advanced software selection web-site that enables
end-user customers to browse the whole UK software market and, using advanced selection criteria, find the most suitable packages to review in detail.
Selecting a Business System
To help take customers through the stages of selecting a business system, Dennis has written a booklet which is freely available for download.
