The challenges faced by organizations building and maintaining business intelligence systems are familiar: slow turnaround on projects, inflexibility, performance, scalability, development backlog and an inability to integrate more advanced capabilities. We're building new information delivery systems for a future that isn't there. Our state-of-the-art environments are already becoming obsolete because our view is distorted by the lens of the past, showing us the future as it was years ago.
The world of scarce computing resources, expensive storage and limited data is gone.
Computers today are significantly more powerful and affordable than a decade ago, storage is cheap and data is abundant and growing - yet we're building systems using the same methods and tools we used then.
There is a better way.
