Business Intelligence isn’t a technical problem, it’s a social problem

Yesterday I presented to an B-eye-network audience our perspective on why business intelligence is broken and what can be done to fix it. The full PDF-version (4mb) of the presentation can be downloaded.

A sampling of the fun:

"Chart-based encryption -- data goes in, no information comes out"

Chart-based encryption

On the excessive emphasis on reporting over analysis...


"Technologists are looking to build an atomic-baloney slicer"..."Nobody ever got fired for adding more requirements"


"Data analysis isn’t just for the data analysts anymore"

Typing is to...

"Have you ever working with a reporting tool that outputted to PDF?"

Hopefully we stirred the pot a little with this presentation. A recording of the B-eye-network event should be available soon.
