Clearly EMC IT is more enlightened that the typical enterprise IT shop where the data warehousing guys have spent years, possibly a decade, getting the "right" data into the "golden" repository which fosters a sort of inertia, becoming a barrier in and of itself.

These traditional practices are at odds with the agile concepts and iterative design philosophies many are evangelizing today, and although BI-as-a-Service is cool versus the lame way most BI is done today, it's going to take awhile to realize a future where business analytics are consumed via an AppStore delivery model.

Enterprises are definitely looking to the likes of EMC Greenplum and its host of BI application partners to lead the charge.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
