Just a few days after I wrote this post I received a mail promoting a new BI system from one of the big guys.
Excerpt from the admail.
The first two items are almost identical with two sentence I wrote in a document describing my Data Warehouse some ten years ago. I didn’t wrote anything about harnessed though, and I used the phrase system centric as opposed to my user centric Data Warehouse. And for the last sentence I more than once been baffled by design patterns disrupting the user experience when loading data.
I think this new modern Business Intelligence approach is the way to go, it’s the future and it’s my old Data Warehouse design.
