NoSQL for My BI Solution?


Every day business intelligence (BI) gets closer to chaos. Don’t get me wrong—I’m by no means saying that BI will one day become obsolete and that you'll need to avoid it at all costs. On the contrary, what I mean is that BI will have to go outside the box into a world where data is not nicely structured within well-defined databases and using Structured Query Language—best known as SQL

This might not be a good approach to start with in a BI space, given that BI solutions are becoming easier to use. Specificity : As with other software applications, NoSQL databases may not be able to address all BI and analysis processes. Thus, additional efforts may be required to select the right type of database and/or customize it if needed. Read More

Intuitive Manufacturing Systems Shows Maturity in Adolescent Age Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations


As long as the "old" software is meeting business needs, new technology is not the change driver, which makes building replacement products on a new framework a higher risk strategy. Product functionality still matters and, while it is important for enterprise applications providers to implement the latest computer science "quantum leap", there is no guaranteed correlation between first-to-market and the ultimate-success-in-the-market. In fact, based on many experiences, one could even argue that the correlation might be inverse.
