You feel exasperated as your phone pings for what seems like the hundredth time in a day, or your eyes glaze over as a glut of new analytics data rolls in. You feel resigned to the fact that an influx of email could very well go on forever. This acclimatization that comes with being overwhelmed by a variety of signals, both relevant and irrelevant, isn't a big deal on the personal side of things. But it can have major consequences in the world of business intelligence, where missing even one important alert can ... (more)

Dashboards and Reports, Not Required By @MMoscovic | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Push intelligence enables you to focus on what’s most important, then collaborate with others to act on what needs to be fixed.
