Everyone please, Big Data needs reflection

Every year during the summer the news stream here in Scandinavia is heavily impacted by what we locals call ‘Agurketid’ (red. Cucumber Season), which is a time of year when the media seemingly have nothing to report on, so they cover silly little (and sometimes pointless) stories. There are many reasons for that, but regardless, … Continue reading

Spice up your BI with Big Data

In a previous blog post I asked rhetorically if Big Data is redefining BI? And of course I had a good feeling that it did. The feeling was based on the fact that we saw bits and pieces from different sources – including some from vendors whom you wouldn’t expect to be early movers. Essentially, … Continue reading

Is Big Data redefining BI?

Most of us at Platon have been working with BI for many years, some even for decades. And we have seen it before – new disruptive technologies changing everything, or at least claiming it did.

At the Build conference in Los Angeles Steven Sinofsky showed the experience, hardware samples and (most important) the developer perspective. I watched the three hour long keynote, which is long, but despite a few bugs it was exciting stuff! My initial … Continue reading

Expect the unexpected

Times are definitely changing. This applies for almost everyone, from people living in various regimes around the world, business landscapes and to our beloved IM market. Kinect was originally introduced for the Xbox, in order to make it (and gaming) appeal to a larger user base than the traditional hard core gamers. In IM space … Continue reading

Exponential Customer Satisfaction

A few days in Seattle always make my mind reflect a bit. Sharepoint was among the agenda topics for the visit and it that made me think back of my first Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) presentation back in the early days of Platon – at one of our first seminars (on e-Business Intelligence) held in … Continue reading
