If you are like me, a Tableau fan, you’ve probably used Tableau for many years, attended numerous Tableau Conferences, and cheered with great enthusiasm when the engineers at Tableau demonstrated the latest and greatest enhancements to the software.

Yesterday, Gartner published the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence. The MQ research for BI has been in existence for close to a decade. It is THE document of reference for buyers of Business Intelligence technology.

Did you know that 9 out of 10 companies are only able to analyze less than half of the data they collect? In fact, 45% of these companies analyze less than one quarter of this data . Why is that? The answer is simple. We are generating more data than ever, 44 zettabytes by the year 2020 to be precise. What does this mean for you? A great data lake filled with extremely valuable potential to make better decisions for your company. Remember what Sherlock Holmes once said: “I can’t build bricks without clay!” We need data to answer complex questions.
President’s day is the perfect opportunity to explore, honor and remember the legacy of Washington, Lincoln and other presidents. It is also a great day for all those who are looking for a good sale at their favorite retail or online store. What does this mean? Hundreds of millions of sales transactions will generate enormous amount of financial and inventory data will be generated on this one day.
Data, Data, Data! All the facts, numbers, and everything in between that, when collected, can be analyzed and decisions made based upon them. Can’t live with it! Can’t live without it!

According to CIO Research, big data analytics investments are expected to be close to $187 billion. We are definitely investing more on data than expensive chocolates! The big question is, are your data investments nurturing your relationship with data the same way a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates can nurture your relationships?

Is it October already?
It’s hard to believe that October is here. It feels like only a few days ago that we released AtScale 5.0 and AtScale 5.5. Both releases contained a number of great new features that I was excited to share with the Big Data and Business Intelligence communities. Although I may be a little biased, I really do believe that the release of AtScale 6.0 marks one of the biggest releases in the history of the company.
