A History of Business Intelligence

A short post for a Friday!

I’m finishing up my first 2 weeks at my new job and new position.  I don’t think I’ve been in SSMS for more than 3 hours in the last 2 weeks.    This is a big change for me I’ve spent the better part of 12 years in the trenches with SQL server either Administering, Architecting or querying SQL Server.  I’ve spent much of my time reviewing Business Intelligence tools that are out on the market.  I’m working on some blog posts on things to look for and some of my impressions of these tools but until those are complete enjoy this short post and this very well done You tube video about Business Intelligence.  It’s not slanted any one way in my opinion and it doesn’t feel like its’ trying to sell a specific product.  Take 10 minutes when you have time and check it out.
