I started a new Linked In group named dwbIdeas. This is a forum for business users to voice their opinions and needs around DW, BI or analytics, describe difficulties they face, things that they wished were different, what they see as useful, what is missing.
Likewise, it is an opportunity for technology or solutions providers to respond to the business users’ thoughts with solutions and ideas. In the process, I hope some new ideas would be generated. Please join and contribute!
Key discussions and ideas will go on the associated web site, which is still to be created. Note that this forum isn’t intended for detailed functionality questions. It is more for big picture issues that would influence technology platforms and vendors. However, that judgement is yours.
