Cindi, very insightful post and a great perspective. I was intrigued by the concept of BI search. Do you see that as a front line people using BI search instead of more directed and specific and contextual data delivered to them?

Good question Amaresh. I think front line people PREFER pre-defined content, either embedded in their operational app or dashboard. However, when the desired info is not there, then a simple interface like search is a necessary complement.

It seem that's one is quite hard to do,We all know that most of the time we are about to look a services because we can't do it by our self only.In Finland many business are believing in other services like user experience in fact in part of Helsinki there is some services that providing consulting design and other implementation support which is you can't really do it by your self.

I politely declined, suspecting they really wanted a funded product review. I had looked at their new product at a high level and liked what I saw.
