When Microsoft kicked off its second annual business intelligence summit in Seattle, it did so with the announcement of enhancing end-user BI capabilities with Gemini, an Excel-based interface that will enable on-the-fly pivot table functionality with point-and-click ease of use. Organizations continue facing pressures to deliver timely information that effectively meets business goals. This requires companies to have access to the information, the ability to combine, aggregate and integrate this information, and then deliver it to people when, where and how they need it.

Just do it in Excel

It is interesting to reflect on this post against the news earlier in the year that Microsoft were closing one of its entry level accounting packages.

The message coming out was that as most people did their accounts on Excel this should not be too much of an issue.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
