In reply to Jeffrey M. Kaplan
Great post Jeff. I’d add that general purpose BI - even in the cloud - doesn’t solve the problem any better than on-premise BI does. The reason is that unless you come to the table with a BI *application*, tools are still just that – tools: complex and expensive to buy, use, and maintain. Self-service applications in the cloud are the opposite: easy and affordable to buy, use, and maintain. So, what is the difference between an application and a tool? Apps do things. Tools build things. If you want to build something, buy a tool. If you want to do something, buy an app – in the cloud.

It's a hot topic with PivotLink customers and you've inspired us to expand more on this on our blog.

Has technology made transportation more or less safe?
Traveling by all modes of transportation has become riskier with each passing year.
In general, transportation safety has been improving steadily, despite some failures.
Some modes of transportation have been improving while others have become less safe.
We may have reached a tipping point where more tech means less safety.
Don't blame the tech -- greedy companies haven't done adequate testing.
Government regulators have not been playing a strong enough oversight role.
