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.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
