Business intelligence notes and trends

I keep not finding the time to write as much about business intelligence as I’d like to. So I’m going to do one omnibus post here covering a lot of companies and trends, then circle back in more detail when I can. Top-level highlights include:

    Ok so I pulled down the SiSense bits. It doesnt support ODBC connections does it?
    I pulled in a XLSX file. Granted the UX seems fairly sleek but…how the heck do you use this thing?? 🙂
