Shawn, your comment got me thinking about what it might look like for the Google Generation to "embrace business intelligence." I tried several stories, but the only one that held water was this:

These folks are so immersed in information flows and sharing from so many sources, everything they embrace becomes part of a synthetic whole -- to the degree that traditional labels and boundaries and differences sort of blur away. So, as structured data and analytics get embraced and absorbed into the Ent2 hive, it may be that we will no longer see an isolated and crisply differentiated space to call "BI." Thoughts?

Shawn Rogers

Thanks for the kind words. I am looking forward to taking part in the conversation you have started here. Thanks for the invite to contribute. The industry is just starting to realize how valuable Web2/Ent2 integration can be. As more "Google Generation" knowledge workers embrace business intelligence they will expect to have a (PDLC) Personal Development Life Cycle and the platform that supports it. Defining the components and methodologies will be a journey and a fun challenge.
