Christopher Ahlberg here at Recorded Future just blogged about another way of looking at it: What do we have access to on the internet that is not readily available in the Server room, and the answer is: data. A lot of data. For someone in the field of BI, not using Internet data, and sticking to traditional querterly results as the base for analysis, is really missing the point.
Read Christophers blog here for the full Monty (!). This is an interesting perspective, and way you look at it, and as an amateur computer historial, this is particularily interesting as one of the few commercial uses for the worlds probably only useful hydralic computer was just this: Using analysis to project sales. (This is actually largely true. Feel freee to ask me more on this last subject at the upcoming MySQL UC. This is truly weird geeky history!).
