DSLayer: Network of Truthi-ness
We’re back with another show to discuss/dispute/dissect the Network of Truth in a show appropriately titled “Network of Truthi-ness“. Let’s begin.
0:25 – Apparently we are desperate for more people to join us.
0:55 – Apparently we also need a 12 step program.
1:20 – Community News – Lots of stuff in our neck of the woods.
2:35 – Thomas Jung is coming to SAP Inside Track STL!
5:28 – The Single Version of the Truth (SVoT) has always been at risk.
5:50 – Jamie insults every Data Warehouse implementation. Ever. Except for three.
6:40 – The SVoT gets no love…or trust.
7:30 – Why didn’t Agile BI solve world hunger?
8:15 – “Agile will never be faster than an Executive’s phone” <- Oh so true.
9:35 – Wikipedia found to be incomplete. You should stop using it for your homework.
11:47 – The Network of Truth (NoT…heh) is marketing buzz?
12:28 – Greg thinks BI for the masses is going away. Jamie quickly snaps back on that one. Ad-hock-y forever.
13:40 – Yes, delivery methods will change but that doesn’t change that everyone needs BI.
14:52 – The NoT will be used to drive the “what’s new in data”.
17:25 – Greg thinks he’s psychic. I still think mobile is the future of the SVoT and it’s not going anywhere. I think we just agreed to disagree and not punch each other in the face.
18:39 – And then, the podcast takes a huge left turn. Write backs and Rich Internet Apps? This is going somewhere, I promise.
22:30 – Greg’s prophecizes that HANA can solve for this, but the reality it doesn’t need to be a closed system to achieve a closed loop process with the SVoT, NoT, and a Write Back capability.
24:50 – Some day we need to be able to admit to the decisions in the Write Back
25:05 – The NoT is not the only version of the truth. It’s just a part of the trifecta.
26:02 – Ego sufficiently stroked.
27:22 – There it is! The universe – we still need it.
29:01 – Jamie sees the potential of the HANA semantic layer. We’ll keep watching it.
31:00 – Wrap it up.
33:00 – We want to know what you want us to talk about. So does the NSA.
