Excellent video on the History of BI

Click here to access a funny and accurate 10 minute video on The History of BI from Nic Smith of Microsoft. It’s not a Microsoft puff piece (not until the last 30 seconds, anyway, which is forgivable) – which again drives home the message that seems to slowly being worked out by BI professionals that BI is a people driven business process, not an IT driven system. (This topic seems to be getting thrashed about on some of the LinkedIn groups I frequent, as BI Vendors using it for marketing are getting a deserved kick in the pants for being too tech focused)

Anyway, watch, enjoy. (via: Oz Analytics, but for some reason that particular page kept killing my browser, so I went to source)
