Monday Highlights

This year's theme is Active Enterprise Intelligence.

I think that the keynotes do a nice job emphasizing the value of AEI, too. AEI isn't a product, or a solution, or an architecture. It's a principle that says "business users need the right data at the right time to make the right decisions."

Like so many things in business, it seems obvious: If we could instantly answer whatever question we thought to ask, there'd be no hesitancy and much less risk. Margin, float, underwriting... they drive much of industry. Many companies make much of the money from nothing more that some low-level service that they provide. It that wasn't the case, the barter system would still be in effect today. So, better margins and pricing can be manipulated, the better a company's bottom line. Active Enterprise Intelligence.
