Microsoft UK IT Evangelist Mat Stephen has posted a most excellent article – 

Business Intelligence (BI): The way it is, without the blah blah 

Written in plain English**, this really helped me further get my head around “OLAP” and “Cube”, and “English”. 

“Having been to a Gartner BI conference, I’m quite convinced they would find it a challenge to describe something as simple as flicking a light switch in anything less than a 500k pdf.”

For those of you interested in all-things-SQL, Mat’s blog is an excellent resource.  You should subscribe to it.  (Remember: RSS is NOT “Rocket Science Surgery”)

 

**Yes, there are even references to Cricket.  And as an added bonus, he pokes fun at Donald Rumsfeld.
