I tend to see information as links rather than numbers. As such, business intelligence was never my favorite topic. Just ask my ex-girlfriend Cindy, an expert in the field, how I'd space out when she mentions reports and analytics. When I was working at stag, I had to put in extra effort to wrap my brain around the company's (relatively simple) business intelligence tools.
As such, I'm glad to hear that SAS, the gold standard in business intelligence, is dabbling in a far more informal technology -- wikis.
They pumped $850,000 into enterprise wiki provider SocialText last week.
