Over on MIP’s Scan this morning he mentioned an application he was given access to use.
As he discusses (Dabble DB) this is an online software as a service (SaaS) application that allows you to build a database application in more of a business oriented way.
I found this very interesting as we have built out our Enterprise Data Warehouse SaaS solution. We have been focusing on the centralization of the data and the power that brings to an organization leveraging best in class components.
The area that we have not focused on as of yet is the user interface once it is in production. As we were planning on using standard BI tools (Business Objects, Cognos, MicroStrategy, or whatever tool the client leveraged) along with Teradata as the database and Sunopsis as the ETL tool.
I am hoping to get a chance to see this application in use and have contacted MIP. So hope to have more soon.
