Over many years of observing how analytics systems evolve, we have seen a pattern that drove us to break the cycle of disruption and expense often found when tools reach their limit. The scenario usually begins by solving a problem with a spreadsheet first, followed by the jump to Microsoft Access or other desktop database software when the spreadsheet management becomes overwhelming, and finally ending up in large implementation project to transform a mission critical application running on desktop software. The trouble with the transitions between tools is it is expensive, disruptive, and ultimately unnecessary.
