Are Data Warehouses as Dead as the Dodo? (LiveDashBoard and QlikView)

A Good Scripted Demo Is Key in Software Selection


One of the main challenges in evaluating business software solutions is first creating a good script to demonstrate the software—one that’s neither too vague nor too detailed. If it’s too vague, all the vendors will be able to demonstrate all the criteria listed—and this will have little value for decision makers who need to assess one solution against another. On the other hand, if the script is

Many organizations use limited (restricted) users and system policies and group policies to ensure users cannot access certain areas of the computer or install most off-the-shelf software. However, these approaches require the network administrator to be very knowledgeable, and to spend large amounts of time setting and maintaining the policies. The alternative: a whitelist-based security solution.
