Survey says? BI standardization is out, data-quality fears are easing, and cloud-based, real-time, and big-data platforms are in. Download the full report.
InformationWeek survey shows growth in cloud-based data warehousing, real-time tech, and big-data platforms, but business intelligence standardization is waning.

Some classic tech writing from back in the day: a walk through the (paper) manuals that came with Macs from the early 90's. It's great to read this because they assume almost nothing of the user -- there are explanations of how to hold a mouse, what "clicking" means, and so on -- and so they try to explain the ideas. And they do a really good job of it!

While a perfect system requires no documentation at all, being so intuitive to use that everything is obvious, very few physical systems ever can reach that. The bridge between an imperfect system and usability is often good explanation, and this really feels like a classic of technical writing.

Yosemite could use as good a definition of Save versus Save As, as this circa-1991 Macintosh User Guide.
