2017 MultiValue Industry End-of-Year Recap


R ecap is our annual tradition. We look back at the end of each year and see how the landscape has changed. Normally, a tradition is about doing and seeing and saying the same things. But if the years have taught me anything, "the same things" are never what we find.

2017 has been a challenging year for many businesses. The global economy and nearly every local economy have faced rapid changes. From crypto-currencies to virtual companies, the very foundational definitions of what money and technology and work mean have shifted. We asked some of our friends in the MultiValue community to talk about what they see and how they are preparing for the coming year.

With Informer 5, organizations can quickly connect to their traditional or uncommon databases, spreadsheets, and unstructured data streams all without time-consuming warehousing or cubing. Users can access, blend, and cleanse data in a few easy steps; then utilize data discovery to explore, analyze, and visualize information relevant to them. Informer enables end users to easily manipulate and interact with data, collaborate with colleagues, and even create personalized home pages.
