Maybe BI Is Dead After All
Or maybe not, but we did find this amusing. We opened an entry
on Blink Logic
on Nov. 28 thusly:
"Robert Lendvai was as confused as anybody when he read RCPU's declaration
that IBM's planned buyout of Cognos meant the end of business intelligence
as we know it. The chief marketing office of Blink Logic, an Ottawa-based
BI firm, even had a bit of a career crisis: 'I wondered whether maybe I should
resign,' Lendvai said."
That was at the end of November. This week -- and we couldn't make this up
-- we got an e-mail from former colleague Chris Kanaracus letting us know that
Lendvai actually did resign on Dec. 5. We called to check it out...and it's
true! A company spokesperson cited "personal reasons" for the resignation,
and we certainly wish Lendvai well in any case.
But, seriously, we don't even need to make a joke here, do we? The whole thing
is just too bizarre...and too funny.
