Modern organizations need systems that start with an emphasis on collecting the rich data needed for future analysis. The modern organization must design systems with an understanding of data and UI simplicity. The systems must be highly scalable, they must incorporate an understanding that the ROI of Data is real, they must lower training costs, they must allow for virtual and diverse work forces. And, after they do all that, they must enable rapid change so that the organization is never slowed down by their systems. – Nicolas Nowinski
