Question: Why hasn't the data warehouse and BI been more active in areas that go beyond just making money? What about the environment? What about the health of the global population? What about decreasing dependence on foreign oil? What about global warming?

Adrienne Tannenbaum's Answer: How do you know the data warehouse/BI movement hasn't been active there? Because you haven't read about it? Because the majority of conference speakers are not from environmental or public sector applications? Maybe you don't hear from them because they don't have as much money to publicize their work!
