My summer Sundays usually start with a walk along the shores of the mighty Atlantic Ocean. Yesterday I was shocked to be joined by a school of dolphins who were soaring into the air in a remarkable show of synchronicity. It was honestly like they were in training for the synchronized swimming event in the upcoming Olympics. We rarely get to see dolphins on the shores of New York so I decided to take a series of action shots. iPhone users will understand that in bright daylight you point your iPhone at where you think the action is happening and hope for the best. Hence the photo above of a once in a lifetime spectacle. What? I missed it completely? How could that happen?
The point of the story? Business users often point their business intelligence tools blindly at where they think the action is happening within their data and have similar outcomes. Action Apps and the Actian Cloud Action Platform are designed to avoid this.
