The Performance Perspectives Blog: Data is beautiful

We often talk about the need to build a complete picture from all our data. Sometimes, that means building a mashup that puts your sales data on a map. In other cases, it means combining data from your SAP applications with data that's not from your SAP applications.
These are, no doubt, very valuable activities. Critical to our continued livelihood, even.
Sometimes, though, all that data can add up to something beautiful, too. Like this 26-gigapixel picture of Paris, courtesy of Mashable.
On the blog, Stan Schroeder writes: "Paris 26 Gigapixels is a stitching of 2,346 photos, which add up to a high-resolution panoramic view of Paris. When we say high-resolution, we mean it; the end result is a 26-gigapixel (354,159×75,570 px) interactive photo. You can move around by clicking anywhere on the image and moving your mouse, and you can zoom with your mouse wheel (alternatively, you can use the arrows and +/- keys on the keyboard)."
The best business analytics software should drive you to make smarter decisions. Looking at all that data in this form, I think the smartest decision I could make would be to move back to France.
