Great post, Tim. FYI - CBC Radio up here in Ottawa on Saturday had an interview with Poker commentator/player Chris Tessaro. You can hear the full interview here - http://www.cbc.ca/day6/blog/2010/11/12/playing-poker-for-a-living/ - but I thought this quote was particularly telling:

 
"Poker is a game of strategy, it's a game of mathematics, it's a game of analysis and problem-solving. What you're trying to do is remove that luck factor."
 
Substitute "business" for "poker" and you come pretty close to what our customers are doing with Business Analytics software, no?
