    Analytics can become more mainstream only as it gets cheaper, gives clear benefits and is facilitated by easy financing, licensing norms , access and software interfaces. Some of these have been facilitated by on demand cloud computing licensing.

    Can a small cafe or startup or business in Ohio or Tennessee use analytics for optimizing sales, revenue, ad spend , menus? Do they have access to cheap easy to rent analytics software?.. Walk the talk ,dear Jim

    I watched this video and would substitute the word "boring" or "lengthy" for "powerful." I've seen much better stories for advanced analytics than this.
