Speaking of Data Mashup

I've been invited to give a presentation to the Data Management Association of Minnesota on Data Mashup this Wednesday.

Also, last month I was interviewed by TDWI's Linda Briggs on the topic of Data Mashup. Read the full transcript.

In both of these venues, two of the key points are:

Data Mashup is a compromise between database administrators and Excel jockeys. It allows the flexibility and self-service power, while maintaining security, integrity, and transparency.

Data Mashup is a complement to a data warehouse, and not a replacement. A data warehouse is not a goal, but rather a solution to certain problems. Data Mashup solves some of the same problems, and some different ones. While there is some overlap, both technologies have there place.
