A Fun Observation on Reporting in Consumer and Enterprise Products...

"Reporting trumps analysis. There is too much emphasis on delivering raw numbers; not enough emphasis on presenting information in ways that allow users to understand what is going on. Put another way: success is defined as delivering accurate data filtered as the user has defined it. What if success was about delivering new insights about what’s going on in the enterprise? "

OMG, I love the quote! That is exactly what I think log management should focus on!
