Access to and the use of appropriate information is fundamental to enhancing an organizations productivity. Consider that 30% of a manager's time is spent collecting information and 43% of managers agree that the inability to understand what information is relevant delays decision making. The fundamental problem is that most systems are still constructed around the notion of a database not on how the human brain needs to have information presented nor how business process is implemented - thoughtfully and consistently. This is further complicated by the lack of friendly User Interfaces which limit the manner within which visualization and interactivity are enabled. See this two minute talk by Visual I/O chief executive Angela Shen-Hsieh as she explains these concepts eloquently.
