Re: Seems smart, but late?
Good questions, Lorna. I'd say Autonomy and Vertica have capabilities that aren't matched by open-source products. Maybe parts of what they do, but not head-to-head competition from purely open source products. Maybe I'm missing an option, though, so I welcome comment on alternatives.

Seems smart, but late?
HP opening up Autonomy and Vertica as platforms seems like a smart move, but what do you think are the odds it can get the developer ecosystem at this point that it needs to make a big play? What's the benefit for a developer to buy into Autonomy's code vs. going a more reliably open route?

All Data Not Big Data
The industry has started to use "big data" as almost synonymous with analytics, no matter the size of the data pool being analyzed. Nice to see a conference organizer grounding things in reality.
