Easy Acces: Is it possible for an "ordinary person" with IT assistance? I worry more about the ordinary person having access to do their own analysis. I suppose only the fit will survive, but the more ordinary people there are doing this stuff, the more often things will go kerflooey, sometimes with disastrous consequences and more difficult to trace back to the source of the problem. The source is not the indivdual who goofed, it was in putting the capability in the hands of ordinary people, when mission critical processes are involved.
Great article however!
