Oranges vs. Data

Oranges used to grow everywhere in Florida when I moved here in the early 1980's.

Most side roads had Orange farms that ran for miles.

I imagine that Oranges that grew on the trees, were sold for lots of money.

And I imagine they squeezed the Oranges into Juice.

However, with the Real Estate boom few years back, lots of those Orange trees are now housing developments.

And so we accumulate data, kind of grows on trees.

And the role of the Business Intelligence analyst is to squeeze that raw data into Juice / Information.

You see, not all the data has value and gets discarded, the peel.

However, the concentrated juice / info is very valuable commodity.

And can be leveraged in many ways.

So here's to the Oranges & Data!

I'll drink to that!
