The Analytics team strives to provide powerful yet easy to use tools for our customers to gain business insight with the data they store in Salesforce. Most conventional business analytics products are not real time, they pulled their data from OLTP operational data store to a data warehouse where DSS queries are run. This severely curtails the usefulness and relevancy of the analysis because the data is always stale.
