Michael Cote on SQLstream

In their weekly podcast John M. Willis discusses SQLstream with Redmonk's Michael Coté.

[Edit: This originally read "In his weekly podcast, Redmonk's Michael Coté discusses SQLstream with John M. Willis."]
"Is anybody foolish enough to think that one screen is going to be able to tell you what is going on?
I've actually seen customers try [...] to do ETLs every 15 minutes in order to look at what's goin' on, aggregating your data and doing analytics on your data, [...] which is at least a 15-fold [improvement over] using a single-pane-of-glass. [If you do that,] you can avert major disasters because you're watching the trend happen.
I think that something like SQLstream, or something like that, that is watching it as it goes [...] has brilliant  potential."
The action starts at around 1:10:00 in the podcast.

Just to clarify, I think that's John talking there, not me.
