Analysis Paralysis

It seems as though there are an ever-increasing number of companies billing themselves as purveyors of data analysis software – particularly for purposes of intelligence analysis and fraud investigation.  Companies like SAS, i2, Centrifuge Systems, Chiliad, Aster Data Systems and Tableau Software – just to name a few – have all crossed my radar recently.  It’s interesting to watch these companies branch out.  It seems that many of the got their start as academic projects or government funded/targeted corporations but they are now expanding into the private sector with gusto.  With all these tools to choose from, I think I need a tool to help me select one.  But, I’m all in favor of competition.  Let the games begin.
