Amanda Dahlquist's insight:
The ease of use in plugging in one's Google Analytics credentials and letting it self-populate is wonderful. I love the graphics, as well. (Co-workers were also impressed!) My desire is for customization, however.

"Here you can find information about your county's health and how the health in your area stacks up against other counties in your state. You'll even see some of the main areas your county needs to work on to improve the health of the community."
MicroStrategy Inc. launched an assault on rival Tableau Software Inc. Tuesday with the release of a free desktop-based data visualization product, an unusual move for the normally cloud-centric business intelligence company.
Amanda Dahlquist's insight:
