Metric Engine:  Reinventing the Data Supply Chains for Business explores a discipline—quantitative business analytics—that is ripe for a disruptive technology.  Metric-generating systems, like finance, risk, and MIS, were among the first business systems automated, and their fragmented architectures and disorganized data structures can no longer meet the growing demands of the 21st Century enterprise.  The principles described in this book show how to meet these demands, with systems every bit as radical as Internet search engines have been, and with as far-reaching consequences.
