Response to System W

I heard that the Wizard to W rename was because of Avis' Wizard system.

I was just discussing ADL today with another ex-Comshare developer and lamenting its loss. If Comshare had ever figured out how to merge that with Essbase, it would have been a killer combination. That and not get successfully sued by Arbor.

Instead we have spent countless years trying to cobble together ETL tools to do what ADL did with ease. I guess that's what ODI is for nowadays. Hopefully ADL would have scaled with the times but we'll never know now.

Anyway, System W was where I cut my multidimensonal teeth.
