Looking for feedback on a software concept 
Hi all,

I've been a reader of this site for a few years now and have only now reached the point that I've something to contribute. I'm looking for some feedback on a concept for a software application that I'm developing (although it isn't currently available to anyone). I have some teaser copy here and I'm trying to assess interest from consultants and BAs; I'd appreciate any feedback than anyone may have:

NB. Please ignore the "PUZZLEPOINT" name, that's just a randomly-generated placeholder.
Improve your business. Systematically.

1. Model any process using simple visual elements
2. Run simulations to find waste, bottlenecks, and bad design
3. Don't guess where changes should be made, pinpoint them

No need to learn complicated modelling languages. No need to take specialist training courses. And absolutely no need for expensive consultants.

PUZZLEPOINT transforms the unglamorous process of improving business processes into something... well... not exactly glamorous, but certainly cheap, easy, and profitable.
I'm very interested to know if this is something that anyone would be interested in.  The target audience is essentially meant to be small to medium-sized firms or BA consultants or consultancies.  Even if you're not interested (perhaps you believe there is already a product that does this) I'd be interested in any negative feedback as well.

And as I mentioned, please don't take this as spam; since you couldn't even sign up for the product even if you wanted to! I'm just looking to validate a concept. However if you would like to discuss it further; I'm very happy for you to email me at p@carletonsojourner.com

Kind regards,
Peter

The title of this article poses a pertinent question for modern enterprises that increasingly make use of powerful high-end analytic data engines, such as Hadoop clusters and cloud-based data warehouses (see this article by Forbes, which deals with similar questions). The challenge for enterprises that use analytic engines is one of data movement...

I recently walked into a large shopping centre on a mission to buy a christening present for a friends son. I was very clear on what I wanted I just needed to find it… I was on my lunch break so I need to get the job done as I had a meeting that I needed to attend back in the office straight after lunch! I am not a frequent shopper and to b...

Have you woken up in the middle of night thinking how am I going to steer my team, give them the direction that they need but at the same time not constraint in what they want to build/deliver. I recently went through one of these night- I have joined an interesting project where we have very tight timescale to deliver a tech product to operational...
