<p><strong>A SCARFOLK SANCTIONED BOOK</strong></p><p><strong>AUTHORISED EDITION, AS SEEN ON THE RADIO</strong></p><p><em>The Scarfolk Annual</em> is the facsimile of a book discovered in a charity shop in the north west of England in August 2018. The shop, and indeed town, do not wish to be identified as they are keen to 鈥渄iscourage the 鈥榦ccult-totalitarian tourism鈥?that as afflicted other areas of Britain鈥?as people hunt for further socio-archaeological traces of the mysterious, missing town of Scarfolk 鈥?Britain鈥檚 own Brutalist Atlantis.</p><p>Apart from the archive of Scarfolk materials which was sent anonymously to the late Dr Ben Motte and formed the basis of the book <em>Discovering Scarfolk</em>, this children鈥檚 annual is, to date, the only complete artefact from Scarfolk ever to be unearthed 鈥榠n the wild鈥?</p><p>It鈥檚 clear <em>The Scarfolk Annual</em> was not written to entertain children at Christmastime; its purpose was to indoctrinate young minds; in fact, one might go as far as to say destroy young minds, to an end that has been lost to us.</p>

<p>Business intelligence (BI) has evolved over several years as organizations have extended their online transaction processing (OLTP) capabilities and applications to support their routine operations. With online analytical processing (OLAP), organizations have also established the capability to extract internal and external data from a variety of sources to specifically obtain intelligence about non-routine and often less-structured arrangements. BI therefore refers to applications and technologies that are used to gather, provide access to, and analyze data and information about the operations of an organization. It has the capability of providing comprehensive insight into the more volatile factors affecting the business and its operations, thereby facilitating enhanced decision-making quality and contributing to the creation of business value. Larger and more sophisticated organizations have long been exploiting these capabilities. <b>Business Intelligence for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises</b> (SMEs) guides SMEs in replicating this experience to provide an agile roadmap toward business sustainability. </p><br /><p>The book points out that successful BI implementations have generated significant increases in revenue and cost savings, however, the failure rates are also very high. More importantly, it emphasizes that a full range of BI capabilities is not the exclusive purview of large organizations. It shows how SMEs make extensive use of BI techniques to develop the kind of agility endowing them with the organizational capability to sense and respond to opportunities and threats in an increasingly dynamic business environment. It points to the way to a market environment in which smaller organizations could have a larger role. In particular, the book explains that by establishing the agility to leverage internal and external data and information assets, SMEs can enhance their competitiveness by having a comprehensive understanding of the key to an agile roadmap for business sustainability. </p>
