How do you make a DEMO presentation about database techology interesting? Whip out a few interesting sports stats. Panoratio Database Images has a tool that compresses the footprint of a database by a factor of 10 (their claim) and makes it easier to look at all the dimensions. To illustrate this, they took NFL data from Stats Inc. and drilled down on the the Seahawks and Steelers. One interesting fact came up. When the Steelers play indoor against an NFC team, they’ve won 100% of the time when the temp is between 66 and 71 degrees. When the temp is 72 degrees or greater, they’ve lost 100% of the time. Game time temp last Sunday: 68 degrees.
