Summit 2009 (June 7-11)

Mark your calendar for Information Builders' 2009 users’ group conference held on June 7th through the 11th. Like last year, we are going to the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee.

Take advantage of this opportunity to network with WebFOCUS professionals from other companies and learn about their BI projects. If you are interested, I can coordinate breakfast, lunch, or dinner get-togethers to help you connect with the right people.

Summit is the place to increase your WebFOCUS knowledge -- listen to excellent speakers, attend workshops, and talk one-on-one with product managers and technical gurus. If you have a difficult BI problem at work, visit the Expert Room where top-quality vendor representatives (field technical managers, corporate technical support, and product managers) will dig in to figure out and resolve your issues.

To learn more about the Summit, visit IBI's website. I hope to see you there!

I am a project-based software consultant, specializing in automating transitions from legacy reporting applications into modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics using Information Builders' WebFOCUS. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven Best Practice methodologies, software tools, and templates.

I was educated at Valparaiso University and the University of Cincinnati, where I graduated summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders and for over a dozen years served in regional pre- and post-sales technical leadership roles. Also, for several years I led the US technical services teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the Midwest custom software services arm of Xerox.

Since 2007, I have provided enterprise BI services such as: strategic advice; architecture, design, and software application development of intelligence systems (interactive dashboards and mobile); data warehousing; and automated modernization of legacy reporting. My experience with BI products include WebFOCUS (vendor certified expert), R, SAP Business Objects (WebI, Crystal Reports), Tableau, and others.
