IBI + PI = Value 2 U

I am proud to announce that Bob Gabriel, vice president of Information Builders' Professional Services organization, has asked Partner Intelligence to be its official BI conversion partner.

We work with Information Builders to help organizations convert legacy BI tools into the enterprise WebFOCUS product using our unique automated BI consolidation methodologies and software. While our primary focus will be on FOCUS-to-WebFOCUS conversions, we will also replace other legacy products (e.g., 4GLs such as NOMAD and RAMIS).

I am honored to be selected by the software vendor of WebFOCUS as their preferred supplier of conversion services.

More information on this partnership will be made available at Information Builders' Summit 2009 being held in Nashville, TN, in June.

About Me

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 have been blessed to work with innovators from firms such as: Ford, FedEx, Procter & Gamble, Nationwide, The Wendy's Company, The Kroger Co., JPMorgan Chase, MasterCard, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Siemens, American Express, and others.

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.
