Partner Intelligence to Speak at IB Summit 2010

It is once again time for Information Builders' annual user group conference. From June 5th through 9th, Summit 2010 will be taking place at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee, Florida.

At this event, Information Builders will roll out WebFOCUS 8, the latest release of their Business Intelligence software product. If you would like to see examples of last year's presentations, see my earlier blog.

Also, Partner Intelligence will present with a government agency to demonstrate how we automated the conversion of their mainframe batch processes from using the legacy FOCUS product to WebFOCUS. It's amazing -- hundreds of reporting jobs were literally converted in just seconds.

If you are thinking of manually converting mainframe FOCUS to WebFOCUS, you need to see our presentation before you waste any of your company's time and money.  If you use legacy 4GLs (FOCUS, RAMIS, NOMAD), QMF/SQL, DYL280, Crystal Reports, or other old reporting tools, see how Partner Intelligence can leverage your existing application investments by translating into modern technology.

During the presentation, we will explain our DAPPER Methodology for automating the retirement of your legacy reporting tools. We will show you the tools we use to automatically scan, discover, and inventory your existing applications, dramatically reducing your upfront analysis time and cost. Then, we will show the automated conversion tools to translate legacy reporting applications into web-based BI with no manual coding effects needed.

Nowhere else will you will get the time and cost savings you will achieve from working with Partner Intelligence.  Manual BI conversions are a thing of the past, only proposed by services firms who want to provide you with a team of consultants for long, expensive engagements.

Contact me directly if you are attending Summit 2010 and would like to meet face-to-face to discuss how we can work together to dramatically reduce the time, costs, and risks of your enterprise BI consolidation efforts.
