Summit 2010 Winner!

At Information Builders' Summit 2010 annual users conference, Partner Intelligence gave away a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort Noise-Cancelling Headphones.

Congratulations go to Jaclyn from Indiana!  Presenting the prize is Partner Intelligence's Account Manager Eric Bulmahn.

(By the way, noise-cancelling headphones are a useful item to have when flying in and out of the kid-oriented Orlando airport).

We selected Jaclyn's name randomly from surveys completed by conference attendees.  As a result of our BI survey, we confirmed our belief that companies are extremely interested in WebFOCUS BI dashboard technologies. 

Individuals are also looking for advice on how to strategically use Business Intelligence within their organizations.  Also on their minds are efficient ways to replace their legacy reporting applications with modern BI products such as WebFOCUS.

The days were long and I did not have opportunities to blog while working the event.  I will post some after-the-fact blogs soon.
