Information Builders Announces Summit 2011 Details

Information Builders today announced that their annual users group--Summit 2011--will be held in Dallas, Texas, from June 12th through 16th.  It is being held at the Hilton Anatole hotel, which is downtown and not far from the airport.

I recently stayed at the Hilton Anatole and can tell you that it is wonderful. Although, I doubt that I get the same upgrade to a corner two-room suite during the Summit event.

Be sure to register quickly and save on Information Builders' early-bird-special.  When you arrive at Summit 2011, come to the vendor displays and say hello to me!

For more details, see the IBI website.

About Me

My photo

I am a project-based consultant, helping data-intensive firms use agile methods and automation tools to replace legacy reporting and bring in modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics. For several world-class vendors, I led services teams specializing in providing software implementation and custom application development. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven methodologies and automated software tools.

During twenty years of technical consulting, I have been blessed to work with smart people from some of the world's most respected organizations, including: 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, graduating summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders, the vendor of WebFOCUS BI and iWay enterprise integration products, and for over a dozen years served in branch leadership roles. For several years, I also led technical teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the 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.
