WebFOCUS Presentations and Information

Many people come to my blog searching for presentations on WebFOCUS or iWay Software from either the software vendor, Information Builders, or from one of their BI customers.

One good source of IBI presentations is the archive of vendor and customer presentations from past Summit events (the annual users group meeting). See my blog postings for more information.

IBI provides good information on their product webpage. You can also check out their YouTube channel!

I also found about a hundred IBI presentations being shared on a site called SlideShare. These included documents from a variety of sources including IBI Executive Briefings, User Group presentations, Lunch and Learns, RFPs, industry analysts, and others.

Of course, you might consider contacting your local IBI sales office as a good source of information. Look up one of Information Builders' worldwide offices on their contact page.

If you would rather talk to an objective third-party, feel free to contact me with your questions about Information Builders' enterprise BI product offerings.

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.
