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.

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 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.
