Brotherhood Mutual and WebFOCUS BI

Rob talks about WebFOCUS
Rob Fosnaugh, manager of Business Intelligence for Brotherhood Mutual in Fort Wayne, Indiana, was recently recorded talking about his feelings on Information Builders and their BI software product, WebFOCUS.

For more than ninety years, Brotherhood Mutual has provided insurance for America's churches and ministries. They purchased the WebFOCUS product about five years ago. Despite having no previous WebFOCUS experience at the time, Rob leveraged his background in other BI products to quickly develop sophisticated insurance dashboards with IB's software.

If you are interested in learning more about how Brotherhood Mutual uses WebFOCUS, you can download Rob's presentation from the Summit 2011 annual users' conference held in Dallas.

Brotherhood Mutual is more than just a commercial venture; they share a common vision with their customers and actively assist Christian ministries. For example, see their work with a comic book aimed at helping today's children deal with moral dilemmas.
