Thanks to Partner Intelligence Summit 2012 Team

I want to thank the individuals who helped work Information Builders' Summit 2012 in Orlando.

With over one thousand attendees interested in BI software application development, we could not have handled all of the questions without a full onsite Partner Intelligence team.

Here in the picture with me are Lou DiPaolo from Philadelphia, PA (on the left in the green shirt), Eric Bulmahn from Indianapolis, IN (in the blue shirt), and Marisa Guy from Chattanooga, TN (in the black shirt). Missing at the time of this photo opportunity was John Lewis from Columbus, Ohio.

Behind the scenes, our VP of Marketing Ben Dolan back at the Cincinnati corporate headquarters helped coordinate all of the small details as well as put out press releases.

Another key individual was Shawn Davies from Boomerang Design Group. Like in previous years, Shawn did a great job with brochures, signs, and other graphic material. Shawn's tri-fold helped explain Partner Intelligence's three main services of strategic BI advice, dashboard application development, and automated BI legacy modernization as well as provide a map of Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure for the fun offsite event.

It is truly a blessing to have such a great team representing the Partner Intelligence name. 

Summit 2012 IBI Winner of Kindle Fire

At last year's Summit, Partner Intelligence started a new tradition of raffling a special gift for one of the hard-working Information Builders conference staff.

This year at Summit 2012 in Orlando, David Glick from the New York product development group won a Kindle Fire. Here in the photo, David is accepting his free gift from Eric Bulmahn.

Congratulations, David!

When we called his name, Howard from Chicago took the stage in front of the thousand people in Orlando at Information Builders' Summit 2012 and received from Eric Bulmahn a Kindle Fire.

Congratulations, Howard!
