WebFOCUS BI Summit 2013 Update

If you had planned to meet up with me at Summit 2013 in Orlando, I apologize.

Trying to juggle several BI projects in the US and Europe, I decided to cancel my conference trip and work instead. 

Somebody else will take my place at the joint presentation for Hercules Tires, where they will show how they used WebFOCUS dashboards to enable dynamic BI for their mobile sales force. 

I cancelled my other presentation on BI buzzwords, however, although Information Builders has asked me to convert it into a webinar and run it as soon as possible. 

Eric Bulmahn, General Manager of Partner Intelligence, will be there along with several WebFOCUS consultants so please stop by the booth and say hello. Eric plans to give away an iPad Mini. 

Contact me if you have an important topic that you still want to discuss.

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.
