I am pleased to be writing this first blog entry, having recently joined Business & Decision (B&D) in their Business Intelligence practice in North America.
B&D is a global consultancy with offices in 18 countries, 2800 consultants (200 in the US), and over 300 million in revenue (65% coming from the BI practice).
I am very excited to take on my new role as a Sr. Solutions Architect focused on growing our QlikView practice in North America. We are in a very good position to leverage our collective experience implementing enterprise BI solutions on a global scale. Whether it is BI Competency Center (BICC) development, ERP integration, or a comprehensive data governance strategy we can add significant value to QlikView deployments within the enterprise.
Over the course of the last 10 years I have had the good fortune of getting to know many of the fine people that work at QlikTech. As both a customer and partner I have also been a champion of QlikView and the basic principles that differentiate the product in the BI marketplace.
I now have a great opportunity as B&D has given me the stage in which to share this passion with the market by explaining what I have come to take for granted when it comes to analytics. BI can be agile, flexible, fast, and spontaneous but still be properly governed and compliant within enterprise standards by a properly designed QlikView solution.
I will use this forum to share my thoughts on what differentiates QlikView and B&D - making our partnership a very compelling story when it comes to solving the BI needs of the enterprise.
