Information Builders’ annual users’ group for 2009 is over. As a sponsor of the event, I can say that that it was a great week in Nashville with several hundred customers attending. Speakers from a variety of companies did an outstanding job explaining how they are using Business Intelligence software to improve their organizations.

USTRANSCOM told how BI has enabled them to better transport wounded soldiers while reducing the number of beds and other medical needs. Ford Motor Company lowered operating costs by making warranty costs openly available on the web to their automobile dealers. Nationwide Insurance built an urban school portal to address student proficiency — while Nationwide would not take credit, the city increased graduation rates from less than 50% to 75% and is on its way to a goal of 90% graduation rate.

While there, I presented case studies on automating BI application development and consolidation tasks. For those of you who could not be at my sessions, I made a copy available on the web.
