More preparation went in this year than ever for the 2011 ASUG BusinessObjects User Conference. It will be a very busy 3 days with a few presentations, lots of meetings, a few parties, and a new product announcement.
I will be wearing multiple hats (CEO and BusinesObjects User/Developer/Expert) as usual and that is reflected in the presentations I am giving:
The first, Location Intelligence and Dashboards is focused on the area of focus and expertise that I have gained over the last few years. I will share my experiences and perspectives on how geographic data visualization and discovery will become increasingly important.
The second presentation, SAP BusinessObjects (Xcelsius) Gurus Dashboard Methodology 101 , will be co-presented with Mico Yuk founder of EverythingXcelsius.com is going to be lots of fun and will be a huge draw. We will talk about how to avoid common pitfalls in designing enterprise dashboards with SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards. We did this session at Sapphire to small crowd who seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves.
The third presentation you will have to wake up early for, but I promise it is worth it! This session Pervasive Location Analytics and A Billion Dollar Opportunity, will take a look at how we utilize location based visualization and how that translates in the enterprise.
If you are at the conference, stop by the Centigon Solutions booth and say hi. I would love to hear any feedback, ideas, thoughts, and anything else you want to share.
