There were some excellent sessions presented by Tobin Gilman at the IOUC today. I have known Tobin since his days at Hyperion and, ironically, he also worked at Intergraph in Huntsville, AL when I worked at Intergraph.
One of the things in his presentation was an ad for a virtual tradeshow where you can see some Hyperion related customer success stories. The virtual tradeshow will be on Feb 3, 2011. This event has two sessions on EPM/BI. At 1 pm eastern, there is is session "Better performance visiblity With Oracle Business Intelligence Applications" featuring a company named Automatic Weapons. At 1:30 pm eastern, there is a session entitled "Leveraging your ERP Investments with Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Solutions" with General Dynamics. Is it a bit ironic that both of these companies are defense related entities?
Despite the fact that I often work half-days (12 hours), I am one of the luckiest geeks in the world. I am married to the perfect wife as she is smart, beautiful and provides a tremendous amount of support that makes it possible for me to do all of the things that I do.
