If this sounds like you, you won’t want to miss hearing Wayne Eckerson and the opportunity to ask your questions live.  The workshop (see abstract below) is scheduled for Monday, October 19th from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Many of you will know Wayne from his years of experience as a business intelligence analyst, speaker, author as well as blogger. Wayne is a wonderful blend of someone who sees future trends and the big picture, but also has a very pragmatic approach driven by years of real-world experience with customer use cases. The workshop will of course be educational but the big benefit here is Wayne’s decades of experience – talk to him about your struggle and he’s likely seen and heard it all before.
