Let’s Speak BO Healthcare

There are many healthcare and healthcare related organizations using BusinessObjects both embedded in existing applications (like Epic, Cerner, McKesson) and standalone. Business Intelligence has now become an integral and essential part of healthcare reporting and analysis be it clinical, operational or financial.

Based on feedback from many BusinessObjects Healthcare customers, InfoSol is launching a new initiative to provide a forum for these organizations to share their often unique experiences and challenges as well as exchanging ideas about how to get the most out of the BusinessObjects suite for healthcare BI solutions.

Join us for the first Let’s Speak BO Healthcare conference which will be held as part of IBIS 2016 dedicated to BO Healthcare topics. In addition to attending any sessions in this conference, attendees can also attend any of the regular sessions in the main IBIS conference and InfoBurst Experience event.

The Call to Papers for Let’s Speak BO Healthcare is now open.  We invite you to submit a BO healthcare solution, case study or technical session.  Just head on over to our call for papers post where will explain how and what to submit and then use the form at the bottom of the page to send us your submission.

IBIS 2015 Keynotes

Monday

Paul Grill KeynoteLimitless Business Intelligence – Let’s Speak BO

There are many good reasons why SAP BusinessObjects is still the best BI suite on the planet. Most notably is the totally amazing and limitless business intelligence applications that organizations are creating with it every day.

Interestingly, many are finding that this can be done without making huge investments in new technology but by simply understanding and using the capabilities that exist in the core BO tools.

InfoSol CEO, Paul Grill, will share his insights on what has been happening with and around BusinessObjects in the last 12 months , show some truly Limitless BI solutions using BO and explain why the “Let’s Speak BO” movement is on fire.
