Thank you everyone for your submissions to the "I" in B"I" contest. This challenge was designed to encourage the community to share their stories and best practices in the world of business intelligence. Although we were constrained by some legal rules and could only keep it to North America, I'm happy to see the community was willing to share their interesting stories. And even though the contest is now officially over, please continue to share your stories in the use of BI.
And now for the winners....
I’m proud to announce the winners of the “I” in B”I” contest are:
- Krishna Tangudu with a tale of his beginning journey through the world of BI. Read his perspective and offer your advice and guidance as pros and compadres along the same journey. I wish Krishna the best of luck in his planned use of HANA on his humanitarian project.
- Bala Prabahar who took us down the database memory lane as he told his tale going from Informix to In-Memory. Read his blog and get his take on how BI has evolved over the years.
- Ken Hartman who has lived multiple lives as a BI consumer, evangelist, purveyor and also became an SAP Mentor for the BusinessObjects products. Read his journey and learn how much BI usage has increased over the years.
And a special thanks to Tammy Powlas who not only told her B"I" story but continually shares her knowledge of BW and the use of BusinessObjects technology and was especially helpful in offering guidance in the development and promotion of this challenge. It is humbling to learn and hear from all of you who are out there pioneering the use of BI everyday!
Krishna, Bala and Ken, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for prize details.
