Ron Powell

Thanks for visiting my blog. As co-founder of the BeyeNETWORK, acquired by TechTarget in 2010, I am privileged to participate in many industry-related activities as a BeyeNETWORK expert covering business intelligence and analytics. These events provide me with a unique insider perspective into the business intelligence ecosystem, its products and the vendors that provide those products. I'll be sharing that invaluable information with you through this blog, which will also be a reflection my business philosophy. And, just to make this interesting, I'll be sure to include my personal point of view on a wide range of topics and share some of the stories of people I meet in my travels.

Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog411 (1-800-466-4411). This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are on the road.

Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time manually dialing the number. With this new service, if I am driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course but don't know the number, I can hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed. 

The voice at the other end says, 'City & State."  I say, '"Garland , Texas."  He says, "Business, Name or Type of Service."  I say, "Firewheel Golf Course."  He says, "Connecting" and Firewheel answers the phone.  How great is that?  This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!
