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.

I recently spoke with Kevin Webster, BI Reporting Manager for Protrans, a third-party logistics provider. Protrans has utilized BI dashboards that have set up the essential KPI metrics to assist each department in meeting their goals. Protrans evaluated over 25 of the top BI companies against 100 individual metrics with customer service and functionality for growth as the most critical. Kevin also talked about how many of the current BI trends are being incorporated into the operational needs of the end user. In this podcast he shares his insights regarding how they are effectively addressing key initiatives around self-service and big data within the transportation industry. Protrans has successfully provided dashboards and reporting to their large network of customers. Click here to listen to this podcast now or read it here.
