Call for Inspired Business Intelligence Case Studies

 At this year’s InfoSol Business Intelligence Seminar (IBIS 2012), we are planning to run a special Executive track consisting of 12 Inspired Business Intelligence solution case studies. We are looking for submissions and if your case study is selected for inclusion, you will receive an additional $500 discount off your IBIS registration.

So what makes an Inspired Business Intelligence solution?


When an Education insurance organization decided to turn its client coverage information into a data mart that could be accessed by its clients through a BI dashboard on their web site to compare their risk coverage types and amounts against their peers and still maintain anonymity – that was inspired!

When an Aluminum manufacturer hooked up temperature and wind speed monitoring appliances to a BI solution that both monitored and analyzed the changes and automatically alerted the supervisors on their mobile devices to shut down parts of the plant when thresholds were exceeded – that was inspired!

When a hospital created a BI solution to monitor and improve the patient experience at all their hospital emergency departments (and they did) – that was truly inspired! 

Tell us about your inspired business intelligence solution.


Just email ibis@infosol.com a description of your organization’s inspired solution focusing on the following points :


- Why was it created? 

- How was it created? 

- What were the benefits?


Please include any additional diagrams, screenshots, documents, quotes , photos or anything else that will help to further explain the inspired solution. Also provide your contact information and the best times to call to discuss your entry. 

Submit your entry ASAP to be included in the selection process.
