Extra Value from Your iPad

I know you have lots of practical reasons for buying an Apple iPad--mobile computing, games, e-mail, web surfing, book reading, etc.--but if you run out of ideas, here are some more.

When you don't have the iPad in your hands (how often would that be?), you can use it as a digital photo frame.  See The iFrame Dock for more information on a $50 accessory to get the most of your iPad.

Plus, if you sit the iFrame Dock next to your bed, you can turn off the photo displays when you are ready to sleep and switch to a sound machine app.  Or download one of the many clock applications in the Apple App Store and display the time on your giant iPad screen.

I am a project-based software consultant, specializing in automating transitions from legacy reporting applications into modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics using Information Builders' WebFOCUS. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven Best Practice methodologies, software tools, and templates.

I was educated at Valparaiso University and the University of Cincinnati, where I graduated summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders and for over a dozen years served in regional pre- and post-sales technical leadership roles. Also, for several years I led the US technical services teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the Midwest custom software services arm of Xerox.

Since 2007, I have provided enterprise BI services such as: strategic advice; architecture, design, and software application development of intelligence systems (interactive dashboards and mobile); data warehousing; and automated modernization of legacy reporting. My experience with BI products include WebFOCUS (vendor certified expert), R, SAP Business Objects (WebI, Crystal Reports), Tableau, and others.
