University of Michigan BI Professionals
Present at iStrategy User Conference

TIMONIUM, MD. (Sept. 25, 2008)

Four Business Intelligence professionals from the University of Michigan presented at the 2nd iStrategy User Conference on Sept. 24.

The conference, which was sponsored by Microsoft, was attended by more than 100 iStrategy customers from over 20 higher education institutions across the country.

Gary Uptigrove of University Human Resources (UHR) presented “HR Metrics at the University of Michigan.” The presentation included a demonstration of HR Metrics, a web-based tool co-developed by U-M and iStrategy to assist in the review and analysis of Human Resources and Financial data.

Tom Amerman and Mary Byrkit of Michigan Administration Information Services (MAIS) presented “Financial Reporting at University of Michigan.” The pair discussed how U-M is using a financial management product developed with iStrategy to deliver real-time project balance information to research faculty and staff.

John Gohsman of MAIS led the “Executive/Leadership Forum,” which provided an opportunity for leaders from attending institutions to share ideas about iStrategy product use and vendor support, and provide input on product and user group direction.
