"We are pleased and proud to feature Mr. Wayne W. Eckerson, Director of TDWI Research, a respected analyst and distinguished National TDWI presenter, as our facilitator for this important topic," said Jon M. Deutsch, TDWI NY Chapter president and senior vice president of RCG Information Technology. "Wayne will be joined by Tony Berman from Pershing LLC and David J. Ramos from LinkShare Corp. who will present their Performance Dashboard solutions, implementation, challenges, and business results."

Users move through successive layers of information in a Performance Dashboard in a carefully guided and systematic manner. When aligned with strategic objectives and plans, Performance Dashboards empower users to work more efficiently and effectively towards a common set of goals, blending the once-distinct disciplines of BI and performance management into a powerful agent of organizational change. 10:15 - 10:45 Networking Break 10:45 - 12:00 Case Study Presentations and Discussion Panelists: Tony Berman (Pershing LLC) and David J. Ramos (LinkShare Corp.) Tony and David will demonstrate their Performance Dashboard solutions, discuss their approach and implementation challenges, technology, business drivers and business results, and lessons learned. Wayne Eckerson will facilitate discussion and questions from the audience to better understand the solution.
