Don’t Miss Our BO Services Webinar on May 22!

Webinar: ‘Maintaining Business Objects with BI@S’

5/22/14 @ 1pm EST

If you use Business Objects or Crystal Reports today, have you been able to keep up with your business needs, roll out new tools and perform system upgrades?  Business Objects is a multi-tool solution requiring a diverse skill set which is difficult to find in one person.

To keep BO up to date with the business and support packages normally requires multiple resources and so:

  • Support costs rise


  • Business Objects support drops where users stop using the solution


This Webinar will explain how Southern Maryland Electric Co-Op (SMECO) transformed their internal BO systems from shelf-ware to a core BI solution by choosing BI@S for their BI support.

At BI@S, we can maintain your Business Objects as a service for the cost of 1 FTE. (Approx. $9K per month)

See how BI@S has helped SMECO:

  1. Re-engage with business users and their BI requirements
  2. Expand their functional BI footprint
  3. Upgrade their technology
  4. Build new or refined BO reports
  5. Take advantage of new tools, such as Predictive Analytics, from the existing license agreement
  6. Take advantage of new BO functions like mobile reporting

Be like SMECO; breathe new life into Business Objects and your Business Intelligence by attending our webinar on BI@S Business Objects Support May 22, 2014; and you will see that maybe your own BI Initiative needs a similar BI@S boost!


This webinar will consist of 30 minutes of explanation, followed by 30 minutes of questions from participants.  Questions during this period will be taken only from participants, not from vendor representatives.

Webinar: ‘Smart Meter Value’

Webinar: ’Smart Meter Value’

Benefiting From A Greater Customer Understanding


Thursday, 4/24/14 @ 1pm EST


Most utilities; whether municipal, co-ops or IOUs; are becoming Meter Data-Centric, but are not seeing the customer value.  Metro Resources is holding a webinar to demo their utility data tools and show how they are driving customer value from smart meter data, thus Smart Meter Value (SMV).


Using US case studies, Metro Resources will show you how we are creating central customer databases from smart meter, external planning and utility customer data sources using our utility data model.


In the webinar, Metro Resources will demo our Smart Meter Value tools that enable utilities to gain a much deeper understanding of their customer base through:

  • Customer Segmentation
  • Residential, Commercial and Industrial scenarios
  • Energy counseling or Energy Completions

We will explain our SMV Live Analytics Trial approach. In a trial:

  • We build your central customer repository at no cost, risk to you or time from your FTE’s
  • You segment your customer, and you can work with customers on energy comparisons/savings
  • You will see the value of SMV by seeing your customers differently

Attend the webinar and you will see for yourself how your utility can deliver on customer value from Smart Meter Data.
