Entrepreneurs Night

We searched high and low to find the innovative solutions that our peers have accomplished and we’re bringing them to the IRMAC Data Warehouse/ Business Intelligence SIG. The night will compose of two guests who will highlight the situation and problem they faced, outline their solution and provide a demo of their solution followed by question and answers. Our guests for the evening will be Hannan Chervinsky and Corry Pistea. Your input is also welcome!
