Who Am I?

My name is Wayne Kurtz and I am a Business Intelligence Architect and Consultant.  I have sold and delivered Business Intelligence (BI) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) solutions in both the public and private sectors in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Northern Africa for over 20 years.

Before my interest in BI and EA I worked in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) area delivering solutions to small and medium sized organizations throughout the United States.  I’ve also worked for a national retailer, a large hardware and software maker (DEC) and before my IT career I had a background in the public sector. I count as my key skills an understanding of BI and EA from both the business and technical perspectives and a belief that BI and EA are much more closely related than is often considered.  Hopefully I will be able to communicate this idea to you.  Whether you agree with it or not, I look forward to exchanging ideas with you.  Your engagement is what will make the conversation fruitful for all of us.

Currently I live in the Blue Bell, Pennsylvania area with my wife.  We enjoy golf and traveling together, have two grown children, one in Washington, DC and one in Taipei, Taiwan (formerly in Sunnyvale, California) and two grand children.  We call our endeavor “birkdale computing”.
