Who Am I?

My name is Wayne Kurtz and I was a Business Intelligence Architect for over 30 years.  I 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.

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.  I believe that BI and EA are much more convergent now than ever. This convergence is fueled by the growing role of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in all things computing.  This is especially true when we consider the evolving nature of the interaction between individuals and organizations, the things they exchange and activities they engage in, the places where they can be found, the events they respond to, and what motivates them to do what they do.  Hopefully I will be able to communicate this idea to you

Whether you agree with me 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 Austin, Texas area with my wife.  We enjoy our kids (two generations of them), genealogy, golf, pickleball and traveling.

We call our endeavor “birkdale computing”.
