Biography

Howard Dresner has been in the software industry since 1981, when he designed technical curricula for a turnkey accounting software vendor (ERP today). Back then "timesharing" was emerging as a dominant computing model--using "dumb" terminals, connected to mainframe computers via 300 baud "acoustic couplers."

Since those early days, Mr. Dresner has had the privilege to observe, learn, and contribute from different corners of the market: as a user, an IT professional, a vendor, and as an industry analyst.

Over the past 28 years, Howard Dresner has become a well-known and respected figure in the software industry, not only for his knowledge and skill--but also for his leadership, integrity, and ethics.

Among his many roles, Mr. Dresner spent 13 years at Gartner, where he served as lead analyst for Business Intelligence (BI).

During his tenure Howard Dresner drove the definition and direction of the Business Intelligence research agenda, taking BI from an esoteric "backwater" to a mainstream and highly valued research area.

Mr. Dresner was twice selected as "analyst of the year" and inducted as a Gartner "cultural icon." He was named Distinguished Analyst in 2003 and Gartner Fellow in 2004. In addition to driving much of the research surrounding BI, he founded and chaired Gartner's European and North American Business Intelligence conferences. Both remain industry-defining events.

In 2005, Howard Dresner left Gartner and joined Hyperion Solutions as Chief Strategy Officer, successfully making the transition back to vendor life. As CSO he focused his efforts both internally and externally. He focused internally upon corporate strategy, product direction, and acquisitions. Externally, he drove their thought leadership initiatives and served as a "voice" of Hyperion for customers, analysts, and the market at large. As a result, he succeeded in making Hyperion the uncontested leader in performance management solutions.

Early in 2007 Hyperion was acquired by Oracle and, although they graciously offered Mr. Dresner a role, he chose to form Dresner Advisory Services, LLC--becoming an independent industry resource and strategy advisor.

Today as President and Founder of Dresner Advisory Services, LLC Howard Dresner focuses his energies on creating and sharing thought leadership for Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) and speaks at forums around the globe.

Mr. Dresner's first book, The Performance Management Revolution: Business Results Through Insight and Action (John Wiley & Sons) was published in November 2007. His second book, entitled Profiles in Performance: Business Intelligence Journeys and The Roadmap for Change, will be published in October 2009 by John Wiley & Sons.

Howard Dresner also works with a small number of handpicked organizations to help them optimize their performance--giving them a competitive advantage in their respective markets.
