LOS ANGELES, CA, March 15, 2016 – Solver, the global leader in Business Intelligence for mid-market ERP systems and producers of BI360 Focus, an annual user and partner conference on leadership and business intelligence technology, announced the location and the keynote speaker for this year’s event.  Yvonne Camus, one of North America’s most trusted speakers on teamwork and performance, will deliver the keynote on Thursday, August 25th at Focus 2016, held this year at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines resort.

Yvonne Camus, a successful team member in Discovery Channel’s “Eco Challenge” adventure race, will share with Focus 2016 attendees her conviction that ordinary people, like herself, can achieve extraordinary things—if they know the true ingredients of success: teamwork, commitment, and enthusiasm for life.  Her rookie team of amateur athletes used communication skills, respect for one another, and practical savvy to become the first inexperienced team to complete the grueling competition—surprising challenge-designer, Mark Burnett of Survivor fame. With amazing visuals and lots of funny, insightful stories, Camus will help BI360 customers and partners see the potential for greatness in themselves, in their co-workers, and in their organization.

In addition to discussions on teamwork and leadership, BI360 Focus 2016, held August 22 – 25, 2016 at the Hilton in La Jolla, CA, right outside of San Diego, CA and on the world famous Torrey Pines golf course, will focus on business intelligence technology and data management trends and best practices, as applied via the BI360 suite of applications. The event draws several hundred technology implementation partners and application users from across the United States and around the world to share ideas and learn from one another on how to maximize their BI360 investment.

“This will be the fourth annual Focus conference, and we couldn’t be more excited to have customers and partners from the US and around the world join us,” says Nils Rasmussen, CEO of Solver. “We have a lot of new and exciting content this year, including expert advice from consultants and customers sharing their stories. All which should make Focus a great investment for attendees.”

This year, Solver has added two days of both intensive, hands-on beginner and advanced technical product training workshops as a response to conference attendee requests from last year.  August 23rd is designed solely for implementation partners, featuring a hands-on training lab along with sessions on product and service sales and marketing, as well as a BI360 Partner Panel to discuss building a BI practice. The remaining two days will be dedicated to the application user—presenting tips and techniques that leverage all of the functions available with BI360. These functions are presented in 60-plus breakout sessions across five categories, including sponsored sessions that will present how Independent Software Vendor (ISV) applications can be used with BI360. Several networking opportunities, as well as a small sponsor exhibit area, a BI360 demo room, and customer showcase presentations, are also included as part of the event.

Registration for BI360 Focus 2016 is now open featuring Partner and Attendee training and/or conference rates, as well as early bird and volume discounts. Special room rates are also available via the host hotel, Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines. For more details on attending or to sponsor an ISV session, please contact Matt Felzke at
