What #ThisisSolver Means, a Spotlight on the Solver Culture

This article takes a closer look at the company culture at Solver.

solverawardsIn this article, I’ll be covering Solver’s culture, both internally and externally – and how that has changed the way I view work and my work ethic. In America, we work an average of 40-47 hours per week. According to Investopedia, “corporate culture refers to the beliefs and behaviors that determine how a company’s employees and management interact and handle outside business transactions.” Corporate culture has arguably always been important, but it’s only become so popular, almost a “buzzword” in the past decade, maybe because of the start-up phenomenon. Culture is often a prime factor in long-term organizational success. Also, a culture’s success depends on an organization’s business market, strategies and workforce.

Focus 2017: Another Record-Breaker in the Books

award winnerThis article will recap all of the details from Focus 2017, the 5th annual user conference for BI360 customers and partners.

And just like that, Focus 2017 has come and gone. For the planning committee at Solver, charged with the planning and execution of the 5th annual user conference for the community of BI360 customers and partners, it is bittersweet. To me, the best conferences can seem like summer camp for adult professionals, as you step out of your routine and your life to take up residence at a specific locale that is an all-inclusive on learning new skill sets, making new connections, and having fun. And Focus never disappoints in the context of this analogy. This is the fourth year I have attended the event, and it was such a joy to see familiar faces and share memories from past years with new faces at the ample networking opportunities. This blog entry will recap the highlights from this year’s Focus event.

Cloud Budgeting for Acumatica

This article will discuss the options you have to achieve modern, rich budgeting in the cloud with Acumatica.

The leading cloud ERPs, like Acumatica and recently acquired Intacct, were ahead of the curve with their platforms – and we’re seeing the rest of the enterprise technologies race to join them in the new normal of cloud solutions. As you hit your stride in Q3, some of us in a new fiscal year, while others are starting the budgeting process for 2018, planning might be a central focus for you and your team. However, Acumatica cloud customers have not had many choices of true cloud budgeting tools in the past, where Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics have been mostly alone in the mid-market. The challenge has been limited integrations to Acumatica at a high cost. Now, new cloud solutions like BI360 Cloud are coming to the marketplace, both with better Acumatica integrations than the older cloud tools, more flexible budget form designers and a price level more suitable for the mid-market. This article will explore what to look for in a modern cloud budgeting solution for Acumatica users.

Focus 2017: A BI360 Family Reunion

This article will detail what BI360 customers and partners can expect from the 5th edition of Focus, the annual user conference Solver puts on in Southern California.

When I first attended Focus in 2014, I was relatively new to the corporate performance management (CPM) space. I was starting to understand the ins and outs of financial and operational reporting, budgeting, forecasting, and modeling, data visualizations like dashboards of graphs, charts, and scorecards, and data warehousing as solutions to organizational performance management. But everything became three-dimensional to me at Focus. A community of hard-working and fun-loving BI360 users came together to share and compare best practices, learn about the power of the product, and network with new and established connections alike. Frankly, it was really sweet – and felt more like the most productive and educational family reunion rather than a formal conference. This article will explore what unfolds at this annual event – and why it’s as successful as it is, but also what to expect from the 2017 edition.
