Community Video Profile: Kevin McGinley - OBIEE, Business Intelligence, and Advanced Analytics

Here's a tip of the ArchBeat hat to business intelligence expert Kevin McGinley for his recent confirmation as an Oracle ACE Director.

The video above was recorded at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (a few weeks before his ACED confirmation) when I had a chance to ask Kevin about recent projects and challenges, and about the business intelligence video series he produces with fellow BI whiz Steward Bryson. Kevin is a very sharp guy and I'm sure you'll enjoy this short interview.
