    OEM Partners - Let's Get This Party Started!

    Dan Haug

      Are you ready?  The OEM Partners user group is about to take off!!  Leading the charge will be two brave, but very accomplished individuals:


      Jeff James – Cerner

      Jeff (a former mechanic, geneticist, Weapon Systems Officer, and agile coach) has worked for Cerner Corporation for 16 years and is currently a Senior Software Architect.  Cerner is based in Kansas City and provides Healthcare IT solutions to over 20,000 facilities worldwide.  Jeff manages a team of engineers that embed Tableau into the company’s cloud-based Population Health platform called HealtheIntent.  Jeff’s team manages a production Tableau Server farm of 88 Cores and 400+ Tableau Desktops.  Jeff’s other Tableau activities include: delivering intermediate and advanced training to Cerner developers several times a month; presenting at TC15; presenting multiple sessions at Cerner’s DevCon and DataCon conferences; managing the company’s internal Tableau blog; and working with Tableau’s product management to add new features such as multi-site SAML.  Jeff is a regular attendee of the Kansas City TUG.


      Bob Basaraba – SEDC

      Bob has worked for Southeastern Data Cooperative (SEDC) for 15 years and is currently the Director of Product Strategy.  SEDC is based in Atlanta and provides software and services to approximately 500 electric distribution utilities in 43 states. Bob manages a team of engineers that embed Tableau into the company’s on-premise suite of products, including SEDC’s flagship utility software program, utilityPOWERnet (UPN).  Bob’s hobbies include spending time with his wife and two Labrador Retrievers (Huckleberry & Sundae), scuba diving, sampling the finest red wines, and analyzing anything possible with Tableau. Bob is a regular attendee of the Atlanta TUG.


      To get the party started, they will soon announce dates/times for the first OEM Partners virtual user group meeting, as well as a meetup and user group meeting at TC16 in Austin!


      Gentlemen... the dance floor is all yours!!
