    Millions of dollars are wasted every year on Business Intelligence implementations that fail to provide a clear strategic architecture to presenting corporate information for end user consumption. If the data is organized in a concise, consistent manner, and performs well, the project will be well received and accepted around the organization. In order to achieve this, a solid understanding of the IBM Cognos Framework Manager tool is necessary. Based on a proven training curriculum, the Ironside Group will provide instructor-led classes that highlight the important steps to be considered during the design and implementation process of a Framework model.

    Philadelphia, PA 19123
    Why? is an indie pop/abstract hip-hop project, originally based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, that was formed in 2003 by front-man Yoni Wolf. Though he has been making music under the moniker Why? since 1997, Wolf enlisted his brother Josiah and friends Dough McDiarmid and Matt Meldon to form a band and lent the project his chosen name. With a very recognizable sound blending experimental electronica, hip-hop, spoken poetry and folk rock, Why? has steadily increased its collection of fans since the 2005 release of its breakout album, Elephant Eyelash. The band released its fifth studio album, Mumps, Etc., in 2012.
