As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at email@example.com and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
Yes, it's true - our beloved Noreen Redden (as if I even needed to mention her last name) will be retiring from Information Builders this week. I know that she has met and worked with many of you through Summit and User Forums (where her name on the agenda always meant a good turnout). She's also shared her knowledge on this forum on multiple occasions.
I, personally, want to thank Noreen for her assistance and mentoring throughout the years I've known her.
Please feel free to leave Noreen a message, and if you have a good Noreen story, please leave that as well.
Bon Voyage Noreen! We'll miss you! Please stop in once in a while and say 'hi'!
With sincerest regards,
KathrynThis message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,
Noreen, bella, where are you going? Thank you for everything that you gave us to make our work with WF so rewarding. Especially "McGuyver"!!! If you come to our part of the world, please look us up. Best regards, Danny

Dear Noreen, You will be missed! I and my fellow FOCUS coders at Wheaton College (MA) always looked forward to your presentations at FUN. When I can't figure out how to do something in WebFOCUS, if I can't find easily locate the answer in the manuals or on the IBI website, I always go back through my printouts of your powerpoint presentations. It's amazing how often the answer I am looking for is right there.
You are most deserving of an honorary title ... FocWizard Emerita.
Noreen, wishing you all the best of what you wish for your retirement. Between Summits, FUSE/FUN and NYC gatherings, I humbly thank you for your oodles of contributions to my own successes. Believe it, your expertise and humor will be fondly missed and recalled by more people than you could imagine. #TheWizardOfIBI
