I'm the founder of NextWave BI.

At NextWave, help companies build and bring to market data products using embedded analytics.  I use my experience as a product owner and working at analytics firms to help businesses develop engaging analytic products that drive revenue and customer engagement.

Prior to NextWave, I held positions leading embedded analytics teams, designing SaaS products and performance management strategies, and managing product management for companies such as Birst, ServiceSource, SAP Labs, and Qwest Communications.

I was a "Six Sigma Black Belt," (I'm better now) and led corporate process management and improvement initiatives at Qwest/LCI International and MCI, and served at Booz·Allen Hamilton as a consultant in their Process Improvement practice. 

I hold a B.S. in Finance, as well as an M.B.A. in Quality/Process Management, both from the University of Maryland, College Park.

You can me on Twitter @KevinMSmith or on LinkedIn as KevinMichaelSmith.  You probably can't find me via the Google where the first 50 or so pages result in either movie directors or NFL players.
