I am a Business Intelligence professional living in Perth, Western Australia. Ive been living and breathing Microsoft B.I. since SQL 2000 and am involved in every aspect of B.I. implementations. Of late i have had the privelege of being appointed as team lead – so i now also manage all aspects of a dynamic and talented group of people.
I also have some experience with other vendors’ products such as SAP/BusinessObjects. I have a strong focus on technology and keep abreast of the newest developments in the B.I. world. Further solidifying my existing experience in enterprise-level B.I., standards, management and methodology is one of my primary motivators. The more i learn about my field i find there is so much more to learn! I guess this is true for most things life 🙂
Over the years ive managed to obtain some invaluable information from a number blogs, some that ive subscribed to and others found through everyones friend – Googe. My occupation of this tiny corner of the Internet is an attempt to share my experiences in the hope that someone may find this useful.
Remember that there is often more than approach to solve a problem.. you just need to consider the applicability and potential trade-offs of various techniques in your specific project. Never under estimate the value of good estimation and risk management!
