I’ve been an Application Development Consultant since I joined Microsoft in March 2006. Over the 3+ years I’ve had a lot of fun on this team and particularly enjoyed the shear breadth of skills and knowledge required to tackle whatever the customer requires. My CV is now a recruiter’s dream with all the keywords I can check off.
You may have noticed from the posts to this blog over the last year or so that I’ve been spending more time specialising in both development process and our business intelligence products, Analysis Services and PerformancePoint Server. I’ve certainly been finding more and more interesting work in this area; enough to start looking for new challenges.
To that end I’m pleased to say that this week I have accepted a role with the Microsoft Business Solutions team as a Business Intelligence Consultant. The team roughly comprises of SharePoint, Dynamics, BI and other related functions such as architecture and test skills.
There are lots of challenges ahead – in particular I believe to be successful the “business” part of BI must come before the technology. Also I’m really looking forward to getting into data analysis, visualisation and seeing how customer businesses make use of the information I’ll be able to give them.
So watch this space…
