My BI journey started in 2000 as a consultant and instructor, implementing SQL Server based solutions and training our customers and partners in using our product. The often challenging mix of business related and technical work quickly made me feel that I had found my professional place in the world working in BI.
In 2002, we conceived Business Intelligence Accelerator, a fast integration tool for the Microsoft Dynamics portfolio. From my experience in implementing solutions, I figured that even though every customer is unique, all implementations share common features. This was why the idea of standardized Business Intelligence originally grew within me, and why BI Accelerator came about. In 2003, I transitioned to Program Manager and head of development for the Accelerator product.
Today, I am proud to still be responsible for an outstanding, user-friendly standard Business Intelligence tool for the Microsoft Dynamics portfolio as well as for Google Analytics and a few other products. We are continuously working on even more standardized solutions and improving the ones we already have. I still love “facetime” with the occasional customer and doing presentations and videos, evangelizing the advantages of Accelerator at conferences and customer events worldwide – or in this blog or wherever else you cross my path.
