I was reading through the email from The Databse Weekly and I saw an article from Paul Randal with regards to Paul being your mentor. This really got me thinking and where is my future within Business Intelligence (BI).
I really love what I do. I get great satisfaction and enjoyment when I can tell people a story about their data. Or show them insights into their data for the first time.
I find it easy to grasp new concepts and get it all working. I work entirely within the Microsoft BI toolset.
With the new Office 365 and Power BI offerings there is a whole new world to get my head around. It really excites me.
I have also started working for a BI consulting company and it equally exciting times here. They are looking to expand and really get into the Microsoft BI space. That’s where I come into the picture.
I feel that I am at the right place at the right time. In terms of using my existing knowledge within the Microsoft space, as well as enabling the consultancy to grow from strength to strength going forward.
This is where I feel that the being mentored by Paul Randal could get me onto the next level, which is where I want to go and where I will eventually get to. Being mentored by someone as knowledgeable and experienced means I can get there a little quicker!
So where do I see myself in the future?
I see myself learning and going to that next level. Enabling businesses to gain insights to their data faster and quicker than ever. As well as driving the BI consultancy to become the go to consultancy for Microsoft BI.
