The change will happen anyway, it will find its way regardless of wheater we want it or not. If only we would not obstruct the change, we would be far more competitive in the market. The organizations and people who dare to join the change, will be successful for sure. The others can be successful as well, even if they are not driving the change by themselves.

A very common question when I’m out to help businesses are, “can we combine multiple data sources in a simple way?” Maybe combined structured information from data warehouse with data from Excel or REST API. Many vendors have solutions for this but it also requires programming/SQL skills or scripting. With Power BI from Microsoft you can manage this without scripting in a user friendly interface.Read More »
