  • Gathering, understanding and documenting business requirements for BI and MI solutions.
  • Building a broad, collaborative relationship with end users to help them understand their data and bring context to it via Power BI based solutions.
  • Creation and maintenance of Power BI datasets where applicable to ensure consistent data use through reporting landscape, and to empower citizen developers to produce their own reports.
