Two Hours To Change Your Business (Or Job. Or Life.)

Two Hours to Change Your Business (Or Job. Or Life.)

Two Hours. Data Superpowers.  Victory.  Not Kidding. A New Way.  Tearing Down Old Paradigms. Folks, today I want to share a source of personal pride – literally share it, and make sure YOU experience it.  I saw something, back in 2010, that changed my career (and life) forever:  I saw the Power Pivot v1 product in action, as I re-implemented a project that I’d paid $50k for originally in 2005, using a traditional BI methodology.  In 2010 I re-built it,…

A Few *IDEAL* Power Pivot Job Openings

Everyone run for the hills, Rob found a Fight Club font.  No image is safe from here on out.Last night I was talking to my friend Neelesh Raheja.  We were overdue for a “touch base/compare notes” session, so when the phone rang and I saw his number, I knew it was “on.”

First – Who is Neelesh? 

Neelesh works for GNet Group and is a hardcore BI pro.  I mean, he has all the pedigrees.  Name an acronym and he speaks it fluently.  SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, ETL, EDW, PPS, ECS, EWA, EPM, MDM – the list goes on.  So if Traditional BI were a martial art, Neelesh would be a black belt.

But Neelesh is Different.  Like Tyler Durden, he has the ability of letting That Which Does Not Matter, Truly Slide.  In other words, he doesn’t care where we’ve Been.  He cares about where we’re Going.  He doesn’t view Power Pivot as “just another technology.”  He understands it as a total paradigm shift, a fundamental change in the way everything can and should be done.

Tellingly, I can’t provoke Neelesh like I sometimes do with the larger BI community.  If I say something inflammatory like “Data Warehousing is widespread dysfunction,” Neelesh smiles and says “yeah Rob we know.”  At which point I sit back in my chair and say “go ON…”

So all the “revolutionary” stuff I’ve been preaching for a few years now?  GNet is already DOING that stuff at big clients.  In fact I think they are even less “apologetic” about it than I am.  He’s seen the same future I’ve seen, but he’s bringing it to Big Corporate America every day, top-down through IT, whereas my “vector” is bottom-up, through the Excel Pro.

GNet Needs a Power. Pivot. Platoon.

PowerPivot Jobs

 This is the sort of thing I am seeing with increasing frequency these days:  jobs specifically created around a PowerPivot state of mind Longtime reader David Napoli has convinced his organization that it’s time to invest in PowerPivot, and that means hiring some talent.
