I am Nagasatya Devarakonda working as a BI Architect from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) for Liquor Stores of North America, the largest liquor retailer in North America with stores in Alberta, BC, Alaska and CT. With over 13 years of experience in IT and multiple ERP platforms (SAP, Oracle, D365), I am still learning so much in the new and emerging world of the BI and Analytics space. I am familiar with BusinessObjects, Lumira, Tableau and now Power BI. I am currently working with our executive team on setting up a BI COE with the goal of self service analytics in the organization and use IT as just providers of data rather than report creators.
In addition to the Data Insights summit last year, Sam, your tutorials on YouTube and the workshops have helped me sell the idea of PowerBI and self serve analytics to our execs. I am determined to make this implementation a great success and really kick start the data driven culture in the org.
As others have mentioned, really excited to be part of the forum and keep on learning new things regarding the analytics journey.
