About the presenter, Jonathan Stewart

I am a data geek who is absolutely fascinated with business intelligence and data warehousing and just generally loves data. I enjoy building data warehouses and designing and building ETL systems, providing clients analytical capabilities using Microsoft’s Business Intelligence Semantic Model (BISM) with SSAS OLAP and Tabular models with Power Pivot, as well as providing my clients valuable reporting options using SSRS.

I am also well versed in the administration side of databases such as performance tuning and disaster recovery using multiple technologies from clustering to availability groups with servers in disparate locations.

I have generally focused on the healthcare, finance and insurance industries but have experience in manufacturing as well.

My other interests include teaching, speaking and mentoring. I enjoy teaching clients how to get the most out of their investments as well as how to grow data professionals from their own backyard as opposed to hiring out.
