With a 26-year career as an Excel consultant, trainer, and author, I’ve ample experience in helping organizations get the most out of their data. Being the face of Microsoft’s launch campaign for Power Pivot for Excel in the Netherlands, I was one of the first to work with the technology now known as Power BI. I’ve been awarded the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award for five years because of my work on Power BI. I’m founder and chairman of the Dutch Power BI User Group and a regular speaker at many Power BI and Excel-related conferences around the world.
The approach for professional use of Excel that I developed, the ‘Vlootman method’, has evolved into the Five-Layer Model for business intelligence, a framework to establish a data-driven culture that enables all people in an organization to work from the insights they need. I’m founder and CEO at Quanto, the Collective Analytics company.
My expertise in Power BI and Excel comprises data modeling and data transformation, the DAX and M languages, data visualization and design of Power BI solution architectures. I work with SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular, Azure Analysis Services, and related technologies as well.
Approach me for Power BI training, coaching, proof-of-concepts, and development of complete
solutions based on Power BI.
