Quick tip:  if you live in the New York City area, I highly recommend looking into this session on May 12th:

It features Bill Baker and Andrew Brust.  I worked with Bill Baker at Microsoft while he ran the Business Intelligence arm of SQL.  Very colorful guy with an illustrious history and a reputation for not pulling punches.

I’ve never met Andrew personally but he was one of the first people I “met” on Twitter, and I quickly came to respect his judgment and observations.  In fact he’s been on my blogroll (in the right sidebar) virtually since the day I launched this blog.

PowerPivot is not explicitly mentioned in the agenda, but I have word that it figures heavily in the discussion.  (I suspect that an explicit mention would make people fear a marketing talk, but neither of these guys is an MS employee so that wouldn’t be warranted really).

Rob Collie

One of the original engineering leaders behind Power BI and Power Pivot during his 14-year career at Microsoft, Rob Collie founded a consulting company in 2013 that is 100% devoted to “the new way forward” made possible by Power BI and its related technologies.
