Narayana (pronounced “Na-ryan-a”) has a broad analytical background with 7+ years of experience in analyst roles requiring both business acumen and IT know-how. After experiencing first-hand how communication costs can cripple turnaround time in projects, he forayed into self-service BI by learning SQL and deploying SharePoint-based Excel dashboards. Skipping the traditional IT middle man, he became the reporting expert as Business Intelligence manager at FoodChain ID, a leader in food certification. More recently he has dived into the world of DAX, PowerPivot and Power BI and enjoys the “problem-solving thrill” that comes from implementing fully automated dashboards.
Narayana has a high standard of excellence, brings a positive attitude to the task at hand, and is deeply curious to understand how things work. He holds an MBA and is a Certified Microsoft Excel Expert.
