With his engagement at Brandes Investment Partners, after performing a technical kush-dhakal-mugshotassessment of our installed BI environment, Daniel delivered two valuable innovations: First, he led us through the emerging Data Vault method for incremental enterprise data warehouse design. At the same time, he introduced and again led agile model-storming sessions to quickly turn fuzzy requirements into solid, yet widely understood, logical dimensional data models. In our production environment, which includes 40+ Analysis Services cubes, these delivery methods are now allowing us to design solid solution increments more quickly. Along the way, Daniel also provided solid Analysis Services development training to our Data Management and BI team members. He is definitely fun to work with and enjoys impromptu discussions on BI-DW best practice. I welcome the chance to work with Daniel again and recommend him to teams wanting to progress towards the truly agile delivery of solid, no-compromise business intelligence.
