Let’s get started

Just back from PASS Summit 2014 and I am feeling inspired about stepping it up a notch and starting to give back to the great community that has provided me with the knowledge to build my career over the years. Hopefully, I’ll be able to help a frustrated person out there somewhere with a tidbit or two from some of the solutions I’ve created.

I’m primarily a business intelligence practitioner, which means I’m really all over the stack. You can expect to see posts here about cloud services (mostly Azure because I currently get free MSDN credits), Data Architecture / Modeling, Data Visualization (all the new stuff), SSIS / SSAS / SSRS (the old stuff), DAX & BISM (my new personal favorite), and whatever else comes out next week that makes this post sound old already.

I’m working on some interesting projects right now that I hope to have published patterns for in the near future (comparable sales logic in DAX and creating and maintaining a standard report template in SSRS). In the meantime, I thought I’d start like a real pro, and post some of the stuff I’ve done in the past again…

Monitoring scheduled report executions in SSRS using SSRS

Implementing SSO with per-user identity using Claims, SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence Services, and Windows 2012 Server Web Application Proxy

As I mentioned before, really, all over the stack…
