Ten Things You Can Do With Data

Rob Collie 

Abstract: In the world of data, we spend much of our time talking about software, and for good reason: the modern wave of tools is dramatically superior to the tools of even five years ago. But there’s a related question that bears revisiting: WHAT should we be doing with those tools? While that may seem like an obvious question, the very existence of the revolutionary new tools makes now a great time to revisit the fundamentals of how we view our relationship with data. 

Spoiler alert: many of the obvious valuable things were prohibitively difficult to execute using previous tools – so much so that we’ve forgotten what we should be doing! The speaker (Rob Collie) has seen it all in the process of helping literally hundreds of organizations revolutionize their relationships with data, and in this thought-provoking and non-technical talk, he will share 10 recurring and valuable patterns observed within the past 2-3 years.


Bio: Rob Collie is leading a revolution into a new era of business intelligence (BI). He is the founder of PowerPivotPro, the world’s first fully agile BI consulting firm that meets companies where they are with data, and empowers them to make more of it in a way that spurs smarter business decisions, in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional firms. An engineering leader in BI and analytics during his 14-year career at Microsoft, Collie knows how to put data to work to give companies a competitive advantage, and is a firm believer in showing leaders how to create solutions that can be replicated long after the partnership ends, instead of creating co-dependent relationships.
Collie’s driving passion is to banish the dysfunctional, plodding methodologies of the traditional BI industry, and to replace them with the business-empowered, immediate-impact tactics made possible by the recent breakthroughs in software, like Power BI.  He is the author of three books, including the world’s No. 1-selling Power BI book, has penned over 600 articles and whitepapers, and also occasionally sleeps.
