Jan Mulkens is a Microsoft Data Platform & Business Intelligence Consultant at Ordina Belgium. In his spare time, he is a co-founder of the Global Power BI virtual user group and speaker at conferences and local SQL Server user groups.
Through guest lectures at local colleges, Jan tries to make students as enthusiastic as himself about data.
While his interests are broad, he has a passion for creating data warehousing and business intelligence solutions that help the business get insight in, and take action on, their data.
With data science becoming more and more popular, Jan’s been looking into making those insights available to the business in an easy and intuitive way without the need for the deep and broad knowledge that a data scientist generally has.
His main experience lies with SQL Server and the rest of the Microsoft on-premises BI Stack (Excel, SharePoint, Integration Services, Reporting Services and Analysis Services).
Using Azure mostly as an extension to the on-premises BI stack, he has been using Power BI and different parts that make up the Cortana Intelligence Suite for over a year now.
