My name is Omar and I’m a data enthusiast

Hello, My name is Omar Vidaure and I’m a data enthusiast.

Recently I attended the MicroStrategy World 2019 Conference where there was a heavy focus on federated data. Federated data really means that regardless of Business Intelligence platform or report source the underlying data should be consistent across an organization. A single source of truth. It was also interesting to see that many of the attendees, regardless of their industry, seemed to be having some of the familiar growing pains of implementing a new platform.


I love data so this got me thinking. Too often there is a struggle to get acquainted with new products and platforms while juggling business requirements. With that in mind, I wanted to share some of my experience, tips, tricks, hacks, thoughts, and solutions.


A bit about myself. For over a decade I’ve worn many hats including; SQL developer, multi-platform Business Intelligence developer, department manager, mobile/applications developer, software implementation specialist, trainer, and everything in between.


For the better part of the last decade I’ve worked mainly with MicroStrategy as my primary Business Intelligence platform. I’ve also worked with Tableau, Business Objects, Crystal Reports, and some Power BI. In terms of database development I’ve worked mostly with MS SQL Server with a few touches of Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL. I also have some HTML, javascript, and scripting experience.


I've worked in and with various environments and niche market data. These have ranged from inventory management, procurement, sales, supply chain management, wine beverage and alcohol industry, CRM, Nielson scan data, protected health information and HIPAA compliance. At the time of writing this post, I am also ranked among the top expert in the MicroStrategy community


For all of those interested, feel free to connect on LinkedIn or send me any questions/feedback. I’m looking forward to putting together my next post.
