I am a physician in a practice with 2 partners near retirement. I will be offered the chance to buy the practice in the near future which I would rather not do. The rub is I have a no compete clause. Would like my partners to sell to one of the hospital in town but don't know if they will. Thoughts?  businessintelligence

Multi page is fine, as long as that multi is equal to or less than 2. Any more than 2 pages and nobody is reading that.

It should absolutely 1000000% include examples of interest things you've done, and those things should be tweaked in every CV for the job you're applying for. These experiences should just act as prompts for questions, you're not writing an essay, but you should be able to talk about each and every one if needed.

In accompaniment to the CV should be a 1 page cover letter, which explains exactly why your CV and experience is suitable for that job.

Send Users the Result of a Query  businessintelligence

Latest Comment

I use a mix of MS Report Builder, Excel PowerPivot, or Excel Power Query for this type of more simplistic report. My personal favorite of the 3 is PowerPivot since it allows the user to filter through slicers and I can apply DAX measures for more complex KPIs. SSRS does allow you to set up email and mobile subscriptions that will provide the user with daily, weekly, or monthly CSV extracts of their requested report.

Try the material posted on https://www.sqlbi.com. The authors have also published some very useful books on tabular and dax (the query language used for tabular). If you want a good understanding I'd recommend 'tabular modeling in microsoft sql server analysis services 2nd edition' and 'the definitive guide to dax' . I found them both extremely useful when switching from multidimensional to tabular as both an introduction and a reference for more advanced topics.

I found that MS courses didn't help me at all in gaining employment, in fact they were the biggest waste of time I've ever done. I'm a senior BI consultant that has got here simply by keeping up with the play on the latest tech, currently the demand is in Data Science and Machine Learning.. I'm not even sure MS offers such a course.

How to best use sales datasets, and what app/ who do I look for to help?  businessintelligence

3 years ago | 2 comments | self.BusinessIntelligence | Score: 7 Reddit

Latest Comment

Do you or anyone in your team have experience or know how to use SQL/ORACLE? If yes, that's one way to go, or at least the start for something. There's BI applications that can solve your issue like Tableau, PowerBI, MiscroStrategy, etc. Those are softwares that (mostly) works through database queries, gets the information and makes available by almost any way you can imagine. From columns x rows to display through graphic charts just like excel.

But I think that is impossible to someone explaing exact how to do by a reddit post. I highly recommend you to hire or advise to hire some especialist/consultant in BI/data analyst or contract an outsourcered.

Insights from Prescription Data  businessintelligence

3 years ago | 8 comments | self.BusinessIntelligence | Score: 3 Reddit

Latest Comment

Generally, BI solves business problems and/or contributes to business objectives (ie. "Where is our marketing most effective? How should we deploy our marketing dollars most effectively?") rather than "we have a big pile of data, let's ask random people on Reddit what we should do with it. Maybe they will come up with something."

If I were a drug company's marketing CMO, maybe i would want to compare and identify specific doctors who aren't prescribing our drug compared to other doctors with the same kind of practice and then focus our sales and marketing on those under prescribing doctors. Maybe I want to find the doctors who prescribe the most and find out why they like our drugs and then use that insight for marketing to the doctors who prescribe less. But what the hell do I know!

Do you gather and visualize data or do you Analyze it too?  businessintelligence

Latest Comment

I am in a large corporation, if you are tasked with gathering/providing data, it is really only up to you to write a quick note about the data when sending it to the requestor.

You will soon learn more about the business and people will start coming to you with questions, rather than data requests. You will be able to spot anomalies/trends better as you will have access to much more data than the requestor (cross BU, cross product etc).

It used to be my bread and butter...as mentioned above, it is an IBM product: - resources are old school (i.e. large, heavy papers) - its a very expensive tool, so you wont have a young kid playing around with it, making videos to put up on youtube - dsxchange.com was the only source I would consult when facing an issue. If you were a complete n00b, some people would give you a hard time on there

IBM DataStage resources: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27041358

You will find other DataStage Redbooks from IBM as well.

I would advise you to download Talend and play around with it so that you at least understand the flow of creating an ETL job. Talend and DS are quite similar in the design flow, and Talend is free.
