Presentation Slides for Transitioning to a BI role

Thanks to everyone who attended my session “Transitioning to a BI role” at the PASS SQL Saturday Charlotte.  The abstract is below.  Another packed room with a number of people standing!

Here is the PowerPoint presentation: Transitioning to a BI role.

Transitioning to a BI role

Business Intelligence is an extremely hot career.  If you are a DBA or have another IT position, how can you transition to a BI role?  I will describe what exactly BI is, what encompasses the Microsoft BI stack, why it is so popular, and why a BI career pays so much. Then I will delve into the steps to take to become a BI expert and how I made the transition, going from a salaried DBA to a high-in-demand and high-income BI consultant.  If I can go from a complete unknown to building a personal brand that allowed me to present at the PASS Business Analytics conference in just two years, so can you!
