About me

I am the principal consultant for VidasSoft Systems Inc. corporation (Toronto, Canada) that specializes in building data warehouse solutions using Microsoft technologies (SQL Server, SSIS, Multidimensional and Tabular SSAS, PowerPivot). I worked with SQL Server since 1995 and started to use Analysis Services (now SSAS) as soon as it was released with SQL Server 7.0 (1998). For the past 14 years, I was working exclusively on building data warehouses.

I was Microsoft SQL MVP (Most Valuable Professional) from April 2008 until July 2018.

In 2012 I achieved SSAS Maestro certification – highest available certification level in Analysis Services field. In 2013 there was just one person in Canada with this certification (about 36 people in the world).

I have the following certifications:

  • MCITP -Business Intelligence Developer
  • MCTS – Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence Development
  • MCTS – SQL Server 2005
  • MCDBA – SQL Server 2000
  • MCSE NT 4.0, 2000
  • MCP

I created and maintain Analysis Services related website http://www.ssas-info.com.

I also created and maintain Portfolio Slicer/ PowerBI application that lets you track investments in Excel using PowerPivot: http://PortfolioSlicer.com.
