What we're about

Meet other local Business Intelligence (BI) fans and experts to discuss the Microsoft BI Platform (mostly SQL Server and Power BI, but also SharePoint and Office). Our attendance is often between 50 and 75 professionals.
This user group encourages networking.
Work: If you are looking for Microsoft BI work (employee or contract) or have offers for Microsoft BI work (from hiring managers to recruiters), we welcome your attendance and offer you the chance to describe your situation during the meeting.
Technical Help: If you have a difficult or easier technical question about business intelligence, please bring that question to the meeting -- our speakers and audience have many experts.
Sponsors: We are always looking for meeting sponsors, who provide food and drink in exchange for time to present what their company does: we have had consulting firms, technology creators, and recruiters among our recurring past sponsors.

Overview: Business Performance Management (BPM) is a methodology to help the company predict its performance. An integral part of a BPM strategy is a process for Budgeting, Planning, and Forecasting which is typically performed by the Finance department. When it comes to Finance, nothing is simple, and budgeting is no exception. The temptation is to buy expensive prepackaged software but even that route would require a lot of customization and compromises.

Join this session to learn how to implement your own home-grown solution using Microsoft Analysis Services and Excel. I’ll share lessons learned from a real-life project.

Speaker: Teo Lachev is a consultant, author, and mentor, with a focus on Microsoft BI. Through his Atlanta-based company Prologika he designs and implements innovative solutions that bring tremendous value to his clients.
