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.
