Senior Analytics Architect
Steven Van Damme holds a Master in Commercial Sciences from the European University College Brussels (HUB – EHSAL). During his studies he has also been on Erasmus exchange of one year in Finland. After his studies in Brussels, he successfully completed a Master in Finance from EADA (Spain).
In July 2014 he started working as a Business Analyst at Magnetrol International, manufacturer of level and flow instruments. He was responsible for providing insights to the management through reporting, analysis and financial projections (planning, budgeting and forecasting). He used SQL and Excel to gather and organize data, conduct analysis and prepare recurring and ad hoc reports. Based on extensive self-study in the Microsoft BI stack, he created an automated reporting solution using Power BI and DAX, for sales and accounting including scorecards and dashboards. Based on this experience, Steven decided that Business Analytics would become his professional future.
Steven today is focusing on PowerBI (including DAX), until the latest release, whilst broading this skillset to the rest of the SQL Server solution set (SSIS, SSAS, SSRS). Steven also masters the implementation and customisation of our Business Intelligence “Out-of-the-Box” solution for Microsoft Dynamics Navision / Business Central. Next to this, in line with the fast moving evolutions to the Cloud, Steven proved his knowledge by certifying as Azure Data Engineer Associate.
His knowledge in BI together with his background in finance allow him to serve management with the information they need to make strategic, operational and tactical decisions.
