BI (MS STACK) Internal Technical Consultant
You will be leading and driving forwards the existing Business Intelligence Centre of Excellence. Delivering reporting analytics and solutions developed in house by utilising their existing MS BI Stack to a broad range of internal business units and functions who are spread across 30 countries, throughout the world.
This role would suit a senior BI developer who is ready for their next step or a leader who is looking to broaden their skill set and technology or you may already be delivering something similar – you will be working with senior stakeholders both internally and externally, you do have a small local team around you who require leadership and mentoring but this is not about local team management in the traditional form, it’s about leadership and being responsible for BI services to a wider ranging audience.
The role is also responsible for all MI/ BI Analytics and Reporting services (e.g. the design, implementation and support of BI software, systems and solutions, including integration with databases and data warehouses, and report writing). Operating in a Multi-platform / Technology Environment, with Microsoft SQL Server being the core MI / BI platform and technology stack.
Progression towards greater use of Cognos Business Intelligence is also underway, this starting from the TM1 application suite.
We would expect you to be technically hands on, with a consultative, almost internal technical pre sales approach, influencing stakeholders of the benefits in adopting BI / Analytics and Services from your centre of excellence.
You will need to build confidence and trust, rapport and relationships with stakeholders and you must be able to show that you’re technically aware and capable, for example we would expect you to have extensive experience in installing, configuring, administering, and troubleshooting MI/ BI applications – every day BAU issues still need to be resolved and a daily service still needs to be delivered.
