Adam Aspin is an independent business intelligence consultant based in the United Kingdom. He has worked with SQL Server for seventeen years. During this time, he has developed several dozen reporting and analytical systems based on the Microsoft BI product suite.
A graduate of Oxford University, Adam began his career in publishing before moving into IT. Databases soon became a passion, and his experience in this arena ranges from dBase to Oracle to Microsoft Access to MySQL, with occasional sorties into the world of DB2. He is, however, most at home in the Microsoft universe using SQL Server Analysis Services, SQL Server Reporting Services, and SQL Server Integration Services.
Business Intelligence has been Adam's principal focus for the last ten years. He has applied his skills for a range of clients, including J.P. Morgan, The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Tesco, Centrica, Harrods, Vodafone, Credit Agricole, Cartier, Alfred Dunhill, The RAC, Willis Insurance, Signet, and EMC Conchango.
