One of the reasons I started this blog in 2010 was not only to share what I know about QlikView, but also to expand my own knowledge and understanding of it. In my opinion, explaining concepts and solutions to others is a great way to identify areas of improvement for yourself.

Recently, I got a new colleague at my company; Wesley Smit. Wesley is a recent graduate of Business Economics and Organization Sciences from the VU University in the Netherlands. With this business-oriented background, Wesley has an excellent understanding of the what and why of Business Intelligence. Since joining Bitmetric as a Junior Business Intelligence Consultant, we’ve been bringing him up to speed on how to develop BI solutions. Of course, the main focus is on QlikView, but we’re also working on peripheral solutions, methods and techniques that will make him an all-round consultant.

Wesley has been making great progress and is ready for the next step, not just gaining knowledge but also sharing it. In the coming time he will be posting articles on some of the things he has discovered while learning QlikView.

I welcome Wesley as a co-author on this blog and hope that you will enjoy his articles!

About The Author

Barry Harmsen

Hi there, I'm Barry and I'm a Business Intelligence Consultant at Bitmetric and based in the Netherlands. Originally from a background of 'traditional' Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence and Performance Management, for the past few years I have been specializing in QlikView and a more user-centric form of BI. I have done numerous QlikView implementations in many different roles and industries. In 2012 I co-authored the book QlikView 11 for Developers. You can follow me on Twitter at @meneerharmsen.
