Meet our colleague Katrien Cloetens
What is your job at Datashift?
I am an enthusiastic BI consultant with a strong focus on Microsoft Azure cloud.
When and why did you join Datashift?
I have joined Datashift almost 3 years ago. At that moment I was working as a radio-engineer, but I was missing the connection with the business. That's why I was looking for a job where I would be able to combine business knowledge with technical skills. At my first interview I met Michel who immediately transferred his passion for data to me. And here we are 3 years later, still as enthusiast as I was on my first day at work!
What are you most proud of?
At the start of my journey at Datashift, I have focused on setting-up and migrating BI systems. In the beginning at on-premise environments, but the past year the shift to the cloud is noticeable. In the meantime I have designed and implemented multiple data models, built different data-architectures, set-up data lakes and the (MS Azure) cloud has no more secrets for me 😉! The most important aspect to be proud of is that each project was completed with a high level of quality where the business users are in the center.
What is the most valuable lesson you have learned from a colleague?
Don't hesitate to ask for help when needed. Communication is crucial in business and the importance of it is often underestimated.
There’s no failure, only feedback or mistakes are often the greatest teachers.
