Sander Robijns

I am working in the Information Technology industry since 1995 and started specializing on data warehousing and business intelligence since 1997.
I am in favor of a pragmatic and no-nonsense approach in finding the right solution, in order to maximize my added value to the organization, without sacrificing quality.
I keep up with the latest developments in the industry, but don’t jump right into the latest hype. A lot of my clients prefer solutions based on technology that have at least some sort of maturity level.
I have been working in all kinds of organizations with a lot of different people, both regarding the roles they fulfill and their nationality. Even though the industry has a large focus on technology, I mostly fulfill roles that need a lot of interaction with people.

Specialities: Data Modelling, DWBI Architecture, Data Vault Modelling, Education, Motivator, Coach.
