About Me

Note: I have not updated this blog in a while, so if you find something helpful here, let's call it good luck.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog!

My name is Rafael Salas and I have been working with information technologies and Business Intelligence for more many years.

I have experience with a wide range of  data warehousing and database technologies. I enjoy presenting at local and national technical conferences, co-authored SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Vol. 2 and  have had the privileged of being recognized as Microsoft SQL Server Most Valuable Professional since 2007. My team was awarded The Data Warehouse Institute best practices award in 2009. I spend a lot of time closing communication gaps between technologists, project managers and the business, working on technical architectures, data integration, data modeling and BI.

I am also the co-founder of Charlotte BI Group and help organizing Charlotte SQL Saturdays.
