Successful training and consulting for, among others:
I followed Marnix Jansen's course on Power BI at an internal ABN AMRO training in order to obtain my Microsoft PL-300 certificate. It was a very positive experience, not only the theoretical parts but also the practical exercises.
Furthermore the practice questions for the exam were extremely useful and thanks to him I was able to obtain a 9,3 for the exam.
In addition, after the course finished, I reached out to him to ask him for his help regarding a Power BI coding problem that I was facing and he gracefully offered his help which proved to me once again how knowledgeable Marnix is on Power BI.
I would highly recommend everyone who works with Power BI to take his course!

Stichting BOOR provides public (special) primary education, secondary education and (secondary) special education in Rotterdam. A total of about 75 schools, where about 30,000 students are taught on a daily basis.
To ensure that we can make our decisions in a more informed way, Marnix helped with the introduction of Power BI within our organization. First he provided a number of training sessions and then he supported the development of our first dashboard.
He has shown himself to be a true expert by developing the entire "back end" of the dashboard with us: the connections to the data sources and the development of the data model. In doing so, he gave us the necessary advice for how we set up the process prior to Power BI. Furthermore, he showed us how to develop a dashboard that fits well with the needs of the users, can be operated in a user-friendly way and looks very professional.
Marnix is pleasant to work with and I highly recommend it!

After we got our data warehouse and data quality in order, Marnix helped us leverage them for interactive clear Power BI dashboards that help both users and management to work and make decisions in a data-driven way.
He also enthused and trained the users to be able to apply Self-service BI to the maximum on this basis.
He knows how to combine knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and humor very well, which allowed us to achieve a lot in a short time, seemingly effortlessly.

To provide our business with user-friendly reporting on our ERP system, Marnix created a link between our ERP system and Power BI and then developed a data model and interactive report. For another Power BI report, he combined Power Apps and Power BI so that users of the report not only receive information but can also provide data for the report. Marnix is pleasant to work with, has a thorough understanding of Power BI and can also be used by our Power BI users within the organization as a source of information.

To give the MT of Rotterdam Zoo monthly insight into how we are doing in relation to our goals, Marnix has developed a Power BI model which is very easy to create and easy for us to use. He has retrieved data from various systems and processed it in such a way that the information it provides makes it easier for us to manage Blijdorp.
