The Coeo Blog

Andy Jones

I am a principal consultant at Microsoft Gold Partner Coeo. My passion is helping customers profit from their data using the Azure cloud platform, SQL Server and Power BI. Since 2001 I have been a Consultant, SQL Server DBA, Developer and Business Intelligence professional and am a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert: Data Management and Analytics and hold the Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science. Presenting at data community events and blogging about data and analytics are also activities I much enjoy. My home is North Wales, where I live with my wife and three children. In addition to family and data, my passion is marathon running.
