Happy, that's the feeling Budi Setiawan expressed when this year he became one of the awards and achievement recipients from ED-SEN Consulting. There is a sense of pride in Budi for receiving an award as Best Consultant in Business Analytics from the company in his first year joining ED-SEN Consulting. Budi Setiawan is part of the ED-SEN Consulting project team working on the Power Business Intelligence (BI) project. Budi is currently working on 2 Power BI projects in two different companies, namely GO-JEK and Danone.
Working on two projects was a challenge for Budi. He must divide his time so that the two projects he is working on can run simultaneously. Budi said, if there is a deadline in one of the projects, he will focus on one project first. Later, when I have finished one project, I will work on another project.
As a consultant, Budi wants to deepen his skills regarding Power BI. There are many things you want to learn about Power BI, from data analytics to machine learning. "I want to learn more about data analytics, data scientists, and machine learning. Let my insight into Business Intelligence be broader, "said Budi.
Budi said, lately many companies have implemented Business Intelligence as a system in their corporate business. for that he is eager to deepen his ability to better understand Business Intelligence, especially in terms of analytics.
This year, Budi also plans to take a certification from Microsoft as a requirement to become a Microsoft partner. "One of the requirements to pass the certification is to be able to be Microsoft Azure. I really want to be able to master Microsoft Azure so that it can be implemented in my work. " Said Budi.
Talking about the world of IT, Budi said that he has been interested in the world of IT since high school. At that time, Budi had started to learn about multimedia by using several existing software. From this interest, when he was in college Budi majored in Informatics Engineering at the Indraprasta PGRI University Jakarta. Budi said that in the beginning, he experienced difficulties when he was in college because there were several things he had just learned, such as system logic and complex mathematics.
Prior to joining ED-SEN Consulting, Budi had worked in an IT company in the support and development division. In this company, Budi is accustomed to using Oracle in carrying out his work. However, after joining ED-SEN Consulting Budi got a new challenge working on the Business Intelligence project. "Initially I applied for the position of Oracle Developer, but at ED-SEN Consulting I was trusted to work on the Business Intelligence project, and this was a new challenge for me." Said Budi.
Budi said that at the beginning of working on the Power BI project, he adjusted, especially in the use of tools for development. According to Budi, the tools in Power BI and Oracle are different even though logically the programs are the same. "At first, I learned about Power BI from Mr. Erwin, even at the beginning of my entry I was trained for 3 weeks with Mr. Erwin before finally being trusted to work on the Power BI project," said Budi.
Apart from training, Budi also tried to learn about Power BI by himself until he finally started to understand and get used to Power BI. "When I first worked on the Business Intelligence project, I found many complicated cases and it was quite difficult," said Budi.
Budi also admitted that he had a lot of discussions with Mr. Erman as the Project Manager who was responsible for the project he was working on. For complicated cases, Budi usually holds discussions with Mr. Erman and the team to find solutions to the cases we face.
Budi said that he wanted to give his best for the first Power BI project in GO-JEK that he was working on. There was a certain satisfaction and pride for Budi when I was from scratch and didn't understand Power BI until I finally saw that the Power BI dashboard could be used in a company as big as GO-JEK.
In the future, Budi is also eager to increase his insight and knowledge by studying Anaplan and Oracle NetSuite. Budi said that if later he was asked for help to work on the Anaplan or Oracle NetSuite project, he was ready to work on it.
Budi also has hopes for ED-SEN Consulting so that the company can grow even more and have more clients with more diverse projects.
