Dustin WellsGet to know me!
From a young age, I was fascinated with how things work and how to optimize them. This drive lead me to study Mathematics and Computer Science (BS and MS, Missouri State University), where I learned creative problem solving and how to use the toolset in front of me to build the best solution possible. I am very technical, analytical, and solution-oriented. To me, a solution is not a good one if it doesn’t account for variable change.
QueBIT gives me a great opportunity to apply my approach while working with a very diverse client set. As Moore’s law continues to hold true and technology continues to advance the size and scope of what we can deliver, so too will the need to help our clients see the analytical big picture grow.
You could say I am have a lifelong passion for learning and understanding. It has lead me to accumulate knowledge as well as hands-on experience in many different Business Intelligence areas. My specialties are Data Warehousing and Cognos (Reporting and Data Modeling). Data is nothing without quality and understanding. I get the most satisfaction out of my job when I help a client better understand their business so that they can make it better.
