About Me

 I’m a working professional, a business intelligence consultant, and a trainer.

Transforming Data into Insights with Power BI and SAP Expertise



I’m Santosh Pothnak, and I’ve made a name for myself as a business intelligence consultant and trainer. My adventure started in 2009 with SAP Business Objects Tools, which I still think is top-notch for business reports.

I’ve worked with big names like Accenture, Infosys, Seal Infotech, and SITACORP. Right now, I’m with Accenture, diving deep into Power BI for one of Microsoft’s major clients. Over 14+ years, I’ve played around with lots of tools like Crystal Reports, SAP BW, SAP HANA, and Power BI Desktop, to name a few.

Going to SAP TechEd events has been a career highlight, soaking in the atmosphere of the SAP community. I’ve also collected a bunch of Microsoft Certifications in Power BI, Azure, and even PYTHON programming.
