Mark Hayes - Freelance Microsoft Data Platform Consultant.

A seasoned data professional with 20+ years of experience in SQL Server/Analysis Services and related technologies. Leader of the Cork SQL and Power Platform User Groups and the Cork SQL Saturday and a regular speaker at user groups in Ireland.

I love data and working with Microsoft Data Technologies. I have a focus on the benefits of good data modelling to deliver a solution to clients that meets their needs and can do much more for them in future. Data projects, while sometimes easy, are often complex and require a range of technologies and techniques to implement them. In my 20 years of working with the SQL Server platform, I have built up a wide range of experience across the Microsoft Data Platform and into Azure. 

I enjoy speaking and User Groups and conferences and trying to help others to get a better understanding of how they can use the platform to meet and exceed their own project needs. 


A review of how the Power Platform can be adopted by an organization to successfully meet their data needs. Based on real-world implementations with customers.
A few years ago I had a client with a data need and I built an IaaS solution. Now, it would have been an ideal fit for a PaaS approach using Azure DB, Stream Analytics and Power BI. This session demos and explains why.
