The Senior Business Consultant must understand variety of existing data visualization dashboards that are created in SAS Visual Analytics; analyze their data sources and how data is brought together to meet business requirements; and convert these reports to PowerBI platform maintaining the data integrity and business functionality.

  • Review new requirements and make necessary changes to dashboards and reports as needed, in the PowerBI environment.
  • Create or modify technical documentation for the final solution.



The Senior Business Consultant works on applications that serve teachers and school districts, gather student and school data, manage funding, and provide compliance oversight (such as the Texas Student Data System, Foundation School Funding, and Educator Certification) for all Texas public schools. These applications help Client improve outcomes for all of Texas’ 5 million plus students. The consultant understands and interprets program/customer community's business requirements and produces interactive dashboard solutions. The consultant also supports projects through the software development life cycle, to support the agency initiatives by:

  • Reviewing business requirements and producing performant technology solutions to meet these requirements.
  • Performing tasks to implement developed solutions to Test and Production environments
  • Implementing post-implementation support of systems
  • Providing technical documentation to capture all aspects of the developed solution either by updating existing documentation or creating new ones.


Required Skills/Experience:

  • Strong communication, organization, and facilitation skills.
