I provide services to businesses of all sizes, so please feel free to get in touch if you need obligation free advice or a quote.

Business Intelligence
Power BI is the new power in the world of BI. It has rapidly gained ground on other BI products, and is particularly useful to Excel users. The desktop application is free, find out more at  Mike Allen Systems
Data Services
As businesses progress and migrate to new systems, one of the continuing issues is the preservation and migration of valuable data between systems. Fortunately this issue can be managed with a little preparation and some 'Data Wrangling'. Data Analysis will also help you to understand you data and how it can be used to help build you business.
Business Analysis
At the heart of good business analysis is listening to customers and the intelligent analysis of business needs, this is one of my key skills. There is never a magic bullet, but there are often low hanging fruit. Planning and prioritizing remedial actions to improve your IT systems is the next important step, followed by the execution of the plan.
Business Services
Every business accumulates their share of content such as spreadsheets, databases, reporting solutions and SharePoint sites. These items need to be retained and updated. I can help you keep your content up-to-date and streamline your office automation.
Instructional Videos
I create videos to help people using BI features of Excel and PowerBI, check out my  You Tube Channel . Videos can be an excellent way of recording and teaching correct business procedures, so that instruction can be easily provided to staff. Videos are a lot quicker to produce than written documentation, have a chat to me, I'm looking for a challenge here!
