Ashvini Sharma

Ashvini Sharma's team is designing BI features for "Big Data". Previously, he was responsible for introducing new features to the engines behind PowerPivot for Excel, PowerPivot for SharePoint, and Analysis Services. Ash's goal for himself is to try and look busy at all times, and has a mixed track record in achieving that. The key, he believes, is to keep switching roles to keep from being found out, and as such he has been a tester/developer (lead)/program manager (lead) and now a group program manager within Analysis Services and Integrations Services since joining Microsoft in 1997.
