Steve Hughes is the Director of Consulting at Pragmatic Works. In my current role, I manage the consultant team at Pragmatic Works and direct implementation of our cloud practices for customers. I focus on team development and company growth with this role. In my previous role as a Principal Consultant Lead, I focused on designing solutions for customers on Microsoft technologies including SQL Server, Power Platform, and Azure.
I have been working with technology for over 20 years, with much of that time spent on creating business intelligence solutions and helping customers implement leading BI and cloud solutions. I am passionate about using data effectively and helping customers understand that data is valuable and profitable. I also have experience working with a large Software as a Service vendor where I received awards for customer satisfaction and engineering excellence.
I have received Consultant of the Year honors at Magenic, the Engineering Excellence Award at XATA, and President’s Award at Pragmatic Works. I have delivered multiple presentations on data architecture, business intelligence, and cloud solutions over the years.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Sheila since 1993. We are the parents of four awesome adult children who are awesome! You can follow some of those adventures on the Fun Info page of the site.
Kristyna Hughes is a data analyst at GlobalTranz. I have played an instrumental role in moving our company from 3 different reporting platforms to hosting our reporting within Power BI. I provide advice on security structures within the platform, manage the gateways, create and implement design strategies, train, and build reports for both our internal operations committee and external customers. I will also be aiding in embedding Power BI within an unified TMS and ensuring various levels of security are maintained within the embedded reports.
I am passionate about using quantitative data to answer qualitative questions. Working side-by-side with key stakeholders to both ask the right questions and arrive at data-driven solutions, I believe that data is only as useful as the questions it is trying to answer and as powerful as the tools employed.
I am a new home owner and the first of those awesome adult children mentioned above. Check out that Fun Info page for some of my hobbies and updates on the house.
