Crafting technology for a better tomorrow

Headshot of Elias Vakkuri

Elias Vakkuri

Software consultant, owner

I design and build solutions in the intersection of cloud and data. I've been working with digital strategy and solutions since 2014 and implementing data platforms in multiple industries and various public clouds since 2017.

With roots in both strategy consulting and tech, my biggest strength is versatility - I'm comfortable both designing new initiatives with business representatives and implementing them with developers.

I'm most interested in projects with systemic impact, e.g. in education, energy, and healthcare.

    Power BI Embedded autoscaling

    1/2024 - 1/2024

    PoC for setting up autoscaling for client's Power BI Embedded capacities.

    We evaluated whether it was possible to save costs by scaling capacity based on current usage while maintaining a good user experience. Within a short timeframe, we were able to discover what options and limitations Power BI Embedded has in client's use case.
