Database Analytics & Applications
Specializing in two Microsoft product solutions:
* Power BI (Business Intelligence)
* Application Development
Cahaba Data derives its name from the Cahaba River which is our state's longest free flowing river. Since 2003 I have worked with organizations concerning managing & understanding their data through custom application development & reporting. There is a wide variation in costs between solutions developed via Windows applications, Web applications, Remote Connectivity and Mobile applications. I have been in Information Technology my entire business career with both large and small companies. I will guide/advise new potential clients if their requirement is not suitable via the development tools that I use and suggest other technology alternatives.
Power BI: This is a data mining / analytics / reporting solution that is both cloud based and Windows based. It is a comprehensive solution that provides Reports/Graphs/Dashboards from independent data sources. The data source can be any system/application/web and does not need to be a Microsoft product. On a commercial basis Microsoft's Power BI competes with Tableau and Qlik - among others. I assist organizations in implementing their Power BI solution which is a complex product requiring data modeling and customization.
Database Applications: When a custom application needs to be built - a Windows application remains the most cost effective path to a powerful business solution. The continuously increasing power of PCs allows them to provide a powerful, affordable, multiuser application. While Microsoft Access is used by many as a product like Excel - I use it as a development environment like Visual Studio. A custom application can be built using Access as the development environment with a friendly, non technical User Interface.
As a Subject Matter Expert I was selected by Microsoft Press to perform a technical review of their textbook: Access 2010 Inside Out. You will find my name on the Acknowledgements page.
To specialize in the implementation of the database applications inherently also includes SQL and VBA skills.
Customers: The importance and complexity of a database application demands a long term perspective and viewing the business relationship as teaming with an experienced, seasoned USA based developer that will be reliably available when needed. Telephone and online meetings have always proven to be satisfactory in supporting a client so that there are no geographic limitations. Past and present customers include:
* Milo’s Tea (Birmingham)
* ExxonMobil (Houston)
* Mahaffey Fabric Structures (Memphis)
* Amicus Therapeutics (New Jersey)
* SpecialtyJava.com (Minneapolis)
* Snack Pro Vendors (Chicago)
* Hyatt Hotels (St. Louis)
* Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta
* Oncotherapeautics (California)
* Attorneys Insurance Mutual (Birmingham)
I am happy to discuss with you regarding approaches in managing your information.
