                                   Database Analytics & Applications

 

                                Specializing in two Microsoft product solutions:

                                     * Power BI (Business Intelligence)

                                     * Application Development 


Since 2003 I have worked with organizations concerning managing & understanding their data through custom application development & reporting.  I will always 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 - Dashboards:   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 a wide variety of independent data sources. 



Database Applications:   There is a wide variation in development time, features and costs between solutions developed as Windows applications, Web applications and Mobile 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 the most cost effective multiuser application when the data volume is appropriate.  I use Microsoft Access as a development environment (like Visual Studio) to build custom applications with a friendly, non technical User Interface, where the users do not have to learn Access.


 

I am a Contributing Member at the Microsoft Power BI Community Forum, and as a Subject Matter Expert I was selected to perform the technical review of the textbook: Access 2010 Inside Out (Microsoft Press), you will find my name on the Acknowledgements page.



The difference between a PC Database and a Server Database is the volume of data, not the complexity.  Many of the front end Windows applications that I build, and the majority of Power BI applications, link to SQL Server, Azure SQL or MySQL.  I have very strong skills in database design & best practices, and languages: SQL, VBA and DAX



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 screen sharing via 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)
