Cahaba Data

                                   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. 

There is a wide variation in development time, features and costs between solutions developed as Windows applications, Web applications, Remote Connectivity and Mobile applications.  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:   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.  

I use Microsoft Access as a development environment like Visual Studio.  A custom application can be built with a friendly, non technical User Interface, where the users do not have to learn Access.


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)
                                     * (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.
