data modeling

Design & Build Data Warehouse

Your data is valuable and should be leveraged to help make important decisions. Build an Entity Relationship Diagram to map out your database to visualize what you have.

Starting from a Profit & Loss report, I built out dimension and fact tables that are loaded every morning by an SSIS package. We were able to build historical financial reports that would run in under 10 seconds for a $100 million dollar company. The Data Warehouse was key to uniting the separate Financial and Operation Systems.


Project Management Software

The right tools are essential for any job and a personal Project Management System can streamline and visualize the future.

  • Kanban Board
  • Development Request System with Approvals
  • Roadmap with Sprint Planning & Gantt Chart
  • Work Breakdown Structure
  • Lessons Learned Knowledge Base
  • Project Charter & Service Level Agreements

Predictive Analytics

Allow your data to make the business decisions. Push your data through statistical algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes.

Worked with teams to build a probability index for Employee retention from gauging tenure, hours worked per week, drive time from home to the office, and several other key factors using linear regression and a decision tree. We were also able to segway this model to predict the likelihood of an accident on the job.
