BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE

Using my 15 years experience in developing business intelligence software and using data acquisition tools, databases, data warehouse automation and presentation tools, I can show you how to use your data better and make a real impact on your business.

FROM DATA TO INSIGHT

I am skilled at providing business insight and analysis, creating key performance indicators (KPIs) and performance monitoring. I have a deep understanding of client-server development and the “full stack” from data acquisition to presentation - from raw data to intelligence.

SELF-SERVE BI COACHING

With experience in teaching and running small teams, I can also help your people to become self-sufficient in acquiring insight from your existing data and help you to turn your organisation into a self-serve Business Intelligence organisation.

TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

Automated tools for data preparation and modelling using Microsoft SQL Server and data warehouse automation and presenting using Microsoft Power BI, for a large financial institution.

Over 12 years at a large UK retailer, I built a custom reporting and business intelligence system from the ground-up using open-source systems - Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Java and Javascript. This was used daily by thousands of stores in several countries. I also created web-based data entry systems and acquired experience with BI / visual analytics packages Tableau and Pentaho and development technologies/methodologies such as Laravel, Code Igniter, jQuery, Angular, Perl, Python, REST, test-first development and dimensional modelling.


Self-employed software engineer working in mobile applications for Symbian, Nokia and Opera Software building resilient software using “Design Patterns” in C++. I took an interest in front end development and designed UI specs for several mobile phones apps.

I am very customer focused and use a hybrid “agile” approach involving continuous release and ongoing stakeholder input.I have a structured approach to development using source control, automated deployment and project management tools such as GIT, Source Tree, JIRA.

PERSONAL BACKGROUND AND ASPIRATIONS

I understand business and enjoy having ownership of a project, given autonomy and the opportunity to innovate. I also enjoy managing small teams and helping them to improve their skills. 


I have good written and spoken communication skills and enjoy public speaking and presentation. 


I have a mathematical background which includes some of the maths which forms the basis of artificial intelligence for my second degree (MSc Distributed Multimedia Networks) and I take an active interest in science.


I take an interest in local, national and international news. I have had articles published in the Manchester University newspaper, in the Guernsey Press and once in The Guardian. 


I have experience of teaching English as a foreign language and of teaching Maths at secondary school. I have travelled fairly widely and can communicate well with non-native English speakers. I can also speak passable French and Norwegian as well as some Spanish and German.  


I like to keep fit - running and working on my handstand - and enjoy surfing and snowboarding. I play music, with experience busking and on the stage, and enjoy a cryptic crossword!
