All code is now in Production SQL 2012 SERVER.

Created connections to SPOT FIRE tool for reporting:

b) (12/1/2013 – 9/1/2015) I developed an auditing application to calculate the cost for purchasing and to maintaining every application used globally by SHELL. This process estimated a saving of 2.5 million dollars yearly, by using multiple levels of invoice data and Tpmc2 (Slice) calculated formulas. The logic allows for applications to be identified for removal or expense savings. This process involves an (ETL) processes and parsing data from various data tools such as, EMPIS, APEX, SPOTFIRE, and FlexNet. The major database used is MS Sql Server 2012. The Application is written in VB.net app (Bata).

I completed design, development and go live implementation of the "Procurement" creation, retrieval and tracking tool needed for concurrent manipulation of records by over 100 users . The program is VB.NET using SQL 2012 as the database. This project involved converting all data, logic and computations originating in excel sheets. Next the proof of concept was established, then the .Net application was created (in version 2012).

Next all data (200 columns, 650,000 records) from Excel were parsed via ETL into SQL Server, and all data is verified. There is a backend process that allows for editing the server data.

I created technical and very complex SQL solutions to Retrieve, Parse and Update data (aka ETL). I created training manuals and technical manuals. Examples of my processes are:

1) Several automated scripts written in VBS to Update, Delete and Parse data on OHM SQL Database. It then returns data via CSV format and then Emails all designated recipients and users, and also creates a LOG file for archival audit. This script is run on the MS Task Scheduler.

2) Several MOH_Disclosure_Forms, using Three Languages, C#, VB Application and ASPX.NET website. The data source is both SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2005. The data is parsed from SharePoint into a CSV, and Data is saved in SQL Server.

I maintained and stabilized the Access.mdb (by tweaking all the VBA code and sql code). First I created DTS Packages for converting the CSV files into the database, and SSIS packages to Create New Tables and special data manipulation. Next I updated it to a C# webpage GUI for navigating through the payroll process. I created multiple SSRS packages that automate -via email- new reports every Friday.

SQL CONVERSION Project: I modified over 50 SQL queries consisting of Casting Date/time, strings and integers into proper data-types.

My forms and reports, allow the user to login, enter & track purchase-orders, and to view very complex (Daily, Quarterly & Yearly) Charts.

The Charts reflect Budget vs. Actuals (trending performance metrics) and critical incident-reporting Data.

I improved the speed of the database by 40% by rewriting code, tuning the Database and transforming the Data (i.e. the Data contained Nulls, and incorrect Data-types).

The Database is backed-up for recovery as an MDE file type.

All of the coding procedures and processes were thoroughly documented.

And the Module code is scalable for future conversions.

The application has several phases:

o(a) the “ETL” process using .Net w/C#, VBS, HTA/JavaScript, to instruct the Sabre server to return XML files. Next VBS parses the XML files (using RegEx,WMI, J2EE, Perl) into readable text files that are sent to SQL 2005 via SSIS package’s and FTP to the server.

o(b) Once stored on the serve the data is transformed into business logic data. That data is viewed in an C#.Net application that prints out reports in SSRS format.

o(c) The DATA is also used in HTA (a lite-web) VBScript DASHBOARD for internet data viewing; and also in desktop applications (including Access & Excel, for desktop frontend reporting).
