Gezelter Associates: Database/Software design, Software 5/08 - 5/10
I have been working under contract. I have signed a non-disclosure agreement with respect to their clients. However, I can briefly discuss the type of work I have been doing. I have designed a data warehouse decision support system using SQL server SSIS, stored procedures, triggers and SmartForecast for an engineering and manufacturing corporation. This includes the entire process of updates from the source production database and performance tuning for trend analysis. The source database contains individual tables with 50 – 100 million rows and growing. Optimizations of hardware and software requirements have been a key component in the success of this effort. The database physical and logical design require in depth analysis of the use and volume of all data. The collection of this information required detailed knowledge of the business requirements and a published report that was accepted by the client in advance of any formal development. Strict adherence to (S)oftware (D)evelopment (L)ife (C)ycle protocols and project management software have produced an end product on-time and under budget.
