As a consultant, a key roll of mine is to solve problems with a few basic steps:
- find the problem
- quantify the problem
- finally, write an app to solve the problem
I’ve developed apps that are built in three months too apps that are build in three years with a team of developers. No problem is too small or too big.
Database developer and analyst
Applications can sabotage a database incrementally over time and by the time it has become obvious dirty data exponentially becomes worse. Typically fixing the application bug or a broken business process is easy but analyzing data with complex auditing techniques can be not only tedious but high risk.
That’s where I come in and some of my colleagues come in. We’ll analyze the business rules, audit the data accordingly with custom scripts or applications I’ve written then either make a recommendations or perform the actual data cleansing with more custom tools I’ve written.
