MS Access Development – Two Men and a Garden Salsa Co. 2015
Short term Pro-bono project (for friend.) Enhance MS Access database used to track batches of salsa and pickles as well
as the batches of ingredients that go into the products. This database is critical to meeting FDA requirements for
producing and marketing the products. Data entry is done by the owner.
AT&T CONTRACTO R (VIA NEXTGEN)
Data Governance –BI Data Warehouse (BIDW) Organization 2014-
Created and maintained MS Access interfaces to enhance Data Governance activities for AT&T Business Clients. Data was
collected from various Metadata sources including Oracle, Teradata, IBMInfosphere and Erwin Modeling tool. These
interfaces facilitated various SDLC validation activities that saved both IT and Business clients dozens of hours per Project.
These Interfaces included:
o Sprint Manager: This MS Access tool Linked data from GRoMiT (see below) and comparing it to Rally downloads,
clients could validate requirements for data movement into Warehouse are being met.
o AIM (Alliance Information Model) Navigator: This MS Access Tool facilitates the use of GRoMiT data to validate
BI Structure completeness and mapping of data (Data Lineage) into and out of the BI Warehouse.
o AIM Compare Utility: This MS Access Tool pulls metadata from 4 sources: Oracle (GRoMiT), Teradata, ERwin
Data Model and IBM Metadata Workbench (MDWB) to validate development process for structures (Tables and
Views) definition is being followed for Objects overseen by the BI-Model Admin team.
