Evaluate the impact of low quality and/or missing data on the performance of data warehouse client queries, and recommended changes. Identified design flaws in the data warehouse architecture that prevented ODBC data sources from operating correctly, which lead to a redesign of many entities and load processes by the data architect and data load team.
Designed and developed a prototype web application using ASP to augment the data warehouse read-only environment with read-write data specifically required for ad-hoc reporting and user-defined report modeling.
Designed and developed 50+ SQL Server DTS packages and supporting scheduled jobs using “watched directory” model to assist in automating the import of multiple datastreams extracted from the corporate mainframe and ftp’d to flat files loaded into a SQL Server 7.x 100GB datamart. Developed 50+ stored procedures to support application development, database monitoring and resulting event triggers. Stored procedures included “upsert” (update/insert) support, email notifications of event occurrences and scheduled job execution success/fail status updates.

Developed source file data analysis filters / cleaners in perl (and some in standard c) for all data sources for the managed care data mart. These perl applications provided the ability to produce data analysis domain statistics, determine the completeness of data contained in the mainframe extracts as a pre-requisite to loading, remove undesirable or unnecessary data and reformat data as required to conform to the physical staging table data structure. High performance, pre-sorting of data into primary key order was accomplished by integrating the ETL applications with a packaged third-party sorting utility.
Documented and prepared a presentation of the data sources, flows and processes involved in the current 300+ step managed care data mart monthly load processes in preparation to move the data mart into a legacy system operational stage since the system is being replaced by new enterprise data warehouse development. Provided knowledge transfer, training and support to in-house developers who will be responsible for loading and maintaining the managed care data mart until it is replaced by the new MARS system. Served as the technical lead for the standard rate template contract modeling project. This role included gathering requirements from the business experts, documenting the requirements, developing tasks, performing estimates, mentoring developers as all tasks are performed and reporting status to the project manager and the business owner.

Performed troubleshooting of Teradata BTEQ scripts and UNIX Korn shell scripts for the standard month-end accrual (SMA) application. This web project uses asynchronous updating techniques to improve perceived performance and scalability in the field. Multiple simultaneous korn shell scripts and BTEQ scripts perform batch updates of thousands of rows of data residing on the Teradata host. The server side portion of the application (a transaction queue) uses multiple daemon processes in combination with many korn shell scripts to achieve scalability and performance boosts. Identified timestamp out of sync errors between Teradata nodes (caused by time sync process death) which caused absurd timestamp anomalies in the various work queues (i.e. Work was processed before it was submitted). Notified DBA of issue and they restarted the time sync processes and added a step to test the time sync processes to their periodic operational procedures.
