November 2011 - October 2013 (Staff)
Senior System Architect / BI / Data Architect
Confidential, Wellesley, MA
Tasked to Review, Analyze, Retire and rebuild Infrastructure while maintaining Legacy and targeting maintenance of current operations while, expanding scope and moving key CRM application from 10 year old operational CRM system, in parts, to SalesForce Core linking back to new back-office system of ODS MS SQL databases, supporting 4 reporting systems; Cognos 10, Crystal, Tableau and SSRS, Goal was a consolidated and Automated BI System.
I supported and extended the Intranet and Customer facing extranet SharePoint Portal creating an improved indexing tool set with enhanced search for a 6 TB legal document database, critical to main LOB, and created customized components utilizing .NET tools, Upgraded to SharePoint 2010 and built a whole series of BI components for specialized data reporting and access in near real time, building out the back end Datamart with CDC and complex views for reporting. All controlled by Roles in Active Directory. Built out, customized and took through testing a 2013 SharePoint Installation.
After the analysis stage and planning for Legacy we retired 10 physical servers, regularized and expanded our Amazon AWS presence and built out a VMWARE 4.X Installation with a physical installation of 4.X VSPHERE and 3 Physical servers supporting 192 GB RAM; all this supporting 40+ VMs replacing everything from 2005 through 2008 Server and SQL. 6 Months later we switched to 5.X which allowed RAM expansion and SQL 2012. I was directly responsible for a growing Amazon AWS installation, supporting Social Media Data, Software Development needs and a Microsoft Azure site that supported Data Marts for reporting.
The DataMarts were fed by ODS which was populated by the Two CRM Packages (SFDC and, NET Backoffice), Google Analytics and ETL transactions from purchased Databases and Government Data. Another Stream used Google Analytics Data populating specialized Data Marts with merged data for the Social Media Team and Predictive Analytics Team.
I led/executed the effort to identify a product, test and install/replace Backup Exec with AppAssure. Reduced maintenance (required by large quantity of tape swaps) 80% with no off hour presence local requirement or tape bays.
I supported MS GP for Finance; including ETL transfers to the ODS. I installed, upgraded and supported the Visual Studio 2012->TFS environment used by straight line development at Confidential and the Social Media Environment (AWS based) at D50 Media.
In 2012 we began the effort to replace our principal .NET CRM system, Pivotal, with Salesforce. Tested two products in situ (Microsoft Dynamics and SalesForce. Management chose SFDC as the CRM, I led/executed the effort to identify a product, test and install a near real time ETL product (Jitterbit) that would both allow us to constantly stream data to and from SalesForce and the Legacy System. A growing percentage of functions were replaced by SalesForce with the information returned to the Legacy CRM system both for operation, archiving and reporting use. By 2014 the Local CRM system would be in SalesForce and the same near real time ETL, Jitterbit, software would be morphed into a support system to stream data to a planned ODS (Operational Data Store) This would contain Operational and Back-Office Databases which would then automatically present feeds to support everything from a Data Warehouse to the four reporting engines to real time Dashboard Feeds to SharePoint.
I led/executed the effort to identify, test, install and support a new high end reporting product for the Analytics Group. First we compared in site tests Qlikview and Tableau. The product chosen was Tableau and it is currently in use both for Analytics and reporting. I built out the needed servers, installed Tableau, built out needed Data Marts and the Repository, designed the first 25 reports, trained the two point people for the users and acted as general oversight for the product.
I managed, designed and tested SSIS to replace Datastage. All the while I supported analysis, ETL dBs and Reporting covering everything from government table intakes to operational reporting to Google Analytics.
