From Data Warehouse perspective
Twenty years of successful experience in the development of data architecture(s) and implementation of Data Models

Goal is to establish clients as

data warehousing ensures that the warehouse delivers clear value. Anything less

with the business, you can count on my services to ensure your success.

Extract Transform & Load (ETL) Tool Vendors
- I have evaluated and used many ETL tools. The specific tool which
is best for a particular environment will depend upon databases in utse.
For example an ETL tool for SQL Server will not necessarily be the same as for
an environment with Oracle and Sybase. Trend is for the large database vendors to package the ETL tool
with their systems, this can be evidenced by IBM's recent acquisition of
DataStage (April 2005), Oracle with OWB and MS SQL Server 2005.
- Caution is advised in your selection of the ETL tool since the success
of the Data Warehouse will depend on this particular tool which is key to
loading data in a manner which is dimensional, handles data complexities
effectively and maintains history.
