I have worked with both Windows and Linux-based Oracle installations. Size ranging from departmental in-house utilities to large systems i.e. major high-street retailers, the EU's research division, Amadeus (major airlines). Also have British security clearance.
I specialise in making existing systems faster by analysing the entire system, not simply adding hardware or creating lots of indexes. Every aspect from the hardware, disk layout, server parameters right up to individual SQL statements and the impact of concurrent long-running processes can be investigated. Working with off-the-shelf software (where SQL is not able to be updated) is possible.
