My expertise covers a range of technologies but my principal focus has always been on the development of innovative technical solutions employing database technology (Access, DB2, Informix, Oracle, SQL Server etc.) as the backend for enterprise solutions. For the past 2-3 years my emphasis has been on C#.Net, primarily with SQL Server or integration projects across Office technologies (Access, Excel and VBA) . From a functional perspective, my experience includes: operations research, military analyses; healthcare analyses; and finance and...

During 25 years as the principal IT "guru" and "go-to-guy" for an operations research (OR) consulting firm I have acquired unique and proven insights on the design, development and deployment of applications that are: useful (provide the user with a needed capability); useable (the capability is easy and convenient to use); and used (applications that are useful and useable will actually be used effectively). I have also acquired an extensive toolkit that is useful for fixing existing applications and, more importantly, rescuing development projects that have somehow gone awry.
My intent is to leverage this experience in order to provide clients with timely, cost-effective and well-structured solutions to their IT challenges whether those are: new applications, refit of legacy applications, or the rescue of behind schedule/over cost development efforts.
I'm committed to the use of appropriate tools ... for example, Cobol, C , C#, or a proprietary 3GL (e.g. Delphi) or 4GL (e.g. Focus) can all be used in appropriate circumstances as the application language. Similarly the database approach employed may be XML, relational, hierarchical, network, or OLAP. In a Windows environment Access and/or Excel may be all that is needed. In many cases, given the client environment, Lotus Domino may be the answer to web applications in lieu of ASP, Java, or .NET.
My principal area of expertise is the design and development of databases including the user interfaces required...
