I've been in the Software Industry for my entire 25 year career and have worked in the UK, France, USA, NZ and Australia. I've done the software startup, I've worked for big tech companies and spent some time in Silicon Valley.
For the past several years my company and an associated company in the UK have specialised in designing and building Data Warehouses using Data Vault technology to support business intelligence analytics in the Amazon Cloud and I generally working remotely in the UK everyday.
We can take data from various operational business systems such as Sales, Phone systems, CRMs, Logistics, Financials etc. and provide our customer's with a view of their business KPIs such as
Which employees are the most productive?
What does the sales pipeline look like compared to last month, last year?
Are we on target, over, under, by how much?
Which orders are forecasted to lose money?
Who are my best or worst customers using different measures?
Using Data Vault methodology the database is infinitely scaleable, high performant and it can be fully auditable by tracking the history of changes to the data.
Building a Data Warehouse on Amazon AWS can be very cost effective compared to Commercial Data Warehouse vendors and data can be integrated from multiple sources to give a complete picture.
If you're thinking about a Data Warehouse, Big Data or Business Intelligence or Analytics solutions for your business give me a yell. I'm a Certified Data Vault Practitioner (CDVP2) as well as a Certified Scrum Master (CSM).
...and I occasionally build websites using WordPress, but that's really just a hobby.
