School Analytics (Power BI)

The goal was to develop school-wide data literacy so that school management can analyze, interpret and use data to guide all decisions that improve outcomes for the student and school community.

Created dashboards for student wellbeing, student performance, leadership, student achievement and certification, and many others.

Snowflake and Power BI Reporting: Cloud Computing in Healthcare

I worked as a data engineer and BI consultant to create Power BI, paginated, and SSRS reports for healthcare clients. The custom data warehouse was implemented in Snowflake, and all the reports were sourced from Snowflake.

I also created semantic views in Snowflake to support the Power BI reports. I performed R&D on different tools to schedule Power BI and paginated reports to the users and user security.

Power BI Reporting - Fintech

I created Power BI dashboards for a fintech company to automate and standardize their financial reporting and bookkeeping process. Row-level security and access to dashboards online were managed, and users were able to access the reports online as well as get the reports sent to mail.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud (ADWC) Migration Project

The existing on-premise Oracle Retail Analytics system was migrated to the Oracle ADWC platform, which included migration of the data model, ETL, and reporting systems.

Around 1,500 tables, 10TB data, 1,000 standard reports, and 2,500 report schedules were migrated as part of this project.

Oracle Retail Analytics Implementation

I worked as a project lead for implementing Oracle Retail Analytics for multiple US and APAC clients. As part of this Oracle base data model, I implemented the ETL process, and pre-built reports, including custom integration, OBIEE, BI Publisher, and Power BI reports.

The reports were also scheduled to users via different channels like email, printer, network drive, and others.

B2B Portal Reports

Designed and developed semantic layer for B2B platform and developed a set of Oracle BI Publisher reports. The suppliers accessed these reports from the B2B portal to get information on purchase orders, payments, compliance, and more. These reports also had data level security implemented; hence, each supplier could only view their own data.

Power BI Reporting for a Startup Business

I created a set of Power BI reports for a startup retail business to help them track customer orders and fulfillment. The reports also helped the client to see their business performance and key KPIs like sales, margin, top customers, and service level.

AWS Data Pipeline and Tableau Reporting

I was the technical lead in the project to design and implement a custom customer data model and enable Tableau reporting. It integrated the data from multiple source systems over the AWS platform and ingested it into the RedShift database with S3 as a data lake. With the base data model created, a semantic layer was designed for the Tableau reports, and reports were built in Tableau. Tableau reporting had both pre-built reports and a self-servicing functionality.

Tableau Expert for Ecommerce Cosmetic Retailer - PT Royal Persona Indonesia

A reporting platform with a built-in Tableau gives business users and key stakeholders access to the data to make smarter decisions. A data warehouse was also built with automated pipelines to support the reporting platform to integrate the data from different source systems into the RedShift database. AWS Glue and Lambda functions were used to build the pipelines, and a Glue workflow was used to orchestrate the pipelines. As part of the implementation, various analytical reports, such as stock aging, sales and margin reports by channels and brand, and other executive reports were built.

Tableau Dashboards

Created Tableau dashboards and reports to automate the current financial business reports and provide more insights to the operations and management team on revenue, risk assessment, customer cohort, and other business areas. As part of this, the data warehouse was designed in Snowflake and AWS tech stack, along with Matillion ETL for Snowflake. Tableau was used as the reporting tool for the business.

Data Engineer (Tableau) for Top Consumer Food Company

I designed and created Tableau reports to assist the business with an ongoing marketing project. The Tableau reports created replaced over 100 manual spreadsheets and multiple hours of manual effort on the business and data team.

Platform Support

I helped the client implement Microsoft Power BI as their business intelligence (BI) tool and streamline the existing tech stack. I connected with the business in gathering reporting requirements and designed and built a new patient report, patient scheduling report, and other marketing reports to track leads to appointments.

Data Model for a Financial Company

As a data architect, I designed and implemented an integrated data warehouse platform in Snowflake to ingest data from different 3rd-party source systems, enabling businesses to access crucial data and insights for daily operations.
