Directed, designed and managed the Proof of Concept/Benchmark project on behalf of NCR Teradata, beating IBM and Tandem which led to the sale of the Teradata system to Telekom Austria. This was followed by an upgrade 3 years later which doubled the size of the system.

The data warehouse was connected to an IBM MVS environment as well as Unix. Main responsibilities included Call Data Record design, transformation and management in the data warehouse. Other responsibilities included Database design/Physical Modelling, ETL design, Performance optimisation, SQL design & tuning, Archive/Restore strategy design, Data transformation design, Teradata Load Utilities and Database administration.

• Designed and developed the tool called TeraXtract. This tool is specifically designed to extract, migrate or automate archiving data from Teradata systems to other Teradata systems and into other platforms such as S/390 DB2, UDB/AIX. The tool automates the very large task of producing the scripts for such migrations. TeraXtract produces all FastExport, Teradata Archive, DB2 DDL, Optiload, DB2 Load and associated JCL for the migration of platforms.

• Designed and developed an automated data compression tool. This tool is specifically designed to optimise the use of storage on Teradata systems. The tool automates the analysis of space utilisation in a Teradata system, and provides recommendations for re-engineering Teradata physical tables to reclaim poorly used storage. For any accepted recommendations the tool generates all code necessary to realise the optimisations and recover poorly utilised storage. Client experiences have been overwhelmingly positive. Typical results have been the recovery of multiple terabytes of storage (allowing the deferral or avoidance of costly Teradata upgrades), as well as improved query performance and system throughput coming from more efficient physical tables.

• 3 months (2001) providing lead technical consultant for a platform migration project in Germany for Sparda Bank in Nuernberg. The project involved the migration of a Teradata DWH to DB2 EEE (UDB). This was a Teradata /IBM MVS environment.
