Managed resources and budget, conducted bi-weekly project team meetings and provided weekly project scorecard reports to upper management. Also created the system architecture design and participated in system development as a Powerbuilder resource.
Oracle PL/SQL stored procedures on the backend, which reside in a schema on the data warehouse (Oracle 9i). Two-tier Powerbuilder 9 front-end reporting application which allows for user-definition of runtime parameters and user-execution of the back-end analytics.
