My experience


BristolNovember 2012 - Present

Solution Architect, Developer, Instructor

At SWBI we cover all UK but we focus in the South West area where there are

tons of companies that London consultancies do not give the attention that
they deserve.

At the moment we have experts on IBM Cognos, SAP Business Objects and

Microsoft BI (SSRS & PowerBI) Reporting and Analytics. We are a small team but we have an extended network of trusted experts who have experience in

Tableau, Qlikview, Jaspersoft and several other Analytics tools.

We are experts in Data Warehousing, project management and business

analysis. I personally have years of experience in Finance Performance

Management with Cognos Planning and later with TM1.

At the moment we are exploring expanding our capacity on Big Data, Artificial

Intelligence and Machine Learning. We are also working with several charities,

therefore we are starting to create a Cloud Datawarehouse Solution specific for

charities, proving high value with low overheads, after a fairly small investment.

We are also delivering IBM Cognos courses on Report Studio, Query Studio,

Workspace Advance, IBM Cognos Connection, Framework Manager, etc.. We

can also deliver courses on other Reporting, BI and Analytics technologies.

Plan InternationalFebruary 2013 - Present

I was contracted to replicate IBM Cognos reports in HTML using web services

and a license free chart application. The client also requested some advise to

deliver reports to the whole company without license restrictions.

The job involved some developments in Java (Web Services) using XML,

JSON, SQL, HTML and CSS. Very exciting!

It is a pleasure to work for a charity (or NGO) that does such as great work for

children all around the world.


- In 2014 we upgrade their systems to Cognos 10.2.1.

- During 2013 and 2014 we keep developing reports based in an adhoc

application using webservices.

VictrexFebruary 2011 - September 2013

The company decided to switch to IBM Cognos Planning all their Budget, Cash

Flow and Balance Sheets. The project was managed by another consultancy

company but the project was highly delayed. I joined the project to give them

support initially for one month but I exceeded their expectations and stayed for
