Optimization: Custom database design, programming and problem solving
Taking an existing system and making it run more efficiently--that's database optimization. It's accomplished through reviewing how queries are built, adding indexing, de-duplicating, cleaning data (did you know that those errant keystrokes were actually saved?) and turning on and observing performance measures.
Q. What kind of projects need optimization?
when the db has grown over time
when it's slower than it used to be
when the db hangs
when reports that took minutes take hours
when you're adding new functionality
Q. Can I get references?
A. Of course. Email me and I'll send you a list.
Q. Can you handle large scale projects?
A. I have worked in Western Massachusetts since the mid-80's. I maintain contacts with many of the programmers and systems professionals in the Pioneer Valley.
Q. What if I don't see my database on your list?
A. Contact me anyway. We may be able to figure it out; if not, I'm likely to know whom to call.
