My workload in my role at Ferguson consists solely in application development which draws data from our production servers in Oracle for review and analysis in C# and VB.NET as the primary framework. For reporting tools I have built and maintain applications spanning from .NET solutions to Excel VBA applications. These applications produce valuable data to branch managers and corporate heads which they use as an aid to make key decisions in their daily duties. I personally manage a corporate website built in ASP.NET with a C# base that houses tools for users within our private network to access and draw information from our production Oracle servers. This web solution acts as a liaison that governs user access to sensitive data through a local user security system, and also houses a suite of C# tools that produce reports and functions. My applications are all interconnected between the production Oracle server for data mining, and through my personal and corporate Microsoft SQL servers for dynamic data storage and application management.
