Meet one of Talavant's Senior Consultants, Gill Rowley.
Gill has been around data for the majority of his career. Working as a DBA for quite some time before transitioning to BI, he knows the ins and outs of a database. He originally started his career as a DBA and Websphere Administrator for a large insurance company in Madison. Gill was responsible for installing configuring, maintaining the SQL Server database systems, as well as maintaining the corporate web platforms and sites. From there, he transitioned into a different Consulting company, prior to Talavant, where he delivered Business Intelligence Solutions within the Poultry industry.
Some of the main technical expertise that Gill brings to the Talavant team is his several years of experience in all aspects of Database Administration. He can assist with virtually anything, from installation and configuration to performance tuning to high availability/disaster recovery. In addition, he has quite a bit of experience with SQL Server Integration Services and has worked with different data from all types of industries.
When asked, what a client would say about his past performance, this is some of the comments he has heard:
“People have said I have developed solutions that make their heads spin. I’ve had clients notify my superiors of my outstanding work on troubleshooting long running processes, in one case taking a 20-minute process and reducing it to 10 seconds. I get a quick understanding of the problems presented to me, and work diligently with the client to find the best solution.”
In Gill’s free time, when he is not solving data problems he enjoys, hunting, fishing, boating, and riding his motorcycle. He also enjoys brewing his beer!
