WORK SUMMARY:
Mr. Benson has over 30 years experience in structuring information
and data analysis, requirements definition, designing associated
database architectures, programming, and implementation of the
resulting software applications. The primary focus of Mr. Benson's
many years of experience has been the design, development and
implementation of custom software applications. These applications
include a wide variety of tracking systems, decision support systems,
personnel, financial analysis, management accounting, and inventory
control systems. Mr. Benson has served as a consultant to numerous
clients regarding hardware and software alternatives and an
evaluation of their relative tradeoffs in terms of cost,
effectiveness, and simplicity. He is particularly skilled at
structuring information, both in terms of the database architecture
and its interfaces with the software application design. Recent
projects have included the design of a data warehouse structure for
energy price and volume data that integrates, consolidates, and
aggregates data from 26 independent data sources at multiple levels
of data granularity. The resulting data structure incorporates soft
data hierarchies on all major identifying keys, while simultaneously
preserving the ability to drill-down from the aggregation totals back
through to the lower levels of data rollups. Most of Mr. Benson's
custom software applications have been written in Microsoft Access.
