System Innovations consults to all levels of companies, for example Ernst & Young, GTE, Bank of America, GE Power Systems and Delta Airlines, in the areas of enterprise integration, data modeling and other large scale technical projects. I specialize in the next generation business applications that run on the Internet; specifically, platforms that will allow for better, faster business exchange. I also work with professional recruiters on specific consulting opportunities from time to time.

For small business clients I specialize in:

Technical Mentoring - The technical mentoring program is six months of unlimited access to me by e-mail, phone, fax, regular mail, etc. We can meet in person, as well, if convenient for both of us. I help people strategically (how to benefit from Internet technology, how to obtain higher utilization from existing technology investments, how to approach enterprise-scale projects in fortune 500 organizations, etc.), and tactically (what to say at the meeting tomorrow, critiquing proposals, reviewing designs and models, etc.).

Databases - Customer, marketing, survey and other types of databases. Using MS Access for small to medium projects, I provide data analysis, design and development of database and reports, forms and user-friendly interfaces to business information. Projects may also involve design of larger databases on production-strength RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems) such as SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle, Informix, DB2, etc. Such systems are often needed for performance considerations when small databases grow into large projects.

Internet - Strategy, design and development. Web presence, web-site, marketing plan and development of business case.  Presentation development for customer value assessment and project proposals. Systems integration for small or large projects, defining customer scenarios and viewpoint analysis models. If you've got a great idea for a website that just needs the technical expertise to make it happen, call to discuss the possibilities at telephone: 770-953-0534.

I have cooperative relationships with several professional recruiters in Atlanta and beyond, to share information and opportunities for mutual benefit.   Generally, I prefer to work on a "corp-to-corp" basis, I am incorporated and I do qualify as an independent consultant under IRS guidelines. I am equipped to work from home or on-site (as required) with professional office, fax, business voicemail, technical tools - laptop, modeling tools, RDBMS & programming tools, etc. I am willing to discuss travel for the right opportunity (up to 25%).
