Highlights of Expertise

What I do...

Agile / Waterfall SDLC

I have eight years of experience working in Agile and Waterfall SDLC projects. Agile methodology is the complete opposite of the waterfall model. It does have all the steps that are mentioned in the waterfall model but instead of following it in a sequential manner, agile methodology follows the collaboration process of everyone involved in the SDLC.

Data Mining and Analysis

The difference between data analysis and data mining is that data analysis is used to test models and hypotheses on the dataset, e.g., analyzing the effectiveness of a marketing campaign, regardless of the amount of data; in contrast, data mining uses machine learning and statistical models to uncover clandestine or hidden patterns in a large volume of data.


Project Management

Project management is the process of leading the work of a team to achieve goals and meet success criteria at a specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints.


Metadata Defect Management

Every big corporation has data quality teams those are responsible for validating accuracy of provided datasets, no one wants SHARP which is big a issue.


SQL and Unix Scripting

is a set of SQL commands saved as a file in SQL Scripts. A SQL script can contain one or more SQL statements or PL/SQL blocks.A shell script is a computer program designed to be run by the Unix systems.
