I'm Jon Casemore and I'm the director of Keen Solutions. I've been working in the Business Intelligence community since 2000 for various companies and clients that include well known names such as Carphone Warehouse, Sony Computer Entertainment, Legal & General, ING and Barclays.

My core skills centre around the technical delivery of Business Intelligence solutions on the Oracle platform utilizing the Informatica product suite, particularly Powercenter, of which I have many years of experience of development, architecture, administration and support. I have a rich understanding of PLSQL development methods, as well as many years of experience across in the methods and scripting of UNIX. 

I am versatile in my development approach, having much experience of the classic Waterfall and Agile (Scrum) methodologies. I have comfortable committing myself to any mode of working and I offer flexibility and enthusiasm to all of my projects. I am a strong believer in software development principles, particulary those around reuse, scalability, error handling, 'keeping it simple', and requirements driven analysis, development and testing. I am also passionate about driving better information through data quality.

I am an advocate of professionalism in everything I do and I believe that great teamwork can produce higher quality (and often lower cost!) products.
