One of the founders of our corporation, data management and modeling expert Bill Thomas, heads CITI's data warehousing (DW) and Business intelligence (BI) practice. He brings to this role his experience with very large databases, dimensional modeling, data quality, standardization, analytics, dynamic visualization techniques, and organizational politics-things that are at the core of successful DW/BI implementations. In this role, he provides advanced level consulting to our customers as well as ensures consistency and high quality in our DW/BI solutions.
Mr. Thomas has been instrumental in making CITI a proven implementer of these interrelated disciplines that have become extremely important as government and industry organizations seek ways to improve efficiencies, detect and prevent fraud, and operate in the most cost-effective ways.
Mr. Thomas's initial field-based assignments, at the time of CITI's inception in 1996, involved leading design and development efforts for what would later become our long-time customers at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of State. Since those early days, he has held many technical and leadership positions at our company including database administrator, data architect, project manager, and division director. Among Mr. Thomas's professional credentials, he holds CBIP (Certified Business Intelligence Professional) certifications in both Leadership & Management and Data Analysis & Design, and he earned his B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Virginia.
