Consultant Profile:
An end-to-end Technical Consultant specialized in documenting client’s data, workflow, business
processes and reporting requirements as well as implementing it using Vermilion Reporting Suite
(specialty), SSIS, SSRS, Power BI and Excel BI operating primarily within financial services. My strength
lies in seeing the client’s vision, their requirements and tech stack to formulate a solution that provides
them with a target operating model that fulfills their production reporting requirements.
In my recent engagements, I have used Vermilion Reporting Suite to deliver Client Reporting needs for
my clients using inbuilt features of the software as well as combination of SQL/Java/VBA to overcome
software limitations to achieve requirements. Previous report deliveries include Factsheets, KIIDs, Fund
Profiles, Valuations, MIS and Investment reports in various output formats: PDF, PowerPoint, Excel and
XML. I have acquired considerable on-the-job business knowledge of financial lifecycle and fund
structures over my 10 years in the field and that helps me to engage with business stakeholders and
elicit requirements that are invaluable in designing their Data models and DataMart. My technical nous
allows me to architect a easy to maintain solution supported by data management and BAU activities.
