My name is Ryan McCauley, and I’m a data enthusiast working to bridge the gap between the data our systems and customers generate and making better business decisions. During the day, I’m a senior database architect at a large financial services company, and I spend my time there building Power BI data models and reports, doing data analysis, writing T-SQL and HIVE queries, a bit of .NET and Python, and training people to make sense of their data and build data tools of their own.
On my own time, I write small utilities to make things a little easier to do, as well as small consulting jobs. I’ve posted two of those utilities on Codeplex:
- SQL Server Contention Monitor – Show real time process blocks and block trees on SQL Server
- SQL Space Map – Shows data spaces visually, including index sizes for each table
I’ve presented at multiple SQL Saturday events, a Power Platform World Tour, and to corporate teams. I’m also available for consulting engagements to solve problems with or help people learn how to work with their data and Power BI, SQL Server, or other parts of the Microsoft data stack. If you’re interested in a consulting engagement or in having me come to speak with your team, let me know!
