Meet Doug Tonya, a junior Business Analyst/Data Analyst candidate. Doug completed a project at Wells Fargo Bank as a BSA which involved 130 different vendors providing data. Vendors’ data came from different internal databases, causing a bottleneck and preventing the vendors and Wells employees from viewing the aggregated data easily. Doug worked with internal and external web-services and API’s (using internal tools) , SOAP UIs, and SQL in order to query and communicate the existing data, views, tables and sources. The project’s resolution was to consolidate the data into an internal Wells’ database which stopped the bottleneck and allowed Wells and its vendors to view the data. He gathered requirements from business users including C level executives, vendors and development. As a software engineer in the beginning of his career, Doug wrote code for Androis and iOS devices, and likes and feels comfortable working with developers and data.
