CMS: WordPress, Drupal, Dreamweaver, Joomla
Prior to using WordPress for all of the sites I used Joomla or Drupal as well as hand coding in HTML CSS and using Dreamweaver for development. I currently use VS Code for all my hand coded sites and work.
Databases: Azure, SharePoint, MMIS, DS3, Citrix, Access, Enterprise, COGNOS, MYSQL, PHPMyAdmin, CPanel
The robust Azure & SharePoint system used by Microsoft in combination with Excel and Power BI was a great system to work with for modifying accounts and tracking data.
Citrix was a database that was used to track various types of data for the clients that Nine Star served.
DS3 is the main database currently in use with Senior and Disability Services but it is in the process of being replaced. DS3 originally was a Cold Fusion based system but has migrated to a .NET framework. The replacement system is named Harmony and went live in the winter of 2018.
MMIS or Medicaid Medical Information System has been replaced by Enterprise and is a good system that Harmony will eventually interface with. This system’s report manager, COGNOS provides a robust system to track data.
Graphic Art Suites: Corel Draw, Inscape, Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, Visio, Star UML, Dia, Freemind
The Corel Draw Suite is a main tool for my drafting and design work for sewing patterns and technical writing. Inkscape is the Open Source version of it and is used to do various drawings in .svg formats.
Umls are used to diagram processes in Visio and Star Uml.
One of my main tools is Freemind, Freeplane and now Scapple for mind mapping ideas and outlining books.
Office Suites: Office 365, Master Certified Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office 95-2016, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio, Microsoft SharePoint 2007-2016, OneNote, Open Office, Adobe Pro, Adobe DC
I use or have used all of these office suites heavily. They are the main stay of my workflows.
I am certified in MS Office and have continued my education using State of Alaska Trainings for SharePoint eventually earning the respect of the IT administration team and
granted my own sandbox to work in as well as full control over the Provider Certification Unit site and the Division’s Archiving site.
I used OneNote to compile a reference manual of all of the procedures for the Certification unit.
Word and Excel were used heavily to do mail merges as well as many other tasks including checklists and data tracking as well as graphs and charts for reports up to the Federal level.
Adobe Pro was used to “jailbreak” documents into Word and Excel, date stamp incoming certification applications and many other tasks including as a pivotal tool in a massive mail merge. I also used it to create the Certification Application and add fill in fields to ensure that applications were legible and data entry was accurate.
This is but a small portion of the variety of software and tools I use or have used on a daily basis. The list could go on and on!
