Effective Leadership Style
I recently had the pleasure of working with Wylie at GE Healthcare. Wylie is a great IT leader who raises the bar on performance and fostering a collaborative knowledge sharing team environment. He encourages his team to predict business outcome and the needs of sr leadership. Wylie’s strong analytical skills coupled with his effective leadership style enabled him to consistently and successfully deliver numerous complex IT solutions to meet key business objectives.
Full End-to-End Solutions
Wylie did a phenomenal job while working as a technical contractor with Presence Health. He was able to develop full end-to-end solutions using Microsoft SQL technologies with minimal direction. He was able to effectively interact with business users to gather requirements, build a scope, and deliver the final product in a timely fashion. Not only did he do an exceptional job with the projects he was assigned to, he went above and beyond and hosted MS SQL classes covering various topics for my staff.
Excellent DBA, developer, technology speaker and trainer
I have worked with Wylie Blanchard for the past 6 months. Wylie is very intelligent and dedicated. He provided training sections to the technical/non-tech teams about the new system that we are going to upgrade to; accomplished projects that require both DBA and developer knowledge and experience and have never been done before in our department. You can always find someone to administer Database, troubleshoot issues, train the technical/non-technical staff, adventure new technology, etc.., but finding someone that has integrity and is trustworthy is truly valuable.
Applied Leadership and Technical Skills
Applied Leadership and Technical Skills are the best words to describe Wylie. He has a talent for looking at extremely complex challenges, designing solutions that are both effective and economical and implementing solutions while ensuring that everyone learns from the process. Wylie is also a pro at uncovering hidden value in others. Hire Wylie and his team to do a project, and he is going to deliver several options you never thought were possible. Lastly Wylie’s ability to execute on time and under budget is unparalleled to most of the individuals I’ve had the opportunity to work with elsewhere. He exceeds expectations in everything that he does for his clients, his staff and his employer.

Database Solutions Expert
Wylie has a passion and knowledge for SQL Server technologies that few can match. Whether the topic is everyday items like triggers, system views, and functions; to version and feature differences; to web solutions utilizing SQL Server, Wylie demonstrated a mastery of the subject matter that was above and beyond what was found in other seasoned professionals. Wylie would be a great asset and team member for anyone seeking a knowledgeable SQL Server professional for their project or team. His camaraderie, enthusiasm, and expertise that he brought everyday to the workplace will truly be missed.

Global Technology Leader
Wylie has been an outstanding technology leader of the HCI Team. He has been the key driver of a wide variety of improvements to the infrastructure, stability, and capability of IT. His leadership and organizational abilities have led to significant process improvements for HCI in areas including vetting technology vendors, software support and IT organizational management. Wylie deployed a database system which allowed HCI to be the first, of several state funded vendors, to utilize claims data for health risk assessment phase of our care coordination program. In addition, he led initiatives to improve consistency and reliability of key servers by moving them to an offsite data center, deployed a ticket and management system for our IT Helpdesk team and instilled an organizational approach to IT management. Wylie is a Global Technology Leader and I would highly recommend Wylie for any IT team and look forward to working with him in the future.

Wealth of Information
Wylie took time out of his busy schedule to give me an overview of SQL. He is awesome! Very informative and knowledgeable in the subject. I really appreciate his very detailed approach to training. After our video conference I had a clearer understanding of SQL, basic and advance queries, terminology and concepts. He gave me a wealth of information! Now I am equipped to begin my journey in mastering SQL, obtaining my certification, etc. I've also had the opportunity work with Wylie in previous positions/projects and he is a pleasure to work with.

Helped me figure out problems in Illinois State Technology Systems
I had the pleasure of working with Wylie Blanchard when he was a technology consultant for a managed care entity in Illinois that was bringing up its systems to report data to the State of Illinois and conduct healthcare analytics. I knew when Wylie contacted me that he had always first thought things through as he was consistently both clear and methodical in his presentation. Wylie was always quick to grasp new information and often times ended up helping me to figure out problems in Illinois state technology systems. His technical skills seemed very strong. He was always very positive and a pleasure to work with. I always enjoyed interacting with him. I highly recommend Wylie.

He communicated effectively with his team, drove motivation and completed deliverables by the deadlines. His character exudes great leadership - he is committed to achieving the goals and success of the company. I highly recommend Wylie on any of his future endeavors.

Look No Further
Wylie Blanchard has an extensive base of knowledge in all things SQL Server, database development and application development. One need look no further than his multiple Microsoft SQL Server designations for proof of his expertise. I view him as a mentor to me. Additionally, Wylie is an outstanding communicator, and I have enjoyed his database and technology speeches in Toastmasters several times.
Confident and Delivered
A situation arose where our department’s audit database had some flaws with it – this caused me to panic a little (because of a project deadline) but Wylie and his team was confident that they could assist us through it – and they delivered!
