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.
Excellent SQL Saturday presentation
I attended the presentation Wylie did for SQL Saturday - Kansas City. It was very organized and to the point training on how to analyze SQL Server data with MS PowerPivot. I left with the impression that I could use what I learned from the presentation at my job as a Data Analyst. Also Wylie has a very engaging personality that made it even more enjoyable.
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.
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.

Excellent SQL Presentation
I recently attended Wylie’s presentation, SQL Server's Change Data Capture. Wylie gave an excellent presentation on how and why to use CDC. Wylie is a very good presenter and uses humor while communicating a technical topic. Looking forward to getting the test scripts he used. I highly recommend Wylie if someone is interested in a SQL Server presentation.
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.
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.
