CNA Insurance
Margaret Wittlinger
Sr. Infrastructure Project Manager

Ken is one of the most, if not THE most talented database engineers I have ever encountered. He possesses a strong work ethic, is able to easily break down complex problems into manageable parts rapidly, demonstrates amazing attention to detail, and is patient with lesser skilled / more junior team members. Perhaps most importantly, he is willing to mentor and share his vast knowledge of SQL databases and create teachable moments in a very diplomatic way, which makes the entire project team stronger. Any company that has engaged Ken to provide db services will easily receive more than double a return on the investment.”

CapGemini North America
Fabio de Sant’Anna
Principal at Capgemini

“Highly recommended SQL Server Expert. Very competent and easy to work with, very committed and excellent team player. Ken worked for me on a complex stability remediation of the 2 most important policy admin systems of the most critical LOB of a P&C Insurance company. He was there from the initial assessment to figure out problems and recommendations to the end of the remediation and stabilization. Ken was the most critical resource in this project which upgraded SQL2005 to SQL2014, remediated a number of stored procedures, merged database instances, optimized indexes and database settings, to name a few of the actions. These old systems started in a state of outages and too many deadlocks and finished in a state of no outages, much reduced deadlocks and improved response time. “

Senior IT Economist, Information Technology Division, Chief Information Officer Branch, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

“I have found the Koza IT Services team to be highly reliable contractors in both a technical and professional sense. They have both been committed to our goals for the project, and they were both quickly effective in working with other staff and contractors on the team. Some aspects of our project are complex and they were keen to learn. Sometimes our project took unexpected turns, and we found them relaxed about adapting to circumstances. We located Koza through an Internet search related to specific knowledge and skills in February 2009. Needless to say, we’ll be happy to have them continue in our project, and we’re also pleased to recommend them.”

He makes the complex issues seem easier and more manageable.”
