Ed Cadwallader


I launched Roots in 2008 because I wanted to help school leaders spend less time collecting and manually processing data and more of it helping staff and students reach their potential. Since then I've worked with schools, MIS companies and multi academy trusts to automate their data flows, boost collaboration and produce interactive dashboards using Microsoft Power BI

I am also an expert in Bromcom and Arbor MIS systems (with some lingering memories of SIMS) and have connected both cloud systems to SQL data warehouses via their APIs. I can manage and optimize SQL databases as well as ETL processes using SSIS and Power Query.

I’ve worked in the education sector all my life because I’m passionate about improving schools. If you think your organisation’s use of data could improve and you want to change it for the benefit of staff and students, please contact me - I'd love to help.
