WORK EXPERIENCE


Bank of America
Bank of America's Global Government Banking group provides special banking services for the federal government. I worked as a consultant with this group over a three year period to build three applications as well as implement numerous enhancements. Two of the applications provided online banking functionality and the third application manages deposits made by government agencies that must be forwarded to the treasury. I play two major roles in the group. My first role was to establish a use case driven analysis and design process to be used on all the groups projects. My second role was help establish an application framework for use with Delphi, VisiBroker (CORBA), and Oracle. The framework allows business objects to be created to encapsulate business rules and services. The framework also provides classes for security, audit, and database connection pooling. During my time with the group I made a major contribution to achieving the following accomplishments:

  • Established use case driven analysis and design process used to complete 10 projects over a three year period.
  • Developed and deployed three applications. Bankruptcy and US Courts were rewrites of existing applications and USAMM was a new application.
  • Completed seven enhancement projects after initial deployments.
  • Deployed first three tier application.
  • Developed application framework used by all three applications.
Organized Bankruptcy and US Courts to use inheritance to share 80 percent of the functionality that is common rather than the copy/paste approach used previously.



JC Penney
Worked with JC Penney on a four-month effort to conduct analysis and design activities for a new store inventory system. The new inventory system will replace several legacy mainframe systems and will be developed in Java using MS SQL Server and DB2 for persistent storage. Facilitated analysis and design activities. These activities included Use Case Analysis, Robustness Analysis, Domain Object Modeling, Interaction Modeling, and Object to Relational Mapping.

Alliance, formerly known as Business Services, developed and is now supporting a system which provides Sales, Customer Service, and Billing functionality to USSB. Primary responsibilities involve enhancement of the Customer Service Application and support of 4 telemarketing centers which use the application.

EDS, Corporate Information Systems
Participation in the development of a corporate administrative system designed to streamline administrative tasks.

Once the system was implemented, moved to team leader responsible for one additional subsystem, Organizations. My last assignment with CIS was as lead developer for the new Transitions subsystem.
