FIM (Federated Identity Management) is used for authentication and SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) connectivity is used to establish connectivity between Banks over HTTPS.

Responsibilities:

  • Collected/translated business requirements into design and provide the team. Both SOAP and REST WebService were developed which were deployed on Blade servers, facilitating vertical scalability and IBM DatapowerXI50 were used as WebService endpoints.
  • Maven is used for integrate different module with Jenkins as auto build tool.
  • One of the major project is a SOAP based web application for Confidential, which included integration of third party Banks and RSA as authenticator.
  • As ESB layer between web services, IBM Datapower box was used.

Software Architect

Technologies Used: Spring Framework 3.2, Oracle 11g, IBM Websphere 7.0, Ajax, JavaScript, REST Web Services, SOAP Web Services (both JAX-WS & JAX-RPC) on Unix environment. LDAP for authentication and authorization over HTTPS.

Responsibilities:

  • As a part of R & D department; two projects were handled. One is enhancement of legacy product and the other is a green-field project based on new architecture based on SOA.
  • As a part of architect group, need to vet different technologies and its architecture for the new product which is getting developed.
  • After understanding the Conceptual and logical diagram, right technology for each of the components had to be identified.
  • In this process, different technologies had to be vetted by researching and developing Proof-Of-Concepts to find its attributes like complexity, performance, scalability, licensing, support, learning curve, etc.
  • Once POC is complete, to come to a final conclusion, it needs to be presented before team for a brain storming session.

IT Consultant

Responsibilities:

  • My role was to review code and test cases, drive the team in technical issues and manage the project to its deployment and closure.

Confidential

Consultant Architect

Responsibilities:

  • Designed and involved in the development of Data Synchronization module which is a core part of product.
  • Swing was used as UI and core java was used as components.
  • Real time data synchronization was managed even during intermittent network connectivity.
  • Multiple threads were used to reduce data transmission latency.
  • Since server is on PHP and client is on Java, client side app used RESTful protocol (JSON) to exchange data.
  • I developed Java components to distribute data to multiple MYSql databases at server side.
  • These data were sent back to client as AES encrypted files. Application is secured by user login passwords, which were MD5 encrypted and stored in local SQLite database.
  • To support different makes of thermal printers, a customized component was developed to replace the device drivers.
  • UI developed in Swing allowed to store Unicode instructions in SQLite local database.
  • To configure a device, its Unicode instruction needs to be keyed into application.
  • This gave the ability to connect almost any thermal printers to the device.

Environment: Java for data publishing components, Unix is the OS at server side, PHP for server side development, MySQL as database. Client terminal used Ubuntu (Linux based) as OS, Java for client side development, SQLite as database. CVS was used as code versioning tool.

Confidential, San Jose, CA

Solution Architect

Responsibilities:

  • Since the project was outsourced to offshore, real time interaction between the client and development team was challenging and critical.
  • For architecting and UI re-designing, client had rolled out a separate onshore team for the project.
  • My role was to work with them to discuss the flow and identify any gaps in the UI and conveying the ideas back to the offshore development team.
  • Since the development was on Agile model, Scrum meetings were to be attended and keep management updated.
  • Had to monitor development progress and identify risks and mitigate it.
  • A close interaction between onshore and offshore was required.
  • Once the flow and design were finalized, went back to offshore, to work along with development team.
  • Application bandwidth usage was tested and controlled using WireShark, since network may not be strong or stable.

Environment: Windows was development environment with iOS simulator, MagicDraw for developing UML diagrams, WireShark for testing network bandwidth usage, iOS and ObjectiveC on iPhone devices, SQLite as its database and iPhone devices. CVS was used as code versioning tool.

Solution Architect

Responsibilities:

  • Analyzed the requirement, architected high level flow of application, identified software and hardware to be used and prepared UML diagram, finalized deployment configuration considering the scalability and manageability of the product, estimated the time required and created a project plan in MS-Project.
  • Identified risks and its mitigation. SOA model was used to design components.
  • Led the team in development and testing, and finally deployed the beta version on Amazon EC2 cloud environment.
  • REST webservice were designed to consume it in hand-held devices like iPad, iPhone etc.
  • For scalability, AWS environment were chosen.
  • Deployed it on two server on a cluster for high availability.
  • Vertical scalability was considered, so both CPU, memory were configured to scale up and down as required.

Environment: Groovy/Grails and Ajax were used for server side development, Unix is the OS for the server, ObjectiveC is used for iPad clients, EC2 Cloud as the server environment, Tomcat as the WebServer and MySQL as the database. CVS was used as code versioning tool and Jira as defect tracking tool.

Confidential, Richfield, MN

Technical Lead

Responsibilities:

  • When the requirement comes, needs to analyze the requests and design the flow of the application.
  • Calculate and provide ETC for the task according to the resource availability.
  • Later getting involved with the team in development, reviewing and testing the code.
  • Raise Change control request and get it approved.
  • Assist implementation along with the team.
  • In the existing application, file transfer failed at-least once in a day, thus bringing monthly trouble ticket count to 25.
  • The flow of application was redesigned and developed the code.
  • Thread concept were introduced to facilitate simultaneous file transfer.
  • This resulted in parallel file transfers thus bringing down file transfer time considerably.
  • Analyzed the nature of file transfer error occurred in existing application.
  • Proposed an alternate flow for the exception, which enabled the application to be resilient.
  • This brought down the trouble ticket count to zero.

Environment: Application functioned on Unix environment, Core Java was used to develop application, Tivoli was scheduled for invoking application, Unix Shell Script was developed to start the application

Confidential, Seattle, WA

Technical Lead

Responsibilities:

  • Requirements coming from applications need to be analyzed for the feasibility. If feasible, need to estimate the task involved, identify and mitigate any risks, design the flow of application and get the development done.
  • The code and test cases needs to be reviewed before the application went for QA.
  • Once QA has certified it, need to raise Change Control for implementation. Once it is approved, need to assist production control team to implement it.
  • Change control happened once in a month and system needs to be up by 24/7 on all 365 days. So implementing the changes without interruption was critical.
  • I was involved in stage-by-stage implementation.
  • Implementation involved re-routing of traffic to West zone before implementing it on East zone, and then re-routing traffic to East zone before implementing it on West zone.
  • Since the traffic was heavy, least traffic time was selected for implementation.
  • Application could record an uptime of 99.9%.

Environment: Unix was the application environment, Java, BEA WebLogic Servers, Spring, Hibernate, Load Balancers, Routers, Oracle database, MQSeries Server. ClearCase was used as code repository tool and ClearQuest was used as defect tracking tool.
