Highlights of some Advanced TranTech’s projects include:
Lending Business Unit, Confidential, Vienna, Virginia:
Confidential is one of the key lead architects/developers on several high profile projects at Navy Federal. Some of the projects that he is currently involved in are as follows:
Project: UAD Debit Card Limit
The objective of this project is to integrate the VISA’s debit card limit Web Services seamlessly into the Navy Federal’s internal system to be used by an internal application. Confidential has led the Navy Federal SOA service specification and as well as collaborated with VISA on their debit card services specification. He has designed and implemented the security framework where both systems use both PKI mutual authentication and WS-Security to provide a multi-layer security to secure the communication between Navy Federal and VISA systems over the internet. Confidential has implemented a Datapower WS-Proxy as a security gateway between the two systems and implemented a JAX-WS service consumer code to interface with the Datapower WS-Proxy seamlessly for an internal application. He has led many troubleshooting sessions with the VISA’s entire team to ensure VISA is successful in making this pilot program a success for Navy Federal. This project has become a foundation for many other projects to build on.
Project: ALWS System Rewrite
The objective of this project is to replace a legacy ALWS internal system that is too brittle to use and too obsolescent to be supported. As a part of this evaluation, there were four alternatives put forth for the team to evaluate: a solution build on Lotus Note platform, a solution build on .Net, a solution build on Java, and a COTS solution provided by FISERV. Confidential was asked to put together a design and an estimate using the Java technology. The solution that Confidential put together encompasses using a modern n-tier architecture build on a modern J2EE platform (leveraging Navy Federal existing technology investment in IBM Websphere, ESB, DataPower, and IBM HostBridge) that will leverage existing Navy Federal’s SOA services assets and data warehouse (Teradata and Business Object) system to rapidly build capabilities to meet/exceed functionalities provided by the legacy ALWS system. In the end, the team chose Confidential ’s solution over others for the overall cost and technical approaches.
Project: Scanned Deposit
The objective of this project is to enhance an existing online Scan Deposit system to mitigate/prevent potential fraud that existed. Confidential was instrumental in leading the design and development of the system interfaces and service specifications needed for the existing system architecture that includes a Datapower appliance, the J2EE middleware, and the legacy mainframe system to support the enhancement. He single handedly revived the project that was stale and out of synch for over a period of three years with the production system, Dimension, and not to mention the Navy Federal life cycle development process. Under an extremely aggressive schedule, he has been able to quickly implement the update to the Java middleware component and as well as the DataPower WS-Proxy for the enhancement and rolled into production. The interfaces between the external trading partner system (FISERV) and Navy Federal is complex and Confidential has been instrumental in collaborating with FISERV to make this enhancement a success.
The objective of this project is to provide members the ability to digitally sign their promissory notes online for all loan product types. Confidential has led the design and development of three major online applications that are used by both members and internal member service representative for this effort. The team uses an Agile development process, using Rally to facilitate the SCRUM and sprints. The system has recently gone live and Navy Federal members now have the ability to digitally sign their promissory notes seamlessly for loans which they apply online. This project has been a smashing success with an extremely high rate of members opting to digitally sign their promissory notes online, rather than opting for paper-based promissory notes. This is a major milestone for Navy Federal, as this new capability will not only provide banking convenience to members who apply for loans online, but will give Navy Federal a significant cost saving in terms of the reduction of overall costs to support paper-based promissory notes. The phase 1 of eProm has recently gone live and it is overwhelming successful with a 99% rate of members opting to digitally sign their signature for loans that they apply online. The project uses a gamut of technologies and tools, which include, but not limited to: IBM ESB, IBM Datapower, IBM Websphere, DB2, Hibernate, Openface, Openface, JQuery, DOJO, HTML, CSS, IBM RAD, Splunk, F5, HTTPWatch, Findbugs, HP Fortify, JUnit, Dimension, SVN, Maven, Selenium, TeraData, Business Object, IBM Hostbridge, etc.
