Confidential,Des Peres, MO October 2011 – Till Date
Application Support Admin/Developer

Confidential,is the largest telecom operator in U.S.A. AT&T designed a Data Management Tool (DMT), which assists AT&T with engineering record quality check, error identification and data cleanup efforts. The tool’s objective is to perform both initial cleanups and sustaining data maintenance in the future. Once the data is cleansed, it is anticipated to directly contribute to improved functionality and automation, resulting in cost savings. As a part of the DMT process, the ETL application Datastage was used to pull data from the GCOMM application. As a part of ETL process,

  • The wire centers in the current batch cycle for DMT processing according to region is updated and scheduled for GCOMM tools.
  • Then the data is staged for individual feature types into DMT. The data staged for GCOMM into DMT is held in the temporary tables. These tables are truncated at the beginning of data load. Then GCOMM key attribute data is copied to these temporary tables.
    • After the initial staging process, current row is expired and new row will be created if any key change values are detected by comparing the data from stage tables with the data in history tables. History tables are used to track the attribute changes of a feature over time.
    • For each feature, the key attribute values will be compared against business rules and if any discrepancy is detected, an error will be created or updated with an appropriate reason and status code.
    • The detected errors will be autocorrected wherever possible and posted back to GCOMM.
