Project Title: SHAIR, May 2008 to Jun 2008
Designation: Technical Lead

Project Details:
One of Chrysler’s application is SHAIR (Shared Application and Infrastructure Repository) .It is a data hub and data warehouse of IT support systems.
The hub functionality enables the various IT support system to exchange data between them using existing processes, for example the application ID ( i.e AMS ID) is defined and maintained by the application owner in AMS and all related information is made available to consuming systems such as IPR, ECC, DCCS, TTTS, etc. , MSTS use the IPR reference number which provide the association between the host and the AMS ID, the infrastructure Discovery associate the host to the installed products and configured instances on the host, and so on. SHAIR consume data using two primary tools:
Custom Lotus Notes agents for Domino based applications ETL for all supported data sources supported by ETL, currently the following are being accessed (ODBC to UDB, DB2 and Sybase, and CSV files), an in process request for XML.
The data warehouse functionality in SHAIR includes relevant data from several systems, that provides custom reports and ad hoc query framework, the integration is ongoing the following is a list of the IT support systems contributing to SHAIR (AMS, IPR, ECC, Einfo, Auto Discovery, MSTS, CSS, DNS, Tech Portal, SeRV)

Responsibilities:

  • Requirement Gathering – Gathering and Analyzing the business requirements quoted by client and documenting them.

Project Title: Confidential,Jul 2007 to Jan 2008
Designation: Technical Lead

Project Details:
IPATS (Investment Planning and Tracking System) is an application used for tracking of activities such as capital forecasting, authorizing capital expenditure and restricting capital expenditure to authorized levels. A key factor of IPATS is it enables better communication between the different groups IPATS has three business tiers driving the application – Platform Group,
Operating Group and Spending Location. The application ensures a mechanism of transfer of funds and tracking the expenditures between these groups.
Analysis Reports form an important part of IPATS. Reporting access is required to all the above groups of IPATS users i.e. Platform, Operating Group and Spending Location. These reports can be briefly categorized into Absolute Reporting and Variance Reporting.
The project work included understanding the information required in the analysis reports, designing the data warehouse / data mart so as to facilitate these reports, developing ETL components to load these data stores, Designing a Business Objects Universe and developing reports that can run on this universe. As a special requirement, the Business Objects Universe had to be robust enough to also enable the users to perform specialized ad-hoc queries not summarized in the above reports.

Responsibilities:

  • Analyzing client requirements and Creating Technical Specification DocumentsAnalyzing the requirements quoted by client and documenting them
  • Establish load strategies and error correction methodologies: Carrying out a Data Quality Analysis and highlight business / IT processes to improve it

Project Title: VMDM, Feb 2007 to Jun 2007
Designation: Sr. Data Stage Developer

Project Details:
VMDM stands for Vehicle Mix and Demand Management. This is used to produce various reports comparing the forecasting data and the actual data. Based on that the Demand is calculated and hence the production, sales etc are controlled.
There are various reports generated from VMDM data as below:
Mix Consensus Report (Daily): Dealer Bank Order (11pm)
New Day Celebration Report (Daily)
PCBS (Price Class Body Style) Report (Monthly)
Polk Report (Monthly – 2nd week of every month):
The actual data comes from the External agency (Registration Office: Sales & Lease).The data comes at 9am and report is generated at 5pm of the same day
Polk sends the file and then VMDM ftps that data file to its own production server, then loading of MART tables is started.
Once loading completes, a manual validation (firing select query to count the number of loaded records and comparing with the actual no of records present in the file) is done.
Every year the Polk team sends a doc containing the time of sending the Polk data every month. Based on that they will send their data. It may vary.
