SUMMARY:

  • I am working as a contract employee for a major steel producer to help in an Oracle ERP implementation.
  • The project I am responsible for is to take the Extracted Order file from the Oracle ERP implementation, Translate using Software AG Natural/SQL Language and Load to the legacy IBM DB2 database.
  • This project was originally thought to need 2 USS employees as well as 4 contract employees.
  • I wrote all the interface modules (approx... 50) necessary to accomplish the Translate and Load tasks.
  • During this implementation it was necessary to wait nearly a year for the Oracle ERP team to produce the Extract file. All that was provided to me to be used in the code design phase was the purposed Interface Document.
  • As with most large implementations this proved to require a few iterations and required that I do as many redesigns of the Natural code for the project.
  • Also during this year there were 700+ legacy modules needing changes and I did 80+ percent of those changes.
  • Member of a dynamic, efficient, effective growth oriented team for a major discount tool retailer for 19 years.
  • The team developed, implemented and refined a growth plan to take the company from a niche tool retailer to dominate the discount tool business.
  • We grew the company from strictly a catalog retailer to include 330 retail locations and a successful internet business.
  • I supervised 50 employees with 5 direct report managers. I worked directly with all departments on IT and non IT related projects.
