- Successful collaboration with various teams within Confidential provided a challenge yet rewarding experience.
- Parallel to these activities, coordination, planning and delivery culminated a successful disaster recovery (DR) exercise.
- Designed, developed, tested and implemented (full SDLC) an internal internal support application using dynamic SQL.
- The application provided the control to dynamically activate/deactivate data validations without code modifications. Table meta data, view declarations and dynamic SQL were the cornerstones of the design. The design was such that business rules and validations could be activated (or deactivated) independently of another.
- There was no application downtime when a data validation or business rule was not performing correctly.
- Only that validation or rule was taken out of service. Release management efficiencies were gained with this design approach.
- Senior application/database developer for Corporate Marketing intranet website. Website manages all internal product information. The web components being Oracle DBMS, Oracle WebDB and Oracle PL/SQL packages/procedures/triggers.
- Addressed data integrity concerns with the implementation database constraints, (primary key/foreign keys), versus existing programming methodology.
- Maintained pre - existing Oracle PL/SQL package that housed application software. Additional packages were designed and implemented to modularize the software.
- Partnered with third-party vendor, Interwoven, to interface their content management product, TeamSite with website. Designed and implemented Perl scripts to process content in and out of the Oracle database. Oracle triggers were used to insulate vendor software from production tables.
- Designed and implemented a full cycle refresh process using Oracle PL/SQL package. Process provided the mechanism to push/pull data to/from the TeamSite data repository. XML was the data exchange format used.
- Designed and implemented process using Oracle PL/SQL package to extract data into XML format used to prototype Lotus Notes Workflow capabilities.
- Converted Oracle WebDB intranet website to MacroMedia ColdFusion. Conversion was intermediary step in the migration path to IBM WebSphere.
