Confidential, Wilmington, DE
- I got the most complicated part of the conversion and load process.
- I also took it upon myself to learn the database in order for me to get things done on my own and finish all my tasks correctly and on time.
- There were two DB2 programs originally for the procedure codes, ICD9 diagnosis codes and modifier codes.
- Revenue code was added later and I came up with a program to do the conversion and load for revenue codes in one day.
- The running of the test conversion and load process was assigned to someone else but I took it upon myself to troubleshoot any issues that came up almost every time we did the test conversion and load. Just to reiterate, it was not my job to do the troubleshooting.
- I put in a good amount of extra time were logged to get this project done.
- I took over the programs assigned to a co - worker in order to finish the project on time.
- I showed a co-worker ‘the ropes’ so he can code his Confidential programs and gave him the JCL to unit test them.
- I asked if I can help out with this project and worked on 4 jobs. Three of them worked without any problems and one had a JCL error but was fixed right away during the release.
- All file outputs from these jobs came out correct.
- Again, I took over a co-worker's jobs for this project. I originally was supposed to do two jobs but ended up with four.
- I was assigned this project to me and I basically did almost everything. I did the testing, documentation, coordination with the DBAs and filling out the SARA requests.
- Also helped co-workers troubleshoot their testing.
- There were MQTs assigned to a co-worker but he had to work on the affiliation project so I took over those that were assigned to him.
- I was given a change request on 6/20 and had to finish by 6/21.
- I basically took over this project from a co-worker. The requirements had to be revised to include checking for Confidential parentage and inheritance.
- This was not anticipated when the original requirements were written and was only discovered after the unit test I conducted.
- I am learning more about Confidential to come up with the right code to make sure the delete programs work.
- I monitored the conversion and load part of the release. I have to again say here that this is not assigned to me.
- I did SPUFIs and checked the output from the load jobs to make sure the process worked correctly.
- I checked for any possible issues before the jobs ran and fixed them in order to move things along faster.
- I volunteered to be on call on Monday because there were daily jobs that were running for the first time that night.
- I was not required to be on call but because it was only Tracey Welch working that night, I went on call as well.
- There were issues with some of the jobs and I fixed one of the jobs.
- Revamped a process called Flex Bridge that processes HRA and HSA members for Confidential .
- Streamlined the process and removed all the bugs in the system resulting in less manual work for the business users.
- Implemented the government mandated Civil Union project in the membership system.
- Same sex partners can now be enrolled with equal benefits as traditional couples.
- Due to lack of resources, this is a project for three persons that I worked on by myself.
- Created the Agent Broker reporting system to provide senior management the ability to review loss ratio reporting and analysis for individual business by Broker/Agent. With this reporting system in place, Actuarial is now able to gather this information.
