Specialist – System Development

Confidential – OLIP

Roles, Responsibilities and Accomplishments

  • A major project developed in Java, J2EE, JSP, JS, AJAX and Struts to present various complex reports to the users with advanced filtering/sorting and grouping functionality. They serve as a good value addition especially to the big customers who want to analyze their bills. This tool also has visual representation of some high level reports which are developed in Adobe Flex.
  • These reports are at different levels; user id, summary account, billed account, single invoice date and range of invoice date. Though they look up several billion records in the table and bring more than 6000 records in the frontend, we managed to display them in less than 30 seconds.
  • Provided download and schedule functionality for reports with huge data.
  • Im plemented staging concepts for pagination, filtering and sorting. This helps to reduce the processing time for these actions.
  • Enforced Agile Methodology in few tasks and successfully accomplished the goal.
  • Represented the team and presented the team accomplishments in various skip level meetings.
