PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Confidential

Websphere Consultant

Responsibilities:

  • Provider Information Platform (PIP) is a centralized system to maintain healthcare provider’s information including contract details and demographic data. The downstream systems maintain provider demographic data and contract information. Since all these systems are interrelated, any change in provider record in PIP needs to be pushed to all other subsystems.
  • The PIP system was to be replaced by a vendor product, Provider Information Management System (PIMS).
  • In the original system (PIP), the middleware developed in Websphere Message Broker handled the flow of messages to the downstream systems. But with PIMS, the role performed by WMB was to be replaced by Websphere Process Server.
  • Requirement gathering, analysis, design of WPS integrations
  • Involved in various technical meetings with technical architect and SAs to understand the existing WMB interfaces and determine an optimal solution to migrate to WPS. Prepared the flow functionality documents for the existing WMB message flows.
  • Developed wsdls, xsds, business processes, mediations, EIS adapters and related SCA components for the WPS functionality.
  • Identified and developed a common java module inside WPS to integrate with the common logging application, EAS used across the organization.
  • Maintenance and support for the existing WMB functionality. Activities included changes in the message flow nodes, ESQLs, message sets, debugging problems with the queue configurations and fixing issues in production as when they arise.
  • Developed best practices, naming and coding standards documents to be followed during development.
  • Wrote detailed technical design documents on various integrations patterns.

Design Lead and Senior Developer

Responsibilities:

  • The project was about integrating applications in the Universal Decision Engine. The decision engine has a fleet of applications which interacts to achieve credit decisioning. The applications are required to be highly scalable, robust and nimble. The credit card application decision engine is consumed by both the Banking Centre and the E-Comm space and includes irresolute strategies which have to be changed with impulsive market conditions.
  • The application interacts with downstream applications to collect information from customer depending on the segments they belong to, compute the Fico Score and Ability To Pay, gather Customer Relationship data, Credit Bureau data and Employment History and consolidates and sends them to the decision engine which decides to Approve, Reject or Defer the application or offer any Counter-Offers.
  • Requirements gathering and brain-storming of how the changes can be implemented with little impact on the dependent applications. Prepared the complete technical design documents accordingly.
  • Developed short running Business Processes, Mediations, Orchestrations, Business Objects, EIS bindings (JDBC Adapter), MQ Bindings, Web service bindings, WSDL, XMLs to integrate multiple multi-platform applications to gather all required data for the decisioning.
  • Persist the data gathered from the various applications and post decisioning data in the Oracle database.
  • The decisioning strategies kept changing very frequently and the integration services had to be changed to accommodate the changes and also ensure the calling systems are also updated accordingly. This majorly included changes in interfaces at both producing and consuming ends, associated XSD, code changes within the java modules, WPS service modules and changes in the database.
  • Minor releases happened once every month (BAU release) and major releases once in a quarter.
  • Debugging of production issues with quick turnaround times especially in the E-Comm space.
  • Maintain and enhance a scheduled Autosys job to extract the persisted data from the database and send them to downstream reporting system daily.
  • Handling production installs and post release technical validations.
