GENERAL: An experienced team-player with background as a DA, DBA, Systems Programmer, Software Engineer, System Conversions, Developer and Systems Analyst. able to work with minimal support and supervision to provide optimal solutions for construction, modification or analysis of complex real-time or batch systems in M/F or PC processors. I apply legacy and new technology quickly in complex situations to support business needs and software engineering requirements. I am comfortable working with development or QA personnel in remote locations. and have excellent written, verbal and presentation skills.

COBOL is used in batch and real-time applications with CICS, IDMS and ADABAS. Assembler language is used as needed. INTERTEST, EDF TSO-TEST, dump-reading and on-line dump facilities are used to debug problems SORT is used extensively as well as JCL, REXX and CLIST. Experience exceeds 10 years in all of these items.

SYSTEM ANALYSIS: Analysis, definition and design with document production for merging two very large, high use little-documented message processing systems, one in PL1 and produced by divergent corporate cultures into a single system written in "C". I dealt with run-time efficiency, data administration issues and project team members in different states.

PC-DEVELOPMENT / SOFTWARE ENGINEERING / CLIENT-SERVER:

Designed and coded a seamless integration of "C" language with ARBITER and CROSSTALK for a Municipal Bond Trading System. This product included the development of a unique Screen I/O Mapping Facility. Wrote CROSSTALK Scripts for Brigham & Women's' EDI Purchasing System.

• ADABAS-NATURAL - In this environment, held sole responsibility over a decade for a major activity system billing millions of dollars monthly to Domestic and Global Customers. I provided daily oversight and ran the monthly billing process. On the first business day of the month there was a 4 hour window to verify that all files were received and correct, that ancillary jobs had completed, to run the billing job and send files to the finance group so they could verify the consolidated financial data. I provided and tested extensions to the billing process. I provided modifications to the Check Processing system to convert from checks being printed and shipped by a vendor to doing it all in-house. The Software A.G. supplied assembler CICS/NATURAL Interface, critical to Bank Functionality, changed with CICS and vendor upgrades. I inserted bank custom code into the new source and verified its functionality. Upgraded a Treasury Work Station product to use HMAC and Triple DES for greater security. Supported domestic and global developers and QA activity. Recently, I spent 1 year training an associate to be my backup.

• IDMS SYSTEMS/DBA/Software Engineering - Installed CA-IDMS software, release modifications and tuning. Wrote user-exit code and DB Procedures. Installed 3rd party software interfaces to IDMS. Design and modification of user to meet user needs including IDD work, standards enforcement, SCHEMA, SUB-SCHEMA and DMCL Work. Changed active databases via PAGE-EXPAND, UNLOAD/RELOAD, RESTRUCTURES, DB-RECOVERY chain and record repairs.

• CICS/IDMS DEVELOPMENT and SYSTEMS -Design Coding and Testing programs in COBOL and Assembler (Command and Macro). Control Table Management, Basic Mapping and Native Mode terminal writes. CICS User exit programming. IDMS functionality in the same environments, plus ADSO and OLQ. Provided a utility that does concurrent multiple CV accesses from a single program.

• DATA-BASE PACKAGE DEVELOPMENT - Created three software packages. The first for IDMS Dictionary area auditing. The second to completely report on the complex structure of the DMCL Table. The third. an IDMS audit package uses only the set-name to derive, in batch, all information on files, areas, sets and records. It then sweeps the area using its own I/O and chain-management to verify pointer integrity and provide data for broken chain repair. Wrote the Lexical Scanner for OLQ (an English-like query language) at Cullinet Corp.

• TOOL-SMITH - A writer of utility routines to provide interfaces between incompatible systems to automate burdensome tasks and eliminate error. For example, a REXX routine to convert XML Data to data that would load into an ACCESS Database; routines to fulfill the requirement, "If we could only I wrote a set of MQ utilities to manage queue records and entities online and in batch. A REXX Exec allowed Financial Executives at BlueCross BlueShield to easily submit complex requests(some 2000 JCL statements) for revenue recovery reporting.

• TEACHING/COACHING -a provider of teaching and coaching in areas listed above under SOFTWARE. Trained other associates in Assembler Language.

EXPERIENCE:

JP MORGANCHASE: one year Contract, fifteen years Direct

COBOL, Assembler, CICS, ADABAS, NATURAL, REXX, ENDEVOR, MQ, MVS, XML

The NATURAL-CICS Interface is a large system-level Assembler program. It also contained "hooks" to interface with the extensive in-house application control system managing critical on-line services used by clients world-wide on a 24x7 basis. New releases of CICS/Natural/Adabas brought a new version of the interface from Software A.G. I had the task to transfer the JPMC code to the new source and see that it worked. I was the sole caretaker for years. Eventually they wanted backup so I trained two others in assembler language and the interface.

I provided changes to Assembler, NATURAL and COBOL programs to extend functionality. I modified a PC-M/F product to add HMAC compression and Triple DES Encryption Security to the communication links.

For twelve years I managed the CCAP Billing system written in NARURAL and COBOL and built upon ADABAS. As clients used functionality, activity records were created and sent batch to the M/F on a strict schedule such as daily, Monday to Friday, First or last day of the month. I monitored the arrival of some 50 files. I designed and built a number of extensions to the "daily" and monthly processing to eliminate frequent errors such as sending the same file twice. There were enough troubles that I wrote a system to remove the data in a file from the Billing Database. Any lateness was investigated and escalated until the file arrived. If the file was malformed, I pursued the data owners until it was corrected and transmitted properly, The Billing Programs ran on the first business day of the month at 5 A.M. If it could not complete by 9 AM upper management got involved. If the Service Agreements for the transmission of the files to the billing application were in question, very senior management was involved. In preparation for the Lowell Ma. facility closure, I trained teams in Chicago and Tampa to manage this billing processes. I worked with Business and QA personnel at home and abroad.

JPMC has a considerable business in sending payments as checks or advises to businesses or individuals. Clients send in files of data which we formatted and send to a Service Bureau for the printing and distribution of the checks and advises. Management decided to bring this operation in-house. I designed and wrote code and JCL to send individual customer's data to our in-house processing as soon as they were converted.

State of Massachusetts (Department of Transitional Assistance

MVS, REXX, Y2K, REVOLVE, COBOL, JCL,VSAM

Y2K conversions in batch COBOL and ADABAS/NATRUAL. Designed and wrote REXX Execs to move all components of an application into a set of libraries for REVOLVE Analysis and remediation. The activity is documented in a detailed report. It moves all JCL and PROC source, all source code for programs (excepting standard utilities) invoked in procs or JCL decks. For programs it moves all copy members, source reports NOTE and ENTRY statements and alters the internal name of the program to match the member name, if needed. All called subprogram source is processed in the same way. PARMLIB Members for every program are discovered and moved as well. A comma-delimited list of components moved and their type is provided for spread-sheet project control. A date compare EXEC determines if any of the elements were changed in production while the remediation was in progress. Installed the REVOLVE Package and did the set-up for analysis. Wrote specialized COBOL routines and provided technical liaison with the DTA Staff.
