B.E. Technology 3/97 – 8/07

President / Project Manager

Details of Project:

Complexity:

A. Involved in the development, design and setup of the Company’s main product called the CANDiBAR. This application provided users with their documents, bookmarks, contacts, shortcuts regardless of what Internet connected device they used. In 1997, this technology did not exist. I was responsible for determining the required technology necessary to develop the project. In 1997, no existing technology was available to develop this project. Everything needed had to be custom designed.

B. Initial development consisted of utilizing a staff of 5 contract developers to create a prototype of the application in VB 5. This allowed us to enhance on key areas of the application but also provided the ability to recognize what difficulties we would experience in the development of the production version.

C. Developed the RFP, SOW, Technical description and architecture of entire project. This proved not only invaluable to the Development team but also to the Legal team in securing the Patents on all our technology. The company was awarded the following Patent based upon this work:

Computer Diskette with Insertable Multi-Piece Media

Patent No: 6,122,145

Patent No: 6,449,124

Computer Interface Method and Apparatus with Targeted Advertising

Patent No: 6,141,010

Patent No: 6,628,314

Patent No: 6,771,290

Patent No: 7,366,996

Patent No: 7,685,537

Patent No: 8,549,410

Patent No: 8,549,411

Patent No: 8,769,440

F.Final Development of the product was awarded to an Oracle Partner, which had extensive experience in developing applications based upon Oracle technology. However, their ability to meet scheduled deadlines became so abysmal that I had to pull the project, mid-development, and award it to the runner-up company. This decision was analyzed in great detail, since this would require taking an incomplete application, mid-development, and transfer it to a completely new set of developers. This required extensive work with the new company and developers in order to get them up to speed as quickly as possible about the concept of the application, the architecture of the application, and the current status of the code that had been developed.

Nature and Type:

I.Responsible for coordinating the project schedules, which required

interaction with the users to establish project dates and delivery schedules.

J.Designed the architecture of the entire network application, determining what

key areas were necessary to insure product usage

K.Set up coding standards and documentation standards to be followed during

concept and development phase.

L.Performed extensive unit testing and integrated testing and monitored the bug

fixes performed by team members.

G.Developed Bug report, an in-house system designed to keep track of the bugs that occurred during testing by the quality assurance department.

Resource Management:

At the highpoint of development, I led a team of 15 developers, both internal and external developers, developing the product using VB 5 & 6, C++ and SQL Server 6, Oracle 8i, and various third-party component vendors.

Budget Managed:

Product development had a budget of three million dollars. The product was completed under budget.

Vendor/Supplier Management:

Functioned as the primary interface between the programming group, patent attorneys, and investor group insuring design ideas were understood, designed and implemented

Change Management:

Due to the complexity of the technology developed and in spite of the initial developmental model created, the programmers were met with tremendous obstacles which some proved to be dead ends. This required change management to create alternative ways to either develop similar processes or completely new alternative technologies. There were times which developers, investors, or I conceived new enhancements which had to be determined whether they could be implemented without incurring expensive delays to the overall project.

Technical Environment:

Technologies used include ASP, VB 5 & 6, Java, Oracle 8i Server, MS Project 98 & 2000

Accomplishments:

Five Patents were awarded based upon the Technical description and architecture of entire project I developed.

The product was completed.

SAIC/Louisiana State Health Department 10/03- 5/05 Project Manager/Lead Developer

Details of Project:

Complexity:

A. The State of Louisiana’s Health Department had decided that it had an IT crisis on its hands. Existing Staff members had resigned leaving the department with no access to databases or applications. The current applications were developed via a vendor whose capabilities were questionable. The Department decided to outsource all application development work. This was award to SAIC. SAIC, in turn subbed the work to ASI. I was recruited by ASI to be the Lead Developer/Project Manager of a group of eight developers from three different companies.

B. Initial development began with a review of existing application structure and an understanding of business process for the Department of Health. Since the department was completely reliant upon grants, the order of application development was determined upon which group within the department received a grant. This was very cumbersome since logic would have decided a proper candidate based upon the technology required and how that fit into the overall progress of the architecture. This required me to develop a architecture based upon the known applications to be developed and designed in a way that if any new area came in that it somehow could be joined into the existing architecture.

C. Since there were so many applications requiring redesign, each developer was required to write his own technical description and design document of his application assigned. Once written, I would review it to insure it conformed to my architecture design and then present it to my contact within SAIC. Once I had received their approval, a meeting was scheduled to present the design documents to the State Health Department leaders. Once they approved, a meeting was scheduled with the actual group who used the application and with their approval, the developer could then begin work on the new application. Applications ranged in size from just a few users to the entire Health Department.

Nature and Type:

A. Responsible for coordinating the project schedules, which required

interaction with the users to establish project dates and delivery schedules.

B. Designed the architecture of the network application, determining what

key areas were common among known applications.

C. Set up coding standards and documentation standards to be followed during

development phase.

D. Developed Bug report, an in-house system designed to keep track of the

bugs that occurred during testing by the quality assurance department.

Resource Management:

At the highpoint of development, I led a team of 8 developers, from three different companies, developing various applications using Java Struts on the front end with an Oracle 9i database. Legacy code was written using ASP and Access.

Budget Managed:

Product development’s budget was based upon grants received. This was very difficult since grant money can quit as quickly as received. In spite of best attempts to develop in an orderly process, there were many starts and stops of application development. The entire project had an estimated budget of 20 Million Dollars but that number was based upon a compilation of expected grants for the Department of Health.

Vendor/Supplier Management:

I functioned as the primary interface between the programming group, SAIC, and the Health Department insuring design ideas were understood, documented, accepted by all parties and developed within the given deadline.

Change Management:

Due to the numerous applications and the grant problems, change management was the norm not the exception. Many Grants were awarded based upon the application’s ability to deliver key data required to receive the grant. The scope of the data required constantly changed throughout the development process.

Technical Environment:

Technologies used include Java Struts, Eclipse, JSP, Oracle 9i SERVER, MS Project 2000, ASP, and Oracle Single Sign-on LDAP directory, TOAD, and MSSQL

Accomplishments:

All applications developed were within budget amounts.

Application development was brought to standard never before attained within

the State Health Department.

The Department of Health began to think of the IT department as a friend

rather than an enemy as it had in the past.
