Major Responsibilities:

Handling multiple projects simultaneously helped me learn time-management skills and leadership skills.

Developed many fully automated processes with a perfect blend of ETL Informatica, UNIX, Oracle PL/SQL, Greenplum, Perl and Spotfire which in turn saved huge amount of time and efforts of time-critical resources.

Value Innovation: By using one complex ETL mapping in loop, a complete SAS code of 5000+ lines was decommissioned. Also, reducing the run-time from 20 hours to 5 hours.

Design the project for best possible dynamic solution to handle frequently changing requirements.

Prepare the high level and detailed design document for project.

Develop Informatica code (Simple and complex) based on requirements.

Optimization and Automation of ETL processes.

Detailed unit/integration testing.

Different types of projects:

Agile methodology Project

Zero touch fully automated process eradicating manual efforts which is helpful in critical monthly, quarterly and yearly runs.

Dynamic parameter files driven by oracle tables using shell scripting.

Estimate project plan considering downstream applications and other modules.

Develop and design Informatica mappings and workflows based on requirements.

Optimization and Automation of ETL processes.

Single Resource Development Project: Reconciliation of rates from Admin system to Valuation system using ETL (Informatica), Oracle and Perl. Perl was a new skillset that I learnt myself for this project.

Enhancement Project: Re-write and re-design existing SAS code in ETL Informatica. Reducing the turnaround time to 5 hours from 20 hours. Also, complete automation significantly reduced manual efforts.

Enhancement and Production Support:

Production support of 50+ applications involving monitoring and resolution of production incidents within SLA.

Responsible for very critical Month end/Quarter end runs.

Resolved incidents with quick turnaround time like file missing, ftp issues, unique constraints, server/network issues, database size issue, and invalid file format issue.

Development Project: Designing and developing Enterprise Data Hub which is catering a clean and single version of data to almost 20 sensitive critical applications. Hence, resolving syncing and time-lapse issues for all downstream applications.
