Key Achievements

IRS...handles multiple applications under the CICS, DB2, SYSK Reporting applications which are just a few to name. These applications require very detail review of software before the applications were moved using SCLM to the QA/prod environment for migration they were dependent on other applications movements to those QA/ prod environment before they could move. Therefore this requires great communication with my co-workers, Qa testers and development team to make sure everything was completed successfully on timely bases.

Bell Atlantic…learned new migration tool called Pegasus for configuration management and procedures in a timely fashion 30 days and became main on call person that was in charge of the Billing Legacy system. This meant being on call 7/24 for all the application which were around 10 or more applications under the Billing Legacy system. Also handle change management process on weekly bases to resolve any problems or identify new problems.

MCI…Multiple Data center split (Rockville Split) had a project were it was at one main data center in the DC area and we had to split the applications to another data center located in Rockville. This entailed using a utility to copy the application to the new data center data base. There were over 20 application and hundreds of jobs for those applications. This project took several months with working in a team environment but each person assigns several applications to move. This took long hours and weekends to accomplish this project. The project was able to help the company to be able to run multiple applications and the process without slowing up the process.
