  • Provided guidance to developers.   Acted as a mentor and a facilitator in removing obstacles, both procedural and technical.
  • Developed and executed a project plan. Stabilized project delivery through defect management process. 

Security Enhancement

  • Led a technical assessment team in identifying a set of Facets components impacted by a new security requirement.
  • Created a complete remediation plan, which included detail technical designs.
  • Developed a strategy to revise a set of Facets stored procedures, so that they are forward upgradeable and meet hosting standards.
  • Led a multinational development team throughout the remediation process.
  • Coordinated implementation of deliverables and the revised upgrade process.

Custom Accumulator Import
