Dante Consulting
2003-06-01 - 2013-08-01
Director: Technical Architect Salesforce
As a consultant to many companies, including Fortune 100 companies, I helped architect and implement enterprise applications. Some of these clients included Verizon, Comcast, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and MasterCard. Applications were, by and large, developed using J2EE for deployment on BEA Weblogic and on JBOSS in later years.
  • Pay.gov: My first project at Dante was to help design and implement the Pay.gov J2EE application for the Treasury Department - Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (FRBC). My main focus was on payments using credit cards and ACH.
  • GMS: The GMS system was designed and implemented for Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Tampa, FL. This application was a custom J2EE application that integrated PWC's internal systems with SAP.
  • RMS Desktop: RMS Desktop project was a J2EE application designed and created for Verizon to manage customer accounts.
  • Grandslam: The final large project I participated in with Dante was the creation of the Comcast Grandslam application. This is an enormous undertaking at Comcast to completely rewrite their internal applications and build web services and web based front ends that encompass all of Comcast's customer interfaces.
  • Salesforce Practice: Led team of developers to launch Dante into the Salesforce ecosystem as a new line of business.
Comsys
2002-10-01 - 2003-06-01
J2EE Architect
Complex Bid Management System (CBMS): As a contractor to British Telecom and Computer Sciences Corporation I was responsible for helping to enhance the Complex Bid Management System (CBMS). British Telecom and their clients used the CBMS for tracking the status on bids for contracts involving ATM switches and to help manage user workflow queues associated with these bids. This process involved creating bids, managing the bid process, tracking changes to bids and bid statuses, and for providing reports on these bids. The application was deployed on BEA's WebLogic application server.
    e-centives, Inc.
    1997-12-01 - 2002-10-01
    Senior Software Engineer/Team Lead
    E-centives was a venture capital funded Internet startup, of which I was the ninth employee hired. The goal of this company was to develop an online incentives program.
    • e-centives Organizer My first assignment at e-centives was to assist in designing and implementing a Microsoft Windows based application for providing coupons to end-users. The application, known as the e-centives Organizer, was featured in several magazines and featured many advanced features including custom controls, irregular shaped windows, and many multi-media enhancements. The application was written using Microsoft Developer Studio and C++ using ObjectStore as our database. In addition, there were several web server plugins developed to permit the client application to communicate with the server through firewalls using the HTTP port. The coupon objects were developed as COM objects that were instantiated from data contained in the ObjectStore database.
    • e-centives Web Organizer The next task involved migrating the technology used in the original application to the web. This involved the creation of a large infrastructure built using J2EE on a clustered Weblogic Application Server. This product is currently a premier product of e-centives, inc. and can be viewed at http://www.e-centives.com. The initial design for this product was done using UML in Microsoft Visio and Rational Rose. We originally developed the product using Microsoft Visual J but later migrated to Netbeans. We also moved away from the ObjectStore database technology to a full Oracle implementation using JDBC to access the data. Part of my responsibilities also included managing a team of three engineers.
    • e-centives Web Framework My last responsibilities before leaving e-centives included maintenance and enhancements to the web based product and also for supporting one of our other major contracts with Reckitt Benckiser. Reckitt Benckiser is the marketing parent for many household products including Lysol, Jet-Dry, and many others. Samples of the sites that we created can be found at http://www.lysol.com, http://www.jet-dry.com, and http://www.calgon.com. We built much of the infrastructure of these products using the J2EE on Weblogic, and using Apache Struts for the site navigation.
