Accomplishments

Designed, prototyped, and managed development of a dynamic web reporting product which accommodated the changing needs of the client and eliminated inevitable revisions by anticipating future needs. Led software development staff to develop a web report generation tool that allowed for rapid production of web reports, provided a consistent look and feel throughout all reports, and significantly decreased turn-around time 

Results: Web report development dropped from an average of three weeks to an average of three hours per report page with all content dynamic and driven by user response rather than existing as static web pages.

Identified problem in an information management system, of government entity (customer) relative to the correlation between personnel data and manpower data. Developed data warehousing and reporting solution which allowed for complete integration of personnel, manpower, and payroll data into one complete view. This information provided proof to the Department and to Congress that the Civilian Pay funding was needed and accounted for.

Results: Customer realized funding of $30,000,000-$60,000,000 annually. This was money Congress was previously pulling back from the customer each fiscal year.

Coordinated process improvement efforts to decrease rate of defects when releasing new product (data warehouse, web application, etc.) to customer. Negotiated contract values, developed methodologies, and communicated with vendors to maintain budgetary parameters.

Results: Rate of problems introduced into the production environment decreased by 90%
