Research & Development : Crisis Management ( 83 -86)
As technical leadwas responsible for development of the Group Decision Support System (GDSE) an Application Specific Environment that designed to support collaborative decision-making. GDSE was implemented as a distributed system consisting of Symbolics 3600 class LISP workstations, a VAX 8200 database, and a VAX 8600 text base supporting a high-speed text processor GESCAN. Development was done in FLAVORS, an object oriented variant of LISP. The solution had similarities to the Xerox Collaborative Decision Making Laboratory (Colab) project.
Knowledge Engineering (86-89)
Taught training courses in the use of the KES expert system shell. KES is a backward chaining Mycin like product that featured a easy to understand syntax,implementation in C (as opposed to Lisp), broad portability, and high performance. Consulted with clients in the use of the product.
Distributed Object Oriented Systems Development (89-20)
Architected solutions complex distributed mission critical applications for over a dozen European customers primarily in the area of telecommunications and transportation management systems using the SNAP application server (similar to J2EE), C, Unix, SUN and HP platforms. Typically worked on HP or SUN platforms with C language and Oracle DBMS. Served in presales and post sales roles.
Designed, developed and managed the development of about ten different network management systems: the development of the Single Point of Operation for SS7 , the Management Information Gateway (an element management system interface), and the GTE Skystar Advantage satellite video network management system.Additionally I supported the development of an airline reservation network for Westinghouse, a terrestrial video network management system for Williams Communications, and the Deep Space network for JPL
As a product manager I defined the requirements for the System Management Template, defined its architecture, participated in its development, developed and taught training courses, used it contractual efforts, and assisted in associated sales efforts.
Enterprise Application Integration (2000 - 2001)
Architected solutions for Enterprise Application Integration and Business Process Automation products.Performed Presales functions: analyzed customer requirements, formulated solutions, studied features of competitive products, prepared briefings, demonstrations, wrote proposals, and built prototypes.Developed training course on the Geneva Enterprise Application Integration Products and delivered it multiple times in the US and the Middle East with highly positive feedback. The success of the training resulted in a major contract with a reseller of Level 8 technology in the Telco marketplace.I Implemented a connector for an EAI (Geneva Enterprise Integrator) in Java and a Java based screen scraper product..
