Enterprise Architect/Migration Manager


·         I have added a client where I am building production databases to be used for Manufacturing Execution systems based in the cloud.

·         I am working as an Enterprise Architect/Migration Manager on projects where clients are moving applications to both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

·         I am completing an airline project that consists of a real-time eventing system, gate management, and vendor operations.  My experience in this area began in 2010 with Delta Airlines.  My architecture is a hybrid architecture using traditional data center operations along with Azure service fabric and Azure data warehousing.  Azure WebJobs are used to scale processing of near real time eventing.

Independent Consultant (C2C Contract)

December 5, 2016 to January 15, 2017

Enterprise Architect (Continuous Integration & Automated Testing)


[This is a TDD and BDD driven Agile Development Environment]

Project I:

  • I am the architecture lead on an enterprise scale project exposing data from approximately 600 MM transactions per day.  The portal produced will include example client applications that access point-of-sale information across various business lines.  (Transactions housed in a data warehouse.)

  • Support tools are being constructed using .Net Core 1.1 and run on the Mac, Windows, and Linux. 

  • The user interface is constructed with NodeJS and  Angular 2.0.  The portal supports both Java and .Net applications development.

Project II:

  • Salesforce architectural design and data integration for a cloud project.  Also based upon NodeJS, Angular, and Webpack. 


Technical Setup:

  • There are several scrum teams running two week sprints.  Project tracking occurs in Jira and Confluence.  Some of the tools development is moving out of the Agile arena due to the need for architecture planning and documentation.
