PROFILE
A highly skilled and vastly experienced Oracle practitioner with extensive knowledge of
Backend/Frontend and Web enabled systems, encompassing 23 years of experience using these and
other skills, in differing environments and across multiple platforms. To supplement my existing skills
and experience, I have undertaken Oracle University courses and also have Oracle 10g Development
DBA skills. I have business skills in areas such as Life and Pensions, Health Insurance, Accounts,
Transport and Warehousing and Retail Banking.

CAREER HISTORY
03/06 TO Date    BUPA, BRIGHTON.
                 Software Specialist/System Designer.
                 I was initially taken on as a support/development software specialist, supporting and
                 enhancing the company's main OLTP systems and associated day/night batch
                 processing systems.The front end system is written in Visual Basic 6 using the
                 standard OOD framework of Presentation, Business and Data classes. The data layer
                 is an Oracle 8i database and communication of data is made using Stored
                 Procedures. Customer and Management documents and reports are produced using
                 Oracle Reports 6 and claims and invoice data feeds are received using a combination
                 of XML and Flat files. Development tools include Visual Studio 6, Toad v8 and
                 Mercury Quality Centre.
                 After an initial period in the above role, I was promoted to the position of Systems
                 Designer. My role was to design and plan the data architecture of the strategic OLTP
                 systems and supporting software going forward. Both the main Policy Servicing and
                 Peoplesoft Financial Accounting systems are out of extended support so my first
                 project was to investigate the feasibility of upgrading the databases underpinning
                 both of these systems. As well as being the technical design authority, I was also the
                 project DBA and performed all of the necessary installations, data migrations and
                 upgrades myself. I also used this project to pioneer the use of the UML modelling
                 tool Enterprise Architect and reverse engineered the existing into an Entity
                 Relationship Diagram. Subsequent projects have been more application based and I
                 have been designing enhancements and re-development of the OLTP system into a
                 SOA based technology using C# as the language platform. Again the Enterprise

                 Architect tool has been used to construct the Context, Component, UI Storyboard,
                 Sequence and Deployment UML diagrams necessary for the Detailed Design
                 Specifications to be sent offshore for build and Unit testing.
                 I was also tasked with the responsibility of setting up the teams’ website on the
                 company intranet. To speed development time, the site was built using a combination
                 of wiki’s and custom php scripts.
                 More recently I have been involved with database performance investigations into
                 another Bupa company's system after its upgrade to oracle 10g. Load tests have been
                 performed and the dynatrace tool was used to analyse both the .net application and
                 the flow of data to/from the database. The analysis I performed on the top 20 CPU
                 consumers and the resulting changes to the SQL/PL/SQL lead to 20%-40%
                 improvements on execution times.
                 I am currently working on the database upgrade implementation strategy to Oracle
                 11g to make sure all new relevant features are suitably adopted. Because of global
                 business demands the business need a high availiblity solution so Real Application
                 Clustering and the hardware to support it has been drafted. Security needs are going
                 to be addressed by Database/Audit vault and Transparent Data Encryption. And the
                 legacy Office reporting system is going to be replaced by Application Server fed
                 XML-FSO documents for Customer facing output. I hove also updated coding
                 standards to incorporate the new Database 11g SQL and PL/SQL features.

06/05 TO 08/05   DATABASE SYSTEMS LTD, WORTHING.
                 Contract ICT Consultant.
                 I was working for a small consultancy developing and supporting software for
                 advertising and book supply companies. The advertising company have systems in
                 hospital maternity units that feed advertising material into monitors on display to the
                 waiting patients. The system is a visual basic and Access 2003 solution running on
                 Windows XP 2003 Servers. The book supply company are a big importer of books for
                 Amazon and they have a system written in Visual Basic with a SQL Server 2000 and
                 Oracle 9i data layer underneath. The system controls all Ordering/Invoicing and
                 stock movement and connects to Amazon through an FTP interface. All data over 3
                 months old is archived into SQL Server while the live system is held within an Oracle
                 9i Database. An integral part of my function on the Oracle side was to provide DBA
                 production and development on a 9-5 basis. All Oracle SQL was held within stored
                 procedures so that no SQL was called from VB. We used TOAD as the ORACLE
                 development environment. The FTP service was written using the Winsock and
                 WInInet Windows API’s to transfer and receive the accounts and stock data files.

02/05 TO 02/05   ORACLE UNIVERSITY TRAINING, CAPE TOWN, RSA.
                 After 20 years of mainly development experience, I decided to retrain into an area of
                 specialisation I had been considering for a number of years. As a result of my Oracle
                 Database 10g DBA training my technical knowledge now extends to the following
                 skills;
                 Oracle installation and storage structures    Globalisation support
                 Database creation and maintenance             Database corruption recovery

CAREER HISTORY contd.......

02/03 TO 12/04   WEB EVOLUTION (UK) LTD, WEST SUSSEX.
                 Web Developer/Internet Consultant.
                 I continued my home-based internet/web activities but with an extended product
                 range offering including Virtual ISP services. I specialised in Database and
                 Programming activities and sub-contracted my services out to other web companies.
                 All in-house work was carried out using Dreamweaver/Fireworks, Photoshop and
                 Flash to produce the images and html, with all of the dynamic web pages constructed
                 using ASP and Javascript. The data content was held mainly in either Microsoft
                 Access or SQL Server databases, although a large client provided an Oracle 9i
                 backend to connect to.

08/02 TO 09/02 WINCANTON LOGISTICS, WILTSHIRE.
      and      Contract Analyst/Programmer.
09/01 TO 03/02 I was working on the Calidus WMS Warehouse Management system written in
               Powerhouse and Microfocus COBOL with an Oracle 9i backend. Most of the
               development was done on the Unix platform with all documentation produced under
               Windows. Test and QA scenarios were constructed and executed using Korn
               Shellscripts and TOAD was used for all Oracle development. As well as providing
               assistance with the ongoing customisation of the system to meet new and existing
               customer’s needs, I also aided in the partial transition from the legacy COBOL
               backend to a PL/SQL based backend. The system incorporated all necessary
               functions for a fully functional warehousing system including Goods In/Out,
               Automated pallet movement and replenishment. As well as the character based front
               end the system also communicates with the outside world via Radio Data Terminals
               which interface with the system using third party software to access the task tables
               within the backend database. The development, front and backend systems ran on
               IBM AIX based machines.

01/01 TO 07/01   AXA PPP HEALTHCARE, KENT.
                 Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                 I was working on a project to replace the existing EDI based Patient Claims Invoice
                 capture system, with an FTP based system utilising XML standard documents as the
                 information source. The system was written in Visual Basic 6 using the Winsock and
                 WinInet API’s with the original Access 97 database backend being replaced by
                 Oracle 8i. I also instigated a conversion to an N-tier architecture using ActiveX
                 COM object oriented design techniques. The new system runs a batch process to
                 retrieve the XML documents from an FTP server, extract the data using XSL style
                 sheets and load it into the Backend database, ready for transfer and assimilation into
                 the Mainframe Customer System. Receipt files are generated and sent back to the
                 originator using an ActiveX module to convert the ASCII data into XML. I also
                 developed a GUI FTP client program as a backup procedure to enable connection to
                 the FTP server for the manual Upload/Download of XML files. I also introduced new
                 design and documentation standards to complement the new tiered architecture. In
                 addition to my development responsibilities I provided technical support assistance
                 in the absence of a colleague, which involved the maintenance of the SQL Server 6.5
                 and Access 97 databases and their respective frontends.

01/00 TO 12/00   WEB EVOLUTION (UK) LTD, WEST SUSSEX.
                 Web Designer/Constructor.
                 I was running my own Internet/Web/Software business working from home. My client
                 base varies from a Child sports and activity company through to Accountants and a
                 chain of mobile phone shops. The sites I have produced also vary widely from simple

CAREER HISTORY contd.......

                one page ‘brochure’ sites to an interactive shopping cart e-commerce site. I have
                also teamed up with another Web company for whom I do most of the database work.
                This encompasses mainly Oracle 8i and MySQL, although I have also worked on a
                SQL Server 7 project aswell. My development environment is a Linux based database
                Server running kernel version 2.2, Oracle 8i version 2 and MySQL version 3.22. My
                client development workstation is a Windows 2000 machine from which all of the
                design work is carried out using Corel Draw 9/Photoshop 6/Hot Dog 6 and
                Dreamweaver 4/Fireworks 4 to produce the HTML/DHTML to version 4 standard.
                Only the most basic of sites are constructed using only these languages and all of my
                sites that are database driven, have PHP v.3/4 heavily embedded into the code.
                I also built a portfolio of non-web clients for whom I built systems using VISUAL
                BASIC 6 with any combination of MySQL/Access/SQL Server 7/Interbase at the
                back end.

9/00 TO 10/00   PRUDENTIAL EUROPE, DUBLIN, IRELAND.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                This was a short project to automate the upload of Foreign Exchange data applicable
                to the company business. The system was written in Visual Basic 6 with a Sybase V10
                database. I liaised with two external forex rate providers who would FTP files
                containing the rates over every morning. After some complex validation the files and
                their validation reports were then transferred into Microsoft Excel Workbooks
                before being uploaded into the Database tables. As the system operated on a
                Client/Server WAN shared by all of the European Offices, all database activity was
                facilitated using STORED PROCEDURES to reduce network traffic. The project was
                deemed as being mission critical and the functional and detailed designs were signed
                off by a working party that included the Treasury Manager.

4/99 TO 9/99    IRISH LIFE, DUBLIN, IRELAND.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                My role was to carry out a Business Process Review of the Corporate Business
                Defined Benefit Claims area, with a view to specifying and developing a totally
                integrated Client/Server based Claims management system using the strategic
                development platform of VISUAL BASIC 6.0 under WINDOWS NT 4, and
                ORACLE 7.3.4 running under HP-UX. I effectively operated as a one-man team and
                enjoyed full life cycle participation. The existing business processes involved many
                manual information gathering tasks with antiquated Mainframe systems providing
                the user with additional information.The initial function to be prototyped was a
                quotation system, providing a member leaving his group pension scheme, with
                documented options detailing his retirement or withdrawal entitlements according to
                the law and scheme rules. I setup a ‘project Working group’ consisting of key
                business contacts, management and Technical signoff personnel. Each stage of the
                development cycle was progressed and audited by the working group and progress to
                the next stage of development could only be made after sign-off. After the initial
                Business and logical modelling, the Functional and technical design processes
                began. The Database was designed and a functional prototype was built. Given the
                company’s long term aims and goals I duely developed an object level approach to
                system design and development enabling the transition to a COM based middle tier.
                Because of the fully built prototype, the system build phase involved the development
                of the data tier and is connection to DAO 3.5 using standard SQL to retrieve data.
                For validation and verification purposes, Audit tables were created and updated
                using TRIGGERS to call STORED PROCEDURES. Part of the system interfaced
                with tables held on Microsoft Excel worksheets. Whenever the user updated these
                tables a download process was initiated using SQL*LOADER routines, to transfer
                data from the NT environment, into the ORACLE tables held on UNIX.

CAREER HISTORY contd.......

11/98 TO 3/99   EDS, CRAWLEY, WEST SUSSEX.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was working on-site for their client PAYMASTER. The company is responsible for
                the payment of all civil service pensions and were rewriting and converting their
                systems from an old ICL Mainframe to clustered HP9000 UNIX machines running
                ORACLE 8.0.5. I was one of two contractors responsible for the design and
                development of two new systems that both Automatically and Semi-automatically
                produce letters from a choice of over 400 templates. I was completely responsible
                for the design and development of the Semi-automatic system. It was written in
                ORACLE FORMS 5.0, REPORTS 3.0 and PL/SQL 8 within the DEVELOPER/2000
                2.3 Toolset, running on WINDOWS NT 4.0 clients. Extensive use was made of
                VISUAL BASIC for APPLICATIONS 5.0, via the use of OLE2 and Automation
                methods and controls to integrate Microsoft Word’97 into the system to provide
                Word Processing functionality. Other facilities such as simple MIS reporting and the
                maintenance of individual letter components were provided along with table
                maintenance forms and tools that allow the on-line maintenance and formatting of
                the document templates which feed the fully automatic system. The fully automated
                system was written in Microfocus OBJECT COBOL 4.1 using Embedded SQL within
                a Microfocus Toolbox environment, running under HP-UX (UNIX). This had a
                character-based screen input system to capture and input the requests during the On-
                line day, and a batch system to run over-night to produce formated Letters.

6/97 TO 7/98    DEUTSCHE BANK, FRANKFURT, GERMANY.
                Contract Technical Team Leader.
                In January I was made responsible for the project’s technical interfaces to DB2 and
                CICS, and due to the constant expansion of these interfaces, I was promoted to take
                charge of a small team. The development was carried out in the same way as my
                duties above, and I still performed those duties in addition to my Team Leading ones.
                It wa also my responsibility to enforce Project standards and Version control and I
                completed the implemention of the source versioning and control package PVCS
                which was, initially, piloted within my team, as all programs within my responsilibity,
                had Project wide impact. Additionally, I worked closely with the DBA team to ensure
                the efficiency of all SQL used within the system and had the authority to ensure all
                Procedures were as efficient as possible. Initially I was working on the development
                of a new Personal Loans system for the bank. The development was carried out in a
                dual environment with the initial phase taking place on the PC under OS/2. A mixture
                of ADW 2.7/KEY 4.1 and Native MICROFOCUS COBOL was used to maintain
                both new and existing development standards, although all program specifications
                were written using the ADW Design/Planning workbench. CICS and DB2 calls were
                embedded within the code and tested using DB2/2 and the MICROFOCUS
                WORKBENCH CICS emulation facility. Once PC based testing was completed the
                code wqs transferred to an IBM ES/9000 MVS/ESA host system where final unit
                testing was carried out under CICS 4.1.

2/97 TO 5/97    ABBEY NATIONAL BUILDING SOCIETY, MILTON KEYNES.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I worked on the migration of a COBOL/II, CICS Customer Enquiry system from the
                legacy TERRADATA Database onto an ORACLE 7.3 Database. As the system ran
                across a distributed system, all Database calls were made via STORED
                PROCEDURES accessed with embedded PL/SQL routines. All work was carried out
                under TSO/ISPF, including access to SQL*Plus.

CAREER HISTORY contd.......

8/96 TO 1/97    NIKE EUROPE B.V., HILVERSUM, HOLLAND.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was working in a Multi-platform environment creating an Interface between IBM
                DB2 and UNIX/ORACLE databases. Both platforms combined to facilitate the
                Corporate Accounting and Stock Control Systems. The Invoicing, Stock Control and
                Order Entry systems ran on an IBM ES/9000 serving all the European countries with
                local country IBM AS/400’s providing Data Entry. The main Accounting system is
                the ORACLE FINANCIALS package running on SPARC UNIX machines in each
                Country. Both platforms were accessed via PC’s running VT320 and PC3270
                emulation under WINDOWS. The two platforms comunicated via Flat format
                Interface files FTP’d between Systems. I worked with Senior Developers from both
                the IBM and UNIX platforms who provided the technical requirements from which I
                produced the Interface tables and Programs required for the Interface to work. The
                IBM side was developed using IBM COBOL/II, DB2, CSP and VSAM utilising
                QMF, FILEAID and PLATINUM Products as Development aids, while the UNIX
                side was developed using PL/SQL and SQL*Plus.

4/96 TO 7/96    NORWICH UNION LIFE & PENSIONS, NORFOLK.
                Contract Business Systems Engineer.
                I was working within a Production Support team catering specifically for the
                Financial and Accounting Systems. The work involved was mainly a Production
                Support role encompassing trouble-shooting, program modification and system
                enhancement within an IBM ES9000 environment. My main area of specialisation
                was an Incentive and Commission Management system which was written in IBM
                COBOL II, CICS, DB2 and ADW. Although most of the work was ‘online’ there was
                also a small ‘Batch’ element aswell. The tools used to facilitate the work included
                TSO/ISPF, QMF, PMF, SPUFI, XPEDITOR, INTERTEST, FILEAID, PLATINUM
                and the MICROSOFT OFFICE SUITE. All work was carried out on a PC platform
                under OS/2 and WINDOWS with PC3270 emulation providing the link to the
                Mainframe.

1/96 TO 3/96    NCM CREDIT INSURANCE, CARDIFF.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was working for Oracle UK, at a their client site in Cardiff, South Wales,
                developing an interface between the legacy IMS Database and the newly developed
                ORACLE Database. The client, a Dutch Credit Insurance company, specialises in
                the Import/Export trade. The system was written in Pro*COBOL, SQL and PL/SQL
                and runs on an IBM Mainframe under MVS/ESA using SQL*Net to implement a
                Client/Server architecture. The GUI Client Front-end was written in FORMS 4.5 and
                REPORTWRITER 2.0. ORACLE CASE Dictionary was also used as a Design Tool
                under a WINDOWS Development environment using PC3270 comms protocol. The
                Microsoft Office suite was also used in the Design/Development process.

7/95 TO 11/95   ANDERSON CONSULTING, LONDON.
                Contract Business Solutions Engineer.
                I was involved in the migration and development of a 'Customer Information System'
                from a mainframe based COBOL, CICS, DB2 system to a UNIX/PC based
                POWERBUILDER, MICROFOCUS COBOL and ORACLE RDBMS Client/Server
                system. My main area of development was the COBOL/SQL, PL/SQL side. Prior to
                commencing the contract I attended an ORACLE SQL Training course at Oracle's
                Training centre to gain the necessary RDBMS knowledge. The 'Customer
                Information System' provided computer automation for Gas and Electricity Utility
                companies. This encompassed everything from Customer/Financial Accounting to
                Meter Reading/Estimating and Bill Printing.My particular area of development was
                the Gas Meter reading up/downloading processes and the interfaces with external



                                             Page 6
                devices. All development was done under WINDOWS NT with Microsoft OFFICE
                being the primary development platform In true Anderson fashion, every part of the
                Project Life Cycle was planned rigorously with extensive use of formal
                methodologies. In particular their own products METHOD/1 and DESIGN/1 were
                adopted as the major design and system structuring strategies. Before any code was
                touched, extensive analysis and design tasks, were undertaken to minimise rework
                and duplication. Initially, some of my time was spent training some of the Junior
                members of the project to be proficient in the use of COBOL/II. As my experience has
                covered many programming editors, I also had the opportunity to participate in the
                customization of the Microsoft OFFICE products using VISUAL BASIC. The
                platform was based around HP9000 UNIX Servers with WINDOWS NT Client
                machines.

2/95 TO 4/95    FIRST DATA RESOURCES LTD, ESSEX.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was working in an onsite agency managed team, developing an enhancement to the
                existing Credit/Debit Card Processing System, to provide the facility to process
                transactions in Currencies other than Sterling. The system was written in IBM
                ASSEMBLER COBOL/II, CICS with VSAM files and ran on an IBM ES/9000
                Mainframe under MVS/ESA, with the development taking place under TSO/ISPF
                and CA-ROSCOE. Development aids include SELCOPY, FILE-AID and
                XPEDITOR. The work was written to specifications, although a lot of analysis and
                investigation was needed as the detail varied and was sometimes ambiguous. After
                Unit-testing the finished development was passed on to be checked, Quality Audited
                and System tested by the Team Leader.

7/94 TO 12/94   NATIONAL PROVIDENT INSTITUTE, KENT.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was involved in a team developing a PC based Pension Illustration System. The
                majority of the work revolved around developing software to meet new Official
                guidelines governing the 'Hard Disclosure' of Commission to Financial Advisers. I
                was also involved in the development of software to allow the system to be interfaced
                to the service provided by AT&T Istel. The system was written in MICROFOCUS
                COBOL/III in an OS/2 Lan environment using WORKBENCH as the development
                tool. The calculation engine part of the system was written using ADW to produce
                Cobol Code. A lot of the files existed both on PC's and an IBM 3090 Mainframe
                which needed use of TSO to Import/Export these.

4/94 TO 6/94    ACT FINANCIAL SYSTEMS LTD, BIRMINGHAM.
                Contract Analyst/Programmer.
                I was in a team developing a pioneering Contactles Smartcard System for use by
                Public Transport Operators and Authorities. The system involves the use of a 'smart'
                Debit Card to pay for fares on Public Transport i.e. Bus, Train, Tram, Ferry etc. This
                involves numerous pieces of hardware which have to 'talk' to each other, the central
                processor being a HP9000 UNIX System. There are a number of different Languages
                being used to develop the system with the main one being MICROFOCUS
                COBOL/III in a PC Development Environment using WORKBENCH and
                TOOLBOX.

1/94 TO 4/94    DATAPRO (ABS) LTD, EAST SUSSEX.

                Package to enable Data from Third Party Time-sheet Packages to be imported into
                the system. The whole package was written in MICROFOCUS COBOL/III and
                DIALOG and was developed under the GUI WORKBENCH in a MS WINDOWS
                environment.

2/85 TO 2/86   THORN EMI PLC, HANTS.
               Trainee/Junior Programmer.
               I joined as Trainee with only a limited knowledge of COBOL on a PC. I therefore
               embarked on an extensive training programme enabling me to become proficient in
               IBM COBOL, CICS, DL/1 and VSAM AMS. The production environment consisting

               Although there were different Teams allocated to the different areas, I worked within
               the Technical Support team providing support to the other teams. This meant that I
               gained experience in all the company's core areas and learnt the different ways that
               Business applications are created and how the same tools can be used to create
               these. I also gained my first exposure to MICROFOCUS COBOL and
               WORKBENCH in developing a PC Based Accounts Capture System.
