Social Services Application Re-platform

Technical Project Lead for the application re-platform of a Government social services application.

With multiple components in the application technology stack coming to end-of-life, I led the client through the journey of identifying and selecting newer proven technologies (Solaris vs Linux), more recent software revision (WebLogic) and platforms containing new capabilities (Oracle RAC).

  • Worked with vendors to ensure reference-ability, fair product pricing/licensing and ongoing supportfor a heterogeneous solution.
  • Deployed proof-of-concept environment.
  • Performed sociability testing and performance bench-marking.
  • Nursemaid development and data teams through application, integration and data migration planning andtesting.

Result: The client successful executed the re-platform through all SDLC environments out into production with minimal risk and service disruption.
