As an enterprise architect, dealt with many different technologies including databases (transactional and data warehouses), messaging systems (MQ-SERIES, CICS, JMS), ETL (Informatica, Ab-Initio, Datastage, custom ETL), routers, application servers, replication products (Golden Gate), replicated disk storage (EMC/Hitachi/LSI), Virtual environments (VMWARE), Session Routers (Teradata Query Director),
Major contributor to Teradata's product suite around High Availability and Dual Systems. Developed prototype for a major software product for the company. This is the monitoring/control framework that allows Teradata to monitor and control two Teradata systems that are in a mirrored configuration. This framework works across geographically dispersed systems and includes control of all ETL and ancillary systems that feed/interact with the dual databases. Hadoop instructor for HortonWorks courseware - Hadoop Administration, Hive and HBase developer, and Data Science.
Chief Technology Officer @ Research & development of text analytics software in a BigData domain. The specific focus is in the area of semantic analysis of text via a high performance N-dimensional Semantic Knowledge Base (SKB) for deep semantic analytics of text. The SKB is based on concepts distilled from a Ph.D. research topic: http://shrike.depaul.edu/~smlynarc/phd/phd.html. A "must have" for the development of semantic-enabled text analytic capability, especially where large data/document searches are required. The SKB is a component of a complete BigData framework providing high performance, security and fault tolerance for massive data (beyond Hadoop). From June 2014 to Present (1 year 7 months) Board of Advisors - Prognosive Corporation @ Board of advisors for Prognosive; a BigData company. From September 2015 to Present (4 months) Director Big Data Architecture @ Created/lead a BigData architecture and Hadoop implementation practice/COE (Center Of Excellence) for the Teradata Aster division. The COE's mission is to provide architecture and implementation of BigData/Hadoop solutions to Teradata customers. As director I provide pre-sales customer engagement and also participate in architecture engagements for solutions. The COE's focus is broader than just the Hadoop stack and includes integration of Hadoop with customer's ancillary systems (ETL, data source, transactional) plus what is considered Teradata's UDA (Unified Data Architecture) which includes Aster and the Teradata Database. From July 2012 to June 2014 (2 years) Director Enterprise Architecture @ Grew/developed a team of enterprise architects to address architectural needs for integrating Teradata databases into active enterprises. This included SOA, EAI, traditional ETL and real-time data feeds (Active Data Warehousing). My team is also responsible for high availability architectures (Dual Systems), disaster recovery architectures and enterprise/database security. Working manager splitting time between managing the team and bringing in consulting revenue through consulting engagements.
Significant contributor to Teradata's Dual System High Availability product effort, having built the prototype for the Multi-Systems Manager product. Designed/built multi-systems components for Teradata's customers. The Dual System initiative is effectively a cloud computing approach to large databases, supporting a variety of replication strategies and transparent user access to database computing resources. From January 2003 to July 2012 (9 years 7 months) Consultant @ Member of a specialized consulting organization within NCR whose mission was to provide multi-platform consulting services to NCR's largest customers.
