Web Service Application for Integrating Oracle EBS with Oracle Primavera

A two-way client application on Oracle Enterprise Database with PL/SQL and Web Services for 35+ endpoints hosted on Primavera Database. I developed this application, which included designing and implementing the data model and data pipeline with incremental and full refresh options. The application saved approximately $1 million per year by avoiding outsourced software.

Replacing Outsourced Applications of Oracle MES Module with In-house MES Applications

In-house data entry web applications to be used by blue-collar technicians and reports to replace outsourced applications that were not easy to use, not applicable, or obsolete. While working in a Scrum team to develop these applications, I designed the data model and data flow and integrated it with other manufacturing modules in terms of business rules and data integrity. The application saved annual licensing costs of $500,000 and achieved an ROI in just six months!
