Training Team Calendar

A small project where I had to create an accounting system for a training department that wanted to have a calendar to order rooms and plan training separately for each trainer.

The technology stack included Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access.

Integration of Mobile Billing System with Bonus Card System

I exported data from the billing system to the flat file(s), then sent them to remote FTP. After the response from the bonus card system, I had to download changed files and merge the data into the billing again.

Conditions: each file had to contain no more than the maximum amount of records, and records groups had to be placed in a single file—group breaks were prohibited.

The technology stack included Informatica PowerCenter, Oracle, and Bash.

ODS for a Bank

I was tasked with the creation of a Change Data Capture (CDC) system for a set of remote branches based on Oracle triggers. Then this data had to be periodically gathered, and an ODS had to be created using this data.

The technology stack included Oracle, Informatica PowerCenter, and IPC Web Service Hub.

Script to Operate With Files

A Bash script was created to copy/move files selected by complex conditions between FTP/SFTP/SAMBA/Local sources/targets. A control file controls each instance, containing source/target type, paths, filters, and additional settings (if files are to be processed somehow during the transfer or if they are to be compressed/uncompressed, etc.).

IPC Objects Generator

An IPC contains the ability to generate mappings using template and source metadata (tables description). A set of templates was created as well as a semi-automatic system that generated source data based on changed definitions taken from the PowerDesigner model.

IPC Workflows Run Tool

I was tasked with creating a framework to start IPC workflows by event or by timetable, control the amount of processes running in parallel, notifications in case of failure, provide process dependencies, etc.

The technology stack: Oracle, and IPC.

OBIEE Regression Testing Tool Based on Excel/VBA

The task was to compare data from two different OBIEE servers. An Excel file was created holding all possible combinations of report source fields. This Excel connected to two OBIEE servers, asked to generate reports with sets of filters applied, and compared the results.
