Migration of existing functionality from legacy platforms to a new platform on a mainframe. Responsible for analysis, design, coding, testing, deployment and support of contained areas of migrated functionality.  Support maintained until a suitable warranty period had occurred after which a full handover to the OM support team was carried out.


Working on migrating functionality in legacy systems to a newer workflow management system (‘Office Management’ a.k.a. ‘OM’) as part of the Y2K programme.  During this time I  developed particular expertise in all aspects for printing from OM and was recognised as a departmental expert in OM document management.

I also developed a number of developer tools as part of the in-house RAD workbench suite and sets of documentation from scratch on new functionality and OM document management.

  • JCL for code compilation submissions.
  • Endevor used for code management.
  • Infoman used for incident management, problem management and change process.
  • RAD development methodologies.
  • Development of developer support tools in REXX.
