LOTUS CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS (Lotus Notes Consultant /Application Developer V4.5 Principle level and Notes 5 PCLP)

Also a certified scuba diver & avid hiker / world tarveler.

Details on Lotus Notes Experience:

My current Projects are all web based applications on a Domino 5.0 platform, with significant Client-side programming in JavaScript 1.1 and DHTML

This Lotus Premier Partner was started by the Managing Director of Lotus Consulting - UK, and Director from Anderson Consulting. They focus primarily on the Healthcare industry of the UK. Worked with them on the Alpha release of Notes 5 on a project to automate the healthcare providers in the UK. The project scale was such that Notes 4 could not handle the volume of data. Worked with Lotus as a pilot site demonstrating the effectiveness of their then new Notes 5 in being used for Industrial scale Applications.

European Application Development Team member. Rolling out basic Notes 3 applications to user population of 6000+ on 67 Notes r4 servers. Notes Application support and bug-fixing. Consulting in Notes 3 to 4 migration. The European MARS ISI Notes team is a large one. Currently there are 9 System Administrators and 12 Developers as well as standard desktop support people. Reference..

I have been very fortunate to work with this leading edge technology company. MTi writes trading systems for 10% of the worlds banking industry with 80 AAA banks and many central banks as customers. Internally they have UNIX and NT systems sitting on, amongst other things, 67 DEC Alpha's. Commenced with debugging Notes 3 applications -customer tracking database- testing Notes 3 applications for upgrade to Notes 4. Global deployment and upgrade of Notes 4 to 8 sites in 6 major cities. Initiated a project to integrate Notes to the INTERNET (InterNotes). Integration of Notes with MS SQL 6 database (NotesPump, Lotus Forms, ViP). Provided ? day basic Notes user training courses. Worked with Total Quality Management team to Re-Engineer the status models of work-flow application (help desk). Reference..

As one of their first UK consultants, I assisted Lexus Consulting in setting up their London operation with Lotus Notes r4 on Windows NT 3.51 server and Windows '95 clients. I also obtained Lotus Business Partner status for them. Expanded their client base and assisted in recruitment of certified Lotus Notes Specialists. We had a Notes server connected via leased line to the INTERNET and (according to Lotus Development, UK) were probably the first company to replicate their databases over the INTERNET.

Provided a "Jump Start Field support" service. Client was a publishing and print farming company desiring a system to assist in Communication, Collaboration and Co-ordination with Small office/ Home office based graphic designers and media specialists for sharing large publishing assignments.

Installed and configured Notes v3.3 on Windows95 Server and set-up clients (mostly Macintosh System 7.5 remote connections). Rolled out General Discussion Database and provided System Administration and Application Development skills transfer.

As the new IT Manager for this large glass manufacturer, I introduced a Lotus Notes pilot project for the Sales & Marketing department in cooperation with external consultants and succeeded in replacing the older system.

I installed the infrastructure with Lotus Notes v3.3 on OS/2 WARP with LAN clients (Novell 3.12 with SPX) and dial-in clients and employed an application developer for 6 weeks to create a complex sales leads application that distributed leads according to location and value sales rep. etc.. Data was manipulated using ZMERGE, thus avoiding the Notes API.

This enhanced the productivity of our 'on the road' sales force considerably and speeded up responses to customer inquiries.

An enhancement was integrating QA quick address speeding up the data entry in the address field. Reference..
