TECHNICAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS Date Special Assignments, Special Projects ----------- ------------------------------------------------------ 1981 - Developed, from A to Z, a new IMS accounting system for Ericsson, 1982 including various types of systems and application programming; IMS and SORT exits (E15, E35), batch, MPP, and BMP programming, logical and physical database design, building PSBs & DBDs as well as MFS and JCL. Plus writing operator and end user documentations. 1982 - Was part of the Ericsson-IBM joint MVS/VSCR project; Implemented 1984 IMS MSC splitting prod systems, MVS/XA migration project, and the I/O reconfiguration project. Technically responsible for setting up and running a new remote non-attended MVS/JES3/IMS site. Was evaluating and implementing Candle's Omegamon/RTA/Epilog for IMS (Ericsson subsequently became Candle's reference site). Implemented a new dataset naming standard for Ericsson. Was responsible for IMS performance & tuning, implemented TPNS and SURF (from Amdahl) for benchmarking, forecasting, and function tests. 1984 - Was PK-banken's IMS technical specialist in the between Sparbanken (now FSB), 1985 PK-banken (now Merita-Nordbanken), and VISA joint bankcard project (BABS). 1986 - A short job for Ericsson Radio doing some Cobol programming on an ICL 1987 running George II (!). IMS responsible (sysprog) for Telia, worked with implementation of DBRC, automation, and various technical training. Coded a number of automation programs for the operations, archive exits, change accum procedures, to allow less frequent backups and IMS running 24/7. Installed new releases of CICS and DB2 for Vin&Sprit, and subsequently "cleaned up" their systems by various trouble shooting and by establishing naming standards and promote procedures. 1987 - IBM Lab in development, working with OPC 3.1, OPC/A, and OPC/ESA. 1995 Member of the Design Review Board. Member of the MVS Council. Was mainly responsible for coding and/or maintaining: scheduling - Workstation Analyzer, SUBmittor task, submit checkpointing event signalling - MVS & JES exits (ACTRT, UJI, U83, EXIT7, UX19, UX29), EQQUSINx, OPSTAT, SRSTAT, dataset close triggering event creation - EQQSSCMx, Event Writer, JCC connectivity - Data Router Task, NCF (VTAM), XCF, Event Reader event processing - Event Manager, Event Handler, ETT 1995 - Skills & product transfer from IBM Nordic Lab -> IBM Rome Lab. Was 1997 training and supporting the IBM'ers, 15 Italian programmers, first three months in Sweden, and subsequently 12 months down in Rome. 1997 - IMS country specialist, mainly handling defects. Participated in non-defect 1998 related activities too: - installation/customization of IMS aimed for Y2K tests - overseas trip with customers to the Santa Teresa Lab, San Jose, for an executive briefing/developers meeting regarding OTMA and ITOC - worked three months with the IMS World Wide support team in the Santa Teresa Lab - was part of a SNA -> TCP/IP migration project - installed/customized/prototyped a TCP/IP link from a VAX/VMS to IMS using OTMA and ITOC - migration of a number of IMS 4.1 systems up to IMS 6.1 - locking overhead/performance studies of IMS, IRLM, and Coupling Facility when running DL/I in n-way data sharing (Sysplex) 4.
