The first assignment was to restructure the internal development department
to avoid the above the market average turn-over within the Company, mostly
due to lack of leadership and frustration on hopping between several
different tasks during the same day. The approach adopted was based on
Empowerment, Motivation and Mentoring of the bests in the team, hiring new
strategic human resources and migrate the past process to a more solid and
actual plan based on Rewards.
Due to the pure management nature of the role and compared this to my
prevalent skills I proposed to the Board of Management to step aside and
wear a different strategic hat in a completely and until then absent new
role for the Company: Chief System Architect.

The latest small project I\'ve been working on for this company, was a
simple concept but high technology Business Email Handler, based on
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and XAML for the UI.
The whole purpose of the project was to monitor mail addresses contained in
a distribution list and follow a specified path with the captured contents:
. Validate
. Transform
. Handle
The application I\'ve been architecting and developing myself is totally
based on pluggable extension (PlugIns, AddIns, SnapIns, whatever you want
to call them), meaning is totally customizable along its fixed sequence of
actions. I provided some default Monitors (SMTP, Exchange and Notes),
Validators (the default one is checking if the subject is formatted in a
predefined way and verify the body and attachment for Business Rules) and
Handlers (Write the attachment to a disk folder as per subject direction)
for the common used tools. The application is now under client test and it
has already be successfully installed on few Italian Financial institution

The company had to implement their CASE system to generate all of their
available products using the .NET framework. I did the initial analysis
with their internal architects and we all agreed that the new template had
to support the multi-layer architecture. I built the templates keeping in
mind the MVC pattern (Model-View-Controller) because the same logic had to
be applied for the J2EE.
Every layer is now totally separate and independent from the other. The
real challenge with this project was to keep the manually written part of
the software (10-15%) and the other automatically generated (85-90%) still
working and reusable even if written for another language and platform
(mainly COBOL-CICS-DB2 on Mainframe). To make this real we had to create a
CICS gateway layer and run the relative application on the right server and
then return the answer to the caller; this is because all of Linfor\'s
clients using their software specifically asked to keep the business logic
and the database on a Mainframe environment. The interoperation phase was
accomplished by building a Web Service available to all their applications
and responsible for all of the communication back and forth from the
Mainframe. This service, on request, can be available from Linfor itself
to use their internal rentable service (Loans, Mortgages, etc...). I flew
to Italy several times to complete this project. The project is now up and
running and the company is able to generate all their existing applications
using this new architecture. This has been a great success and
Linfor/EuroPulsar has exclaimed that \"It\'s like, suddenly, we have 50 new
applications ready to sell in a flash!\"

The Architect from Zues originally contacted me at the start of this
project but I was unavailable at the time. They contacted me a second time
when they were in the middle of developing the new \"Bingo Interconnesso\"
game. I discovered that Zeus was actually working on a similar project
that I had just completed for Iterservizi and CBN with the same goals but
the terms of development were different. This project was starting from a
different language (they used C# instead of VB) and a different development
environment (VisualStudio 2005 instead of 2003). I had to start the
project again from scratch and rewrite the TCP listener and Data Layer with
help from their internal people. I also revised the security so now they
are relying on NT Security and not on their user\'s security. The project
was completed and tested in several Bingo halls in Italy with great
success, however, they are waiting for the Italian government\'s approval to
implement into 300+ Bingo halls in Italy.
Another project entailed enhancements to already built E-Commerce websites
and one of their internal applications concerning information sharing; the
E-Commerce was built using BizTalk and these clients who were selling their
products wanted to have better links to their clients. The information
sharing internal application was built using SharePoint and Project Server
which enabled them to do the regular SharePoint documents, events, etc.
They now plan their project using Project 2003, sharing info through
SharePoint that is data enriched and updates using a local developed COM
add-in that I architected and built to communicate through a local running
Windows Service with a remote SQL Server database.
The technical features used to accomplish this task and my responsibilities
are briefly listed below:

Iterservizi was going to start development of the new \"Bingo Interconnesso\"
game and contacted me for my help to work alongside CBN employees. The
first steps of analysis were already done but the Italian government didn\'t
really have a clear idea about what they needed from the software houses.
They also didn\'t have any idea as to what kind of technical documentation
was needed. for the 10+ competitors ready to begin their development or at
least their project phase. My main role in this case was to keep track and
be the active link between Iterservizi and the CBN and direct the technical
architecture phase. The basic game was based on the already running Ontario
Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLGC) game \"Bingo Link\". (CBN had a deal
with OLGC for the Italian game). I had to keep in mind what was already up
and running and build the new local database model requested for the
Italian game. I also had to architecture the global local game structure as
requested with only a small amount of information available as well as be
ready for sudden deviations from the original idea because the same
government was in its own development phase. This was not easy but at the
end it was accomplished and was tested in 5 Bingo halls. These Bingo halls
are perfectly up and running but the game has not been officially launched
as of yet.
I completed the architecture and built the Web Services, Web-based GUI,
Windows GUI and TCP listener. I also connected all the Databases and worked
with the Canadian team who were focused on adapting the old game to the new
rules and led the Italian staff.

Mondadori [VERONA (VE) - Italy]
Mondadori is one of the most important editorial Italian groups and they
asked me to convert their PC-based Cobol application (Inventory) to a PC-
based .NET 2003 application (VB). The challenge was based on the time
available for completing the project (3 months) and the amount of software
and database (100 programs and 1 local database with over 50 tables). After
my first analysis, I optimized and normalized the Informix database
structure to less than 30 tables and migrated it to Oracle. I successfully
converted 25+ huge programs, which gave them the right directions for the
remaining ones that were meant to be translated internally.

Calzaturificio Roberta S.r.l. (Ferragamo) (Florence - Italy)
. Architecture, project and development of a new application to manage the
production, buying, stocking and selling phases for leather shoes:
> Multi-Tier environment:
V GUI, Business and Data totally separated and independent
V DB based massive elaborations (stored procedures)
V High upgradeability and scalability system
V Open system to interface to the Microsoft BackOffice packages, like
Microsoft Transaction Server, Microsoft System Management Server and
Microsoft Proxy Server
V Help points along the production physical path to check the working
flow
> The system was built with:
V Production checking and updating phase
V Stocking management
V Invoices
V Orders
V Expedition and Selling
V Main branch communication features through email, web, fax, etc...
> The challenge on the project was on my proposal to build the system in
such a way that was possible to keep communicating with existing Unix
and Legacy applications, whose data storage was still not easy to
change or delegate to other distributed systems. Since the beginning of
the project I provided the Client with several solutions to choose
from, some of them based on Microsoft or IBM tools and others with both
mixed and communicating. Several parts of the existing applications
inside the company were internal developed as per Headquarters requests
(here we\'re talking of a big manufacturing company, Prada, delegating
workload on hundreds of this factories) and using my B2B solution at
least this is still able to translate old fashion orders coming from
the top in a work chain perfectly manageable in a graphical way by the
management.
