(U.S. Department of Energy), Livermore, California

Position: Software Engineer IV

·         Designed the National Ignition Facility (NIF) data warehouse, comprising of Optics related scientific data, which is gathered when the laser shots are fired. Collected measurements such as optic fluence, density, etc. as the laser beam passes through the optics. End users were Scientists.

·         Also designed and implemented a manufacturing data mart aimed at supporting Optics Production Control and Material Requirements.

·         Extracted data from ERP systems like GLOVIA, Excel, Flat files, MS Access on UNIX operating systems using Informatica PowerCenter 7.1 and Perl DBI.

These Data-Marts consists of Detail and summary level tables with 100+ million records. These tables were each Partitioned by time periods. There were more than 5000 partitions

·         Designed and Implemented Archival Strategy, which archives data into historic tables/files when the current Fiscal period changes.

·         Implemented Incremental load strategy in ROLAP by creating temp tables on a daily basis and Exchanging them with the appropriate concerned Partitions and purging old partitions. Wrote PERL scripts to automate the processes.

·         Implemented strategy, which reduced the time taken to load ROLAP from 15 hrs to less than 1 hr.

·         Reduced the most complex query retrieval time from 45 min per query to less than 4 seconds by partitioning tables and making queries use iterator clause.
