1/2001 - 10/2002
Technical Analyst

•        As a Technical Analyst in the Systems Management group, I was responsible for the evaluation, recommendation, configuration, installation and
implementation of tools for system monitoring, monitoring the availability, performance and capacity of multiple systems and platforms. I was involved in
Project Management to insure complete monitoring of new systems architectures.

•        Major accomplishment: I was challenged with the task of developing a tool to monitor near "real- time" performance of the primary Web-based
application provided to our clients - providing an icon on Hewitt support personnel's workstation to pop a report of "current" activity. I was not told at
the time the request was made, that management did not think it could be done. I accomplished the goal by combining an MQ-Series resource with a Java
resource along with UNIX shell scripts I developed and displaying the resulting report using Tivoli Desktop tools. The tool continues to be used at Hewitt
to monitor activity generated by clients such as IBM, HP, EDS and over 140 other large-scale users.

•        Utilized UNIX administration skills in the development of Tivoli architectures.
Much of my time at Hewitt involved the use of Tivoli software products, Framework, T/EC, Distributed Monitoring, TWSM and TSM. I also received some
exposure to the SiteSeer/SiteScope web monitoring products from Mercury Interactive. (products originally from Freshwater Software)
