Sr. Project Manager and Sr. Business AnalystThermo Fisher Scientific Life Technologies or Invitrogen
At Thermo Fisher Scientific working in the Digital Technology Delivery team, I work as Portfolio Manager, Project Manager and as a business analyst.
I am responsible for eCommerce Portfolio Management as the lead project manager of a $10M budget to relocate our enterprise data center that houses over 4k host systems ranging from ERP, CRM, Sales Tools, E-Commerce, and other back office applications to AWS cloud and our on premise corporate headquarters.
I recently closed out a project where I forecasted and maintained the budget of $2M, 36 employees, and 1 year duration to re-platform website search for our enterprise e-Commerce website search engine.
I delivered on-time and within budget.
Prior to this I owned the B2B channel operations and portfolio for 66% of our overall web revenue equating to $600M annually at the time.
As owner of the channel portfolio, I organized C & B level summits that defined the roadmap for the year, half or quarter's activities across many functional groups.
Within the portfolio management I established processes and policies for establishing and obtaining budget, setting priorities for the projects that were initialized along with operational enhancements and defect resolution or continuous improvement.
I ensure the business case justifies our spend, has measurable performance metrics to ensure projects delivered are tracking to the forecasted returns or savings for the organization.
I produce business and functional requirement documents using UML, context diagrams and use case diagrams.
I have used DMAIC Six Sigma approaches, Continuous Improvement, Iterative, Waterfall and Agile practices to manage SDLC projects and programs.
I produce waterfall project plans as well as Agile story cards and sprints as my role as a project manager.
I present project charters, forecast and track cross functional budgets and schedule for assets, travel, vendors engagement, licensing, on-shore and off-shore resources.
A cadence of capacity planning for both internal full time employees, temps, and contractors across functional teams like ERP, eCommerce, CRM architects/developers and quality assurance resources.
I have coordinated and conducted stakeholder meetings, touch-base meetings, sprints, summits/strategy/tactical meetings, follow ups, deep dives and status/ROI report outs all where applicable for multimillion dollar projects and operational activities.

Sr & Staff EngineerQUALCOMM
Architected, designed, and implemented systems for large Enterprise projects such as Security Management, CRM, Supply Chain, Employee Management, Issue Tracking, Portal Development, and Document Management.
I managed resources and deliverables for aggressive timelines.
Leading implementation efforts and mentored development staff in best practices, design patterns and principles.
Key player for recommendations and interviewing of candidates for permanent and contract positions (domestic and foreign).
Reviewed quality of deliverables produced by external consulting firms, advising as necessary.
Key Project Accomplishments: Gathered and refined business requirements, translated business requirements into functional requirements including use-cases.
Using Java along with Business Objects implemented and delivered an on-time and on-budget sales tool to track company product presale information needed for marketing and supply chain.
The data captured by the tool identifies the target market, the operator, the infrastructure that the product will be utilized in, what version of hardware and software are a best fit based on the needs of the customer driven by data entered into the tool, the form factors of the manufactured product, the geographical location of the targeted market, sales person information and weekly status of the person that is working the account, customer contact information and other data, and many other aspects that assist our sales, marketing, and business analysts to make future company road map decisions.
Using the popular Documentum (WDK and DFC) Framework I designed automation for many aspects of document management and B2B needs.
Our products have vast amounts of documentation for many different audiences and paradigms such as user manuals, technical specifications, testing procedures and outcomes, as well as some aspects of how to manufacture the products that are designed by Qualcomm.
My system manages the security and audit information around these documents, the lifecycle of the documentation, the workflows associated with the documentation and the notifications sent to Customers, Foundries and Engineers.
This is an internal tool as well as a B2B solution.
To implement this tool I utilized many additional frameworks such as Struts, JSTL, Tiles, Oracle Identity Management, Log4J, WebServices, XML to name a few.
Using Informatica, Business Objects, Oracle 10g with XMLDB I architected and designed a system that extracts data from our engineering design tools, organizes it into 3rdNF ODS, and then ETLs into a Star Schema Data Warehouse.
I report the results of Qualcomm design into a library of reports that are used as a interface for our foundries, lead designers and company executives.
This tool is said to have the ROI of "the business itself".
This tool has saved Qualcomm many millions of dollars by exposing design anomalies that would not have been uncovered until our product was fabricated and tested or released to market.
The tool was so important and popular that it has spun off a new business separate but partnered with Qualcomm.
