revitalize internal (inter-departmental) customers; created new internal customers (i.e., bringing new
corporate areas to implement technology solutions); and ran the product maintenance process for the
(internal) technology acquisition operation.
Made significant engineering contributions, including crisis management for civil service response and state communications network outage response systems for cable failure command and control, technical support in an emerging computing environment.
Developed a very early system for executive reports production, based on natural language oriented
syntax, to automatically generate SAS reports (statistical analysis system) from existing internal SAS
Designed and developed a system called PRODUCTS for automatic updates via the network of remote software “libraries” (i.e., computer file systems) across all NYNEX production systems (i.e., mainframe computing centers) in New York State. This solution was in a class similar to what we
now know as the Internet/Web solutions.
