Directed the integration effort for extended supply chain suite (i2), building multiple near real time interfaces to legacy systems. Architected and designed XML messaging approach utilizing WebsphereMQ and WebsphereMQ Message Broker to transform and deliver transactional data between CICS applications and Windows-based supply chain module. Designed solution and led cross functional team in development of custom mainframe and distributed adapters. Solution packaged and transmitted CICS transaction data in XML messages to the distributed system adapter which called appropriate CORBA API exposed by supply chain suite. Success and failure messages were captured in queue-based logging system for analysis and remediation. Five interfaces were successfully developed in parallel to meet 3½-month delivery window.
