· Establish firewalls so firms and networks could communicate without breaching security.
· Configured Network ports to allow applications and data to be shared by each company.

PC Environment and NT Infrastructure

· Managed moves of PCs and servers, migrated data, and implemented application solutions as departments were moved among ten locations in New York.
· Designed and operated the PC desktop and application integration lab.
· Engineered a PC desktop to standardize four supported desktops of the combined firms into one common desktop platform.

Global Application Integration
· Enabled applications to be packaged and rolled out simultaneously to end-users.

Key Deliverables
· Client server application to track integration-related issues.
· Optimization and maintenance of database structure content and performance issues to ensure accurate and immediate delivery of data.
· Application integration methodologies to accommodate current and future standards.
· Core systems and user acceptance testing of packaged products, including measures against performance and functionality benchmarks established by developers and users.
· Automated delivery of each application to all domestic and international sites.
