Senior Programmer/R&D IV. Designed, created, coded and supported systems for the enterprise and programming toolkits for other programmers in the enterprise. The savings to Countrywide doesn’t include what Countrywide earned because of what the gateways, MTAs, portals and toolkits enabled other programmers to implement. I was brought in to the Notes group to help and teach them how to create web 2.0 applications. The last project I worked on for Bank of America had an annual savings of around $400,000.00.

In the first four years of operation management said that CWInsider saved Countrywide over 30 million dollars.
Various Gateways and Lotus Notes Add-Ins – MSMQ and MQSERIES gateways to Lotus Notes and three SMS and Pager (SkyTel 1-Way, SkyTel 2-Way and TAP) gateways The gateways were able to dynamically change their configuration when configuration profiles where changed and do not require a restart to refresh their configuration. The pager gateways were created in 1998 and 1999 and ran reliably until they were discontinued in 2009. The first year use, they saved Countrywide around $1,000,000.00 then around $500,000.00 each year thereafter.

Mail Scout for Lotus Notes and cc:Mail – A server based rules server for email that filters and manages a user's inbox. I invented a language for email that allows creation of scripts that filter and manipulate email in a user's inbox. Once the language was created, I wrote an interpreter and pseudo compiler and created an object oriented data store that allows storage of containers that include variable length information. The client program used query by example forms to create rules for managing the user’s inbox. When I left Peloria there was a licensed user base of over 560,000 users.
Grand Central Pager Servers for SkyTel and TAP – Three pager gateways that allow users to send an email to a pager. In the case of SkyTel 2-Way to allow the pager user to reply to email messages sent to the pager. The SkyTel pager gateways sent messages via a socket server at SkyTel. If the IP connection fails it has the ability to fallback to a modem connection. The TAP pager gatway uses the Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol (TAP) via a modem connection to a Paging Terminal to send e-mail messages to user's alphanumeric pagers.
