  3. 3. 813.368.6180 » ● Built a 10-person team to perform implementations, mi- grations, custom programs, training, and problem resolu- tion. ● Focal point between the customer and internal resources. ● Created a custom project plan to manage project activities and timeline. ● Managed a risk management plan along with a contingen- cy plan. ● Supported project resources by obtaining whatever they needed to complete their tasks including negotiating assistance with other business units. ● Managed project teams cost, quality, delivery time frame, profitability measurements and schedule. ● Assisted team by researching and developing custom training materials for the Legal end-user training. ● Held weekly status calls and delivered weekly status reports documenting accomplishments, planned activi- ties, issues, action items, key milestones, and concerns. ● Developed separate customer financial report to identify billable hours, fixed price milestones and expenses. ● Managed Issues and Action Item logs throughout the life of the project. ● Created change requests and statement of works for new customer requests. Worked closely with Sales on all contract requests. ● Upgraded content management (CM) environment and installed four new software solutions.

The project progress was closely managed and potential software issues were escalated to facilitate immediate assistance. ● Lined up design, development, product architects and other experts, as needed, to assist with resolving product problems during implementation. ● Utilized escalation management and key management across business units to minimize time resolving urgent software issues. ● Factored in buffer to address delays in software releases. ● Email migration between two archive systems had not been done before. Negotiated assistance from key migration specialists to advise us. ● Negotiated with Sales special funding to cover resource costs during migration tool defect issues. ● Successfully migrated all customer production data. ● Freed up considerable customer storage used for old email archive. New archival software required 70% less space than the old email solution storage required. ● Overcame technological limitations to successfully develop custom tools to convert old archive emails to new archive format. ● Discovered new capacity planning and installation requirements that should be discussed in pre- sales phase to bypass potential issues. ● The customer legal staff readily accepted the new archive and search/discovery tools as it shortened their discovery process and provided higher quality results. ● Key customer IT managers spoke at IBM’s annual conference held in Las Vegas, 2010 on their positive experiences and overall savings achieved as a result of implementing this new solution. Sessions were standing room only. ● Client became a formal reference for IBM so potential customers interested in this solution could contact them about the details of this solution.
