(contract) In an agile environment, for the implementation of CCAR FRY14A for their flagship Federal submissions application utilizing FRY-9C, 14Q, FFIEC-031 dataset, and FFIEC-101 and 102 feed. Leveraged Genesis/Pearl data sources based on data dictionary attributes, valid values, and business purposes. Implemented internal and Fed defined edit checks, including syntax, validity, quality, inter-series, and intra-series for 1000s of rulesets. For this implementation, developed automation to convert Federal natural language requirements to a Boolean logic-based rule set used for this Flagship application. This automation decreased conversion and implementation time by as much as 70%, creating 100's of rules in seconds using REXX and SQL. As a Subject Matter Expert, I created user stories, business requirements documents, test cases, test scripts, and project tracking documentation for new and existing application implementations using Excel, Powerpoint, and Sharepoint.
