<![CDATA[Charles (IT Contractor)]]> Charles (IT Contractor)

My IT career spans about 40 years and has focused on IBM's S/3x/AS400 platforms. Initially, I started out in in the technical area holding programming and systems analyst positions. After about 8 years, I moved into IT management and worked as a manager and then director at medium-sized manufacturing companies. This went on for 23 years. The last 8 years has seen me back in a technical role - doing contract work on legacy systems (AS400) and PHP development for data-driven business applications. I hold both technical and managerial degrees - ABS, BBA, MSA and have held many certifications for project management (PMP), IT Audit and Security (CISA, CISM).
Was able to implement a complete ERP system in 4 months earning "User of the Year" awards in the process from the vendor. The new system saved the company thousands of dollars and improved on-time delivery to 98%. I was the project leader.
Proposed and installed a new AS400 system for a company that was using old technology that wouldn't allow new software implementations or effective daily response time. This led to implementing a new ERP Systems at 9 sites and effective use of new technologies such as bar coding and direct machine data collection on the shop floor.
Led company s (22 sites, 1,000 accounts) move to one hosted email provider. Did research, wrote and presented proposal, negotiated contracts/SLA, and oversaw project implementation (4 months).
