Senior Software Engineer
Years in IT—
My first mainframe job—
I thoroughly enjoyed my mainframe course work at Northern Illinois University (NIU). I can’t underestimate the lasting impression I had from teachings of some of brilliant professors at NIU. As part of curriculum we developed a Student Operating System (SOS) using simulator that demonstrates various MVS internal architectural concepts. I joined BMC Software in 2005 after my graduation. My very first assignment was to rename the Mainview product from OS/390 to z/OS. It was fun researching various modules for name change. Since then I lead several projects on Main view for z/OS, CMF Monitor, Sysprog Services product lines. More recently I am working on Intelligent Capping for zEnterprise (iCap) product which optimizes MLC cost. I hold one granted and two pending mainframe patents.
My favorite mainframe memory—
I always derived pleasure working in the mainframe world and my recent project iCap is no exception. As a mainframer, you would love the opportunities you get to see on such a project because you:
- Get to research thoroughly on various exciting mainframe components
- Get patents for your invention
- Get to work in a rapid environment
- Are honored for successful launch of the product.
