I joined DXC (formerly Molina Healthcare MMS) in early September 2010 as a Database Administrator Lead for the MHI-MMS DBA Group. I was involved with the 2.5 years major application and infrastructure upgrade and data center migration of the West Virginia system. On completion of this successful project, I then was transferred to the DMG team as an ETL (Informatica / SSIS) developer in mid 2012. West Virginia had a secondary application DDI upgrade to 4.7 QNXT, which I was pulled in to assist as well. In early 2015, I filled the positioned as the DMG Data Architect and continued to assist with DBA and ETL work as needed. Known for my infrastructure depth, I was also added the responsibility of TechOps Lead while still holding the sole Data Architect position. As TechOps Lead I acted as the liaison between the business units and the infrastructure team. We used the Agile methodology to incorporate an efficient alignment between these 2 groups. Due to this, we were able to smoothly implemente a DevOps model, which led to successful Go-Lives for the company.
Before joining Molina Healthcare, I had previously worked as a Sr. DBA Lead for sizable companies such as First American Title, Lockheed Martin and the County of Orange. In the many years as a DBA Lead, I’ve had the opportunity to learn Infrastructure from a Windows Physical and Virtualization standpoint, understand the Storage concept, Networking, and the flow of how Applications work. In my mid 20s, I also owned and operatated my own Concrete Construction Company and became pretty good and pouring out and replacing home driveways.
DXC Technology is the largest end-to-end IT services firm in the world that was the combination of Computer Science Corporation (CSC) and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services (HPE). Two months after CSC and HPE merged, they acquired Tribridge along with Concerto Cloud Services, the 125-employee cloud-of-clouds hosting provider.
As with all acquisitions, many duplicate processes and procedures need to be integrated. With COVID, pressures from stockholders drove the company to begin workforce reductions while in the process of streamlining those processes and procedures.
Once the overall organizational portfolio is clarified and the processes and procedures are hammered out, I am sure DXC Technology will be in a great position to provide all employees a great place to work.
After retiring, I accepted a remote position at DXC Technology in October 2016. I was employed there until March 2019, at witch time I was released (with severance) due to company restructuring. During my time of employment I found a feeling of confusion among many fellow employees. Generally, it was neither a positive or completely negative job experience. I understand it is a multinational enterprise and I was only exposed to a small portion.
