and Software Experience
In late January, 1998 I began C. Rick
Spence, Inc. Business Computer Services after having just
completed 4 years with CHAMPS Software, Inc. in their
Software Engineering Department.
CHAMPS Software, Inc. is
worldwide supplier of Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS)
to some of the worlds largest and best-known companies. These included
Kodak of Canada, Boeing, Westinghouse, B.F. Goodrich, Goodyear, NASA, Kimberly-Clark,
Tokyo Electric, Euro Disney, Northern States Power, Wisconsin Electric
Power, and the City of Los Angeles. During this time I worked as CHAMPS
Client / Server Project Research Engineer working directly with many Microsoft,
Digital, and Sybase engineers on a CHAMPS Client / Server Visual C++ CMMS
Project. This project included the introduction of Windows NT Servers and
Workstations to the CHAMPS environment. In 1995 I was given the job of CHAMPS
Manager for Computer Operations. This job included purchase and setup of
Windows NT Servers, Windows NT Workstations, operation and maintenance
of DEC VAX Workstations and VAX Servers, and maintenance of the CHAMPS
Ethernet network with world-wide Remote Access to the Windows NT Servers.
I spent the last one and one half years as CHAMPS Database Systems Engineer,
Database Administrator, and Project Administrator for the new CHAMPS Client
/ Server Asset Management System project. This project uses PowerBuilder (32 bit) and ODBC 32 bit database connections to access data stored on
Sybase 10/11, Sybase Adaptive Server Anywhere, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server databases running
on Windows NT Servers. Prior to coming to CHAMPS Software in 1993, I was
employed as a Oracle programmer with CD Data Corporation of St.
Petersburg, Florida and as a Data Systems Consultant and Contractor for
the land sales division of the Chase Corporation of Hartford, CT.
