As a Business Analyst for the last 5 years with JPMorgan Chase, my main areas of concentration were the gathering of critical business requirements and producing technical specifications for large scale projects. In this role, I orchestrated precise end to end designs which consistently surpassed expectations. The past year was extremely challenging since I worked on a project to convert and migrate all the Investment Bank's Business Units to a new change management system and platform. This project was successfully completed and the legacy systems were successfully retired.
In this role I was also responsible for performing gap analysis, coordinating and executing QA testing which included bug tracking and remediation, performing data mapping for system conversions, developing workflow design diagrams for the application development team, coordinating regression testing, creating and maintaining client documentation and providing subject matter expertise, training and guidance to less experienced staff members and other users of the system.
Prior to my current position as a Business Analyst, I was outsourced to Computer Sciences Corporation as a Project Manager for 8 years working on the JPMorgan account. I was originally hired at JPMorgan in 1986 where I held the position of System Analyst for 10 years. This role involved reviewing system architectures and providing solutions to complex issues with design and workflow.
