I was involved in the Employment Service Contract (ESC3) project in this
department. The department is on a strategic direction to migrate to Microsoft .NET platform
from a legacy system. I was involved as an Architect
in this process. This system replaces the Mainframe 3270 screens with Smart
Client and ASP.NET implementations. I was responsible for
implementing the .NET assembly object model of the complete application.
Here some features of the application. XML web services are used to exchange data
between government departments and other extrenal data sources. I was the technical lead
for the DEWR - Centrelink Special Task Force that optimized the web services
communication between the departments. (Requested by the Cabinet minister at Parliament.)
