2009 till now

  • New LOGON "one size fits all" for internal and outsourcing LPARS
  • Versioning for sources, loads e.g. for all employees. Supports various test environments for projects using Endevor

2005 - 2008

  • Ensure coordinated production phase-in of new program versions for various mainframe sites using Endevor. Automation of process flows.
    • Loadmodules
    • Compiler listings
    • Documentations
    • DB2 elements
    • PSBs, DBDs
    • etc.
  • Support System Operating. Supervision z/OS, IMS/DC, IMS/DB, DB2 etc.
  • Develope automatic functions for several production flows.


  • Support System Operating. Supervision z/OS, IMS/DC, IMS/DB, DB2 etc.
  • Implementation of software for the check of the bank parameter data of the HBCI converter (Home banking).
  • Develope automatic functions for SMS/HSM

  • Implementation of software for the check of the bank parameter data of the HBCI converter (Home banking).
  • Construction of tools for the check of statistics.


  • Migration of program constituents (Sourcen, load modules etc.) to Endevor.
  • Implementation of software for the check of the bank parameter data of the HBCI converter (Home banking).
  • Preliminary Investigation for a new method of versioning (ENDEVOR with DB2 as platform for the administration of Meta data). Estimated effort: 2,5 man years.


  • Adjustments to central data supply within HBCI (customer specific modifications to the converter).
  • Generation of a dialog menu for the maintenance of customer specific parameters.
  • Modification of a tool for automatic generation of program documentation based on the source code.

1997 - 2001

  • Restoration of a version management system with split site development (2 locations) and split site production (4 locations) under ENDEVOR used for administration of:
    • Sources
    • Load Modules
    • Compile Listings
    • DB2 Elements
    • PSBs, DBDs
    • Link Options
    • Objects
    • etc
  • Development of adequate user surfaces using REXX and ISPF, separated processing (Batch, TSO, Auto-Restart-Method).
  • Development of exchange method for load modules, sources etc. between cooperative IT-Centres.
  • Training of ca. 250 employees.
  • First and Second Level Support for applications programmers regarding problems with the version management and MVS in general.


  • Adjustment of host applications following a redesign of peripheral surfaces for loan securities (Cobol, DB2, IMS/DC).


  • Development of check routines to identify Y2K-problematic source codes (also SWT Generate).

1994 - 1995

  • Re-training of 45 production operators after reorganisation in the company, Elementary PC-DOS, OS/2, LAN, PC hardware, MVS, programming logic, structure charts, programming (Cobol, REXX).

    The re-trained employees got placed in the departments Second Level Support, Quality Assurance and Applications Programming.

1989 - 1993

  • Re-training of ca. 200 production operators due to exchange of the operating system (BS1000 -> MVS).
