While employed at Intermodulair Suriname N.V. I co-designed and developed a custom application for the Particuliere Ziektekosten Verzekering (PZS) (Health Insurance) department of Self Reliance N.V., one of the largest insurance companies in Suriname. This application is based on a client-server model where users access data stored on a central database (SQL Server) through the client application. The application features automated procedures for nearly all administrative tasks and calculations on that department, detailed and complex real-time reporting, including management reports and detailed interactive help. Technologies used include Microsoft Visual C/C++ .NET, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) and Crystal Reports.
The success of the PZS application was one of the important achievements that helped Intermodulair to get an even bigger project, arguably one of the most ambitious software development projects in Suriname up until that time (and as far as I know up until now), namely the development of an integrated software system for the whole company linking all departments together.
I designed the complete software model for that integrated administrative software system for Self Reliance N.V. Based on a client-server architecture, this system includes a custom developed applications server, several system management tools and at least 5 client applications for several of the major departments in the company featuring tight security. I also did parts of the analysis for the functional requirements, and co-designed the database. The system is capable of running both on Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2 without any modifications. Tools for security, authentication, user and group management, application rights and policy management are also included. These tools enable Self Reliance’s IT department to easily manage the entire system from a single location. Apart from designing the system I also developed the application server, all the management tools and did some development on the client applications (the new version of the PZS (Health Insurance) application was developed entirely by me).
Technologies used include Microsoft Visual C/C++ .NET, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), Windows Sockets (TCP/IP), Cryptography (AES, SHA) and Crystal Reports.
After I left Intermodulair in 2004 development and maintenance continued by other programmers at Intermodulair. This system is still being used today (January 2017).
