Projects/Activities

Web development & support for PwC US online marketing team, PwC Global and PwC UK

Development of web projects that includes intensive Javascript usage, JQuery, SVG interaction and animations. Some of these projects are benchmark tools and small surveys with animated charts (almost always Highcharts charts). Other projects have complex interfaces with SVG maps with different layers of information over it. Those complex solutions usually interact with other page elements, so most of the time they are a mix of SVG , JQuery , Raphaël all together glued by Javascript. As this kind of projects are client side and usually involve some kind of external data, they are based in JSON data files. This data files may be rendered as a chart or in some cases, binded to HTML elements through KnockoutJS.

The system is based on two main modules:

  1. the public site, available to most partners and managers from most south american countries, allow them to analyze their business management data in a series of drill-down reports. It also provides an advanced clients/deals search engine and a proposal fees calculator. This site has a strong security schema based on roles, so the access to data is defined according to the user's role under the premise that each user must have access only to the data of his/her responsibility. Users have at least one role by default for all engagement partners and managers. Users that have more than one role are able to switch between them on the site home page. The reports are displayed for each chosen role, allowing him/her to concentrate the attention on that of his/her interest at the time.
  2. a back-end application which is used to normalize the data entered by the participating countries. It provides data quality management tools and access control list management, among others. The database is based on each client's project/job initially stored in their local accounting systems and then exported to a file to be synchronized with the main system (using the backend application) (ASP.NET, Oracle 10).

Twitter Cache

Requirement elicitation, design and implementation of a service that supports an internal cache for Twitter widgets on PwC sites.
