The Role:
Work in a dynamic and collaborative team to replace the existing Operational Data Storage System (ODSS) platform. The current ODSS is a bespoke ecosystem that was developed to maintain and report on the ongoing quality standards, and volume license agreements that meet and exceed Regulatory and Community expectations. ODSS has iteratively grown over recent decades to a cluster of 18 applications; and with technology having significantly changed over 25 years, this bespoke ecosystem is obsolete with a significantly diminished maintenance and support capability.
