CSC offers worldwide data conversion capabilities to their clients in the US, Europe and UK whereby they handle the conversion of data from respective platforms to platforms that are part of CSC’s IP – these being platforms such as Cyber life, Vantage, and FutureFirst. The conversion methodologies used across these platforms all broadly follow the same path. This path involves areas such as:
• Conversion requirements gathering, scoping, planning, preparation and documentation
• Data mapping, coding, modification and data migration
• Various levels of testing; unit-, system-, regression- and user acceptance testing
• Trial conversions and actual conversions
• Post conversion support
I am part of the South African unit of the global team, who picks up on all aspects of the conversion lifecycle – using pre-defined methodologies. I work under the guidance of Conversions Project Managers which may be local or abroad. I am also be required to act as project lead on various projects as needed.
My responsibilities include the planning and implementation of CSC's B-BBEE strategy, predominantly focusing on Corporate Responsibility (CR), Learning and Development and Enterprise Development. I am responsible for managing CR projects throughout the project life cycle. This includes budgets, reporting and all related corporate communication.
