The Web Portal of THE REAL Keith Viverette, Sr.

Yours Truly



I am the designer and developer of a web-enabled system written in PHP and HTML. This required the set-up of an Apache HTTP server and the efficient use of development tools within the company's existing ERP system for the creation of SQL tables and system control panels. The entire project required out-of-the-box thinking since the existing corporate language base and ERP systems were unable to meet the needs of this project. Additionally, LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl) technologies were not part of the company's existing technological infrastructure at the time, so my use of them constituted the introduction of the technologies to the company.

Cost Saver

I created a proposal with cost-to-benefits analysis detailing the need to move developers from RPG III and RPG/400 to RPG IV and Java, starting first with a migration to RPG IV in the ILE environment on an IBM System i. The cost benefits included shorter development time, greater developer productivity, lower per-project costs, and positioning the development staff for an eventual move to more modern, flexible, and cost-effective languages. The proposal was approved, clearing the way for me to order RPG IV training for all developers and thus move the staff to RPG IV as the language standard for new application development.


I managed the Year-2000 compliance and testing effort for MTV, Showtime Networks and Viacom Corporate divisions to a successful conclusion. The Y2K compliance project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule. I also functioned as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the Y2K effort, providing expert technical assistance, guidance, and overview of all documentation submitted for approval and archiving as proof of Y2K compliance.

Award Winner

I strive to be both technically proficient and customer oriented. As such, my efforts have netted me multiple nominations for corporate awards. My commitment to excellence has resulted in two wins for technical excellence and customer focus, and I took home awards in 1998, 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2016.


Eccentric Entries

I am the creator and writer of Eccentric Entries, a blog of my life experience and interests. Its content is diverse and sometimes references delicate matters, yet the blog remains wholly apolitical and non-confrontational in nature.
