So can you tell us something about yourself; like what you do your brief background.
I’m a user experience architect at C.A Technologies Computer Associates and I’m based out of Lisle office which is a suburb of Chicago. I joined C.A about a year back; this April, I’ll finish an year. Before that I was a UX researcher cum engineer at the Motorola Mobility which for a while was a Google company but anyway - so from Motorola … At C.A what am doing is actually am part of the mainframe business unit and within that the whole mainframe unit is divided into about seven to eight different business lines and one of the business lines is they have this plethora of tools that manage all these different mainframe databases.
