Julie Porter

Senior Technical Project Administrator

Connecticut


Julie began her IT career working on a mainframe for the UK Ministry of Defense, developing in Assembler. Progressing to Oracle software, she was part of a team that designed, built and maintained the Royal Air Force Logistics Supply System.

Her next move was to IFS UK, as a developer and technical consultant. During her time at IFS UK she also mentored new developers.

She transferred to the US, initially as a developer, progressing to Technical Solution Manager for upgrade projects, being involved from pre-study phase through to successful implementation. As part of this role she worked with onshore and offshore resources, on such activities as estimating, creating formal statements of work, planning, scheduling, developing through to delivery. She was the technical point of contact between departments and project team members, both internally and externally, working to achieve delivery requirements and expectations to meet cost, revenue and quality levels.

Over her almost 22 years at IFS, she worked on many projects, including national and multinational, ITAR and non-ITAR customers across many industries, and has worked with versions from IFS 99 to Apps10.

More recently Julie performed full project management for several upgrade projects. She also performed post-implementation audits to identify process improvements and cost savings.
