IT professional – Web Technologist

Hi, I’m Tony Cornejo. I work as a IT specialist in small businesses and publishing. I have successfully brought game changing solutions to the companies that I’ve worked for- leveraging technologies in network, cloud and application development.

Good solutions stem from a good understanding of the goal or problem and knowing how to apply technologies that are appropriate to the organization.
In my career I have been involved as a leader in providing good solutions.
Some Examples:
*Implemented Software as a Service for company email & ERP, decreasing the expenditures on hardware that quickly goes out of date and must be disposed.
*Proven track record of managing help desk and network administration duties including writing instructional manuals and holding training sessions with all levels of users.
*Vendor withheld source code to the Content Management System. I was able to develop and program a new interface that improved internal usability while also allowing the company to add new features.
*Company was unable to run reports off of legacy system. I worked with a team to setup a data transfer tool, I designed MS-SQL tables and programmatically automated a daily update so company could use Crystal Reports.
*Company wanted to open up US B2B site to accommodate new UK & Europe subsidiary. I took existing application and modified it to show pricing and route to the correct office based on user login and migrated new users from legacy business system into the new website.
