Describe your success in your professional life and achievements

R3S is In-Flight duty free sales system in Emirates Group IT which is used to manage more than 400 duty free carts per day in Dubai, Auckland and Singapore. This system is integrated with 11 other applications in Emirates Group including Oracle ERP Finance, Inventory, HR., Flight, Crew, Credit Card authentication, Credit Card billing etc.
As the only person in the team, I was responsible for designing & developing the complete architecture. I was also responsible for interfacing with few other key systems.
