Hanabal Khaing began his career as a Unix Administrator on the Dec Alpha system, but soon transitioned to Oracle DBA which led to on the job training for Data Modeling. Soon after mastering relational data modeling by combining military and civilian encryption training and technology with advanced relational data design, Hanabal Khaing created his first application using Fortran in 1991 and later remade the application using Java. Hanabal's first application was a web site program with dynamic content and a database for customer relationship management. Soon after making the CRM application, the first commercial sales were made to local small businesses and finally to Bank of America in 1998.
Hanabal's primary responsibility was to aid in the Nations Bank and Bank of America Merger using data governance, data modeling, web design, and updates to legacy systems such as LiveWire. Soon after the Bank of America contract, Hanabal was hired to create, design, and/or repair applications and data models for HP, Sony, Nortel, MetLife, Univision, Perot Systems Healthcare & HIPAA certified Digital Claims, several insurance companies, several banks, and several confidential government organizations. Hanabal has previously held government security clearances and is clearable for any classified work nationally and internationally.
Hanabal is currently working on Business Intelligence for all sectors with a concentration on customizations for the Banking and Healthcare sectors, which includes HEDIS 2017.
Although Hanabal's primary focus is creating new software, he continues to assist major corporations and governments with data governance, data repair, data recovery, data model redesign, ETL, and performance tuning in addition to architecture re-design. Most of all he has the wisdom and experience, as outlined below, to run a successful IT project. Hanabal specializes in performing root cause analysis and rescuing projects in "impossible, at or near complete failure" situations specifically because they have become common for critical government and business organizations. According to Gartner, a research firm which publishes statistics on IT project success and failure rates, up to 62 percent of IT projects fail, go over budget and time, and/or fail to meet all requirements. Additionally about 25 percent are canceled due to budget overrun or time overrun. Less than 12 percent of IT projects are totally successful, on time, and at or below budget. For ERP IT projects, nearly 75 percent fail and about 25 percent are canceled, leaving a less than 1 percent success rate most years. Even IBM has ERP project failures.
Recently, IBM was fired by the State of Pennsylvania because the project was more than $60 million dollars over budget, with a total cost that was nearly $170 million dollars, and more than three years late! IBM also made the common mistake of cutting labor costs by hiring over 600 workers and H1B visa workers while ignoring their experience level, differences in international education systems, and differences in culture which dictates the definition of what is quality work. Additionally, because the workers are on temporary visas, they were usually off the project in less than one year, which prevents continuity experience.
IBM also failed to analyze the political objectives behind the H1B law, which was created by George Bush from a President Nixon era policy that was meant to attack the American people. By the time Nixon resigned, it was clear that he was mentally ill and under the impression that the American people, such as the Kent State student protesters, some of whom who were killed by US troops in cold blood for using their right to free speech and assembly, minorities, hippies, etc. were his enemies. His objective was to eliminate jobs for people who could vote to keep them, "out of his way." Nixon also forced state universities to charge money for education although they were and are well funded enough to provide free education. Student debt prevents most students from having time off from work to protest anything. Multiple systems of education funding and loan fraud are also still in place in the American education system.
However, Nixon's policies are still in effect and his unimplemented policies are still being implemented despite negative impacts on business, such as IBM's 170 million dollar failure. Obviously, one cannot implement a complex IT project with temporary workers from a country with up to 74 percent illiteracy in some areas and an education system which is substandard and combined with a by-birth cast system. Additionally, many of the H1B visa workers have fake credentials supported by firms that specialize in verifying fake credentials. IBM should have done its due diligence and collected the proper project intelligence and reconnaissance before proceeding with the project. In business, IT projects are no longer just about IT. Many things can affect a project.
Major contributors to those failures are a culture of bending to bullying in the work place which creates unnecessary complexity. Lower level and middle management employees are allowed to pick and choose technologies they like for emotional reasons despite the needs of the firm they serve. They are also allowed to discriminate based on factors outside of professionalism in hiring and promotion practices. For example, most US companies have a nearly 90 to 100 percent white, heterosexual, male, Christian management staff although 78 percent of the population is either female and/or some type of minority. Corporations are also trying to fulfill staffing needs using H1B visa workers, as in the aforementioned IBM failure, from countries with far poorer education systems when compared to the US education system, which also needs significant improvement.
Managers have also chosen to allow over 500,000 IT positions to go un-staffed rather than implement a diversity policy combined with job training programs. Managers are also not skilled at standing up to bullying in the workplace. Instead of firing racist employees or employees who attack the most qualified people in order to secure their own job security, managers often join in with the attack on women, minorities, and elite employees as if they are still in elementary school or high school. Employees often escalate such issues to upper levels of management only to find that upper levels of management has even greater issues, poor long-term planning skills, and even less courage. Consequently, most companies, up to 90 percent by some estimates, have a staff of mostly discriminatory, difficult, incompetent people instead of a professional staff of highly skilled people. Additionally, many companies hire third parties to deal with those problems using classes that are usually labeled, "How to Deal with Difficult People in the Workplace." Those classes are also staffed with people who cannot stand up to bullying who tell the victims of discrimination, harassment, and in some cases rape and assault in the workplace that they are the problem. The real solution is that each company needs at least one HR manager that will identify and fire difficult people after documenting their short comings and in some cases crimes for the good of the entire firm.
Mathematically, even if one tried to staff 100 percent of ALL jobs with the male half of the majority ethnic group, it could not be done. For example, in the US, white men are about 50 percent of the population. That's over 160 million people. However, 24 percent are under age 18, 14.9 percent are over the retirement age and may not have to work. About 8 percent have mental or genetic disorders that MAY prevent them from doing IT work and in some cases any other kind of work. That leaves about 56 to 60 percent or about 96 million people. The US has over 152,111,000 jobs. In case you didn't notice, that means that 40 percent of working-aged Americans are unemployed or underemployed despite the artificial government statistics. Most of the existing jobs are in service, construction, and manufacturing and most people's skills are also in service, construction, and manufacturing. Although there are over 3.1 million jobs in IT, most of those jobs are still related to newspaper related information technology, which is mostly dominated by the most populous ethnic group. That leaves a massive number of women and minorities available for the IT sector. Job training programs may be the only solution to the problem as universities are very slow to change degree curriculums to match business needs. However, despite the facts and the math, many firms still have diversity issues and no plans to change.
Additionally, most people have very little understanding about how the economy works. Most have a communist, socialist, or animalistic view of the economy and believe that jobs are finite and that they must keep some groups of people out of jobs so that specific groups can have jobs. However, that mentality is severely flawed because it does not take into account that 12 percent of every population and every group are entrepreneurs. A single entrepreneur can create 10 to more than 100,000 jobs. Therefore, the entrepreneurs from any group would always create a minimum 20 percent surplus in jobs. However, most of the 12 percent are prevented from becoming successful because 78 percent are female or some type of minority. According to the EEOC job, sex, race, and housing discrimination is still very strong despite the negative economic effects. There are also those in society who are so mentally ill that they would harm themselves to keep a minority or a woman from succeeding. This behavior has also create a silent war within the workplace between groups. Such wars have gone unresolved by upper levels of management.
Although most American and global technology is based upon technology created by American immigrants and minorities such as Nicola Tesla, Granville Woods, and Lewis Latimer, who creating the first working light bulb, and the current immigrant and minority population has the ability and capacity to create an additional 36 million jobs in America alone, most of the global community turns a blind eye to workplace discrimination, racism, war for profit, and even ethnic cleansing. If hate speech, hate groups, discrimination, and protest of civil rights for some groups, such as women's reproductive rights, were made illegal and punishable by serious prison sentences, the female and minority community could create 177 million additional jobs even if the 12 percent only created 10 jobs each using pure creativity and experience. The size of the US economy could triple in a very short amount of time, but those entrepreneurs need a place to start working. America remains one of the few "developed" western nations in which hate speech, racist mass incarceration, prison slavery, false war profits, and terrorist groups that target women, minorities, and people with disabilities are legal and commonly used to win elections, despite the enormous economic cost, which not only keeps the US from generating more than 36 trillion per year in economic activity, but costs over 80 billion dollars / year for mass incarceration, and up to two trillion dollars / year in tax dollars spent on military equipment and manufactured wars, not to mention the massive health care cost for wounded veterans which is expected to be more than one trillion dollars, in addition to the trillion dollar nuclear weapons upgrade.
Events such as the destruction of the North Carolina and Tulsa Oklahoma "Black Wall Streets" and the murder of over 1000 citizens, with a concentration on black and Native American men, by police annually are a threat to national security, business profits, and future stability because is prevents more than half of the population from succeeding and creating jobs. America remains at only about 60 of its economic capacity because 78 percent of its population suffers some sort of often government sponsored discrimination, institutionalized racism, and public discrimination which often has no penalty. If America ever loses its economic superiority, it's military superiority will soon follow, leaving the nation open to conquest by a stronger nation or union of nations. Conquest is not usually militarily accomplished in modern times, but it is accomplish through economic dominance, exploitation, slavery, prostitution, pedophilia, and other atrocities that a nation cannot resist due to lack of economic power. There are many poor nations in which parents are forced to sell their children into degrading service for food. Currently at least 25 percent of police force activity is dedicated to "hiding" prostitution and the homeless to cover up the fact that America has an actual 40 percent unemployment rate that is mostly spread among women, and minorities, but has also begun to affect middle aged white men due to discrimination against people over 40, which affected the election of Donald Trump, despite Trump being part of the problem by spreading more racism, xenophobia, and using H1B and illegal immigrant labor below market labor rates, which father harm the economy by concentrating wealth into the hands of a few.
Because most politicians do not have long-term analytical abilities, instead of taking steps to reduce discrimination, they routinely create laws making discrimination mandatory and/or legal, such as the North Carolina HB2 law which discriminates against all minorities while public pretending to be only about bathrooms. The law essentially makes discrimination legal by making the statutes of limitation so short that no one can get a case through the court system. Hanabal Khaing strongly denounces the HB2 law and similar laws in other states and has refused to work with or for such state governments.
The lack of will to enforce policies, and in some cases civil rights laws, leads to massive amounts of IT architecture complexity which leads to project failure. For example, a single firm can have a Microsoft platform, Linux, UNIX, and a Novel platform at the same time. Additionally, they may have IBM Cognos, SAP, and Oracle Applications, and PeopleSoft, all of which are software packages that do the same thing. On the database side of the design, some firms will do an analysis and find that their needs are either met by Oracle or IBM DB2 on a UNIX or LINUX platform, but the lower level staff will implement Microsoft SQL Server databases because it seems easier to use. Some managers, who often have no diversity training, will attempt to move to an easy solution rather than hire a woman or minority in many cases. Since women and minorities are 78 percent of the population, there is also a 78 percent chance that the person with the required skills for a project will be female or some type of minority, especially since women have a highter college graduation rate and minorities have higher natural innovation and creativity rates. However, easy solutions are usually also the least scalable and least secure system with the most "phantom" issues. All of those mistakes are usually made without a Sr. Data Architect, Sr. Data Analyst, and without a Sr. Data Modeler and very few people in IT know the difference between those roles and the importance of having dedicated resources for each role in addition to a Database Administrator, which is also a different role with a different skill set.
Eventually, most firms start to buy third-party data analysis tools such as Tableau to try to compensate for data issues and poor data structure design, but find that no tool can compensate for poor or lack of design. Additionally, most firms try to substitute code developers for database administrators and data modelers. That usually multiplies the issues and makes failure far more likely. The reason that those mistakes are made is because most managers are designed educationally for manufacturing and not IT. In manufacturing, one can subsitute one person into another job temporarily and if one has a project that is over budget or off schedule, one can simply increase the number of people to compensate. However, none of those decisions are correct for IT management.
Gartner also indicates that through 2018, 90 percent of organizations will lack a postmodern application integration strategy.
Hanabal has determined that the critical areas that nearly all corporations and governments need to focus on is Data Governance, Data Modeling, Encrypted Data Security, On-the-job training, Professional Interviewing skills and practical exercises, not certification testing which usually has nothing to do with day-to-day operations, within HR, and the implementation of Diversity Policies. Hanabal has honed his skills accordingly and stands ready to assist you with your project.
