It was a web based intranet project for the group insurance division which provided the customer returns calculation.
This project was divided into 3 modules :
I was the business analyst responsible for the event processing and reconciliation module
The event module was a data dump which feeds the core engine module where the calculations are performed.
Data from 13 different mainframe servers is provided to GEAR which in turn provides data to the event processing module.
The reconciliation module reconciles the source and target data basically from GEARS to event processing and event processing to core engine modules.
