90/hr OpenText/EDI Upgrade Consultant. 4 Months. 100% Telecommute Contract. Richardson, TX. (L-3793) (C)


Are you a OpenText/EDI Consultant?  Have a history of helping clients migrate EDI from on-premise solutions to the cloud?  Worked to resolve partner/mapping migration/upgarde issues? Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, the end-client needs someone with 3-5 years of experience in OpenText EDI including roles where they led migration from on-premise to the cloud (ideally Azure).  So someone that has supported an existing solution isn't sufficient (need exposure to migration tasks/upgrades).  Ideal candidates will have worked w/ BizLink and/or Application Integrator.  Currently all resources are working remotely due to COVID so resources can start 100% remote but they need to be able to come onsite for the first day (their cost) to get setup, badged, etc.   Once the end client determines its safe to return to work in the office resources will be expected to be onsite full time.

So, if this sounds interesting, APPLY TODAY!!!

    02/09/21 18:45 PM . Tim Bauer. Client confirms closing on this. No hires. Might reopen later.

    02/08/21 19:41 PM . Tim Bauer. No action likely till mid March on this (if at all). Client still trying to nail down budget/scope.

    02/04/21 15:28 PM . Tim Bauer. Continue to hold. Not closed but no updates coming. So not sure if this is moving forward or not.

    01/28/21 14:45 PM . Tim Bauer. Continue to hold. Agent did screen a candidate of ours this week that was pretty solid. So probably will close if they don't move on him.

    01/14/21 13:44 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going (client asked for clarification on one of our active submissions). Still heavily focused on someone w/ AI exposure specifically around setting it up and/or upgrade (lead roles).

    01/07/21 15:10 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    01/07/21 15:10 PM . Tim Bauer. Still on hold. Waiting for feedback on one candidate we have in front of team.

    12/24/20 14:55 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going. Client is on break till 1/4.

    12/17/20 18:23 PM . Tim Bauer. Per agent -- look for candidates who have done Application Integrator version upgrade by themselves and experienced data migration issues related to Maps and Partner configurations. BizLink/TrustedLink upgrade/migration experience is nice to have. Key is, candidate must have done this work hands-on in earlier engagements. We are preferably looking for someone who has done this upgrade/migration to cloud VMs using Linux. But we could adjust if same work was done on-premise.

    12/14/20 18:35 PM . Tim Bauer. Update skills to focus on Application Integrator aspect of OpenText (acquired from GXS in 2014). Offer out to someone w/ BizLink so less critical depth there now.

    12/09/20 15:15 PM . Tim Bauer. Role is 100% remote (no kickoff onsite as originally indicated)

    12/09/20 14:47 PM . Tim Bauer. Reopening. Client has refocused on candidates with depth around upgrades with Application Integrator and/or BizLink. Specifcally mapping/partner conversion issues. They just punted a submission from us that went to 2nd interview due to lack of experience in upgrade specific work (partner/mapping resolution; BizLink; App Integrator; etc.).

    11/30/20 15:51 PM . Tim Bauer. Pinging agent to confirm desire to reschedule interview with our candidate (asked for screen w/ him last week that didn't work out).

    11/19/20 13:09 PM . Tim Bauer. Client is talking w/ candidate (ours) today. So still going. We'll wait for feedback on that.

    11/11/20 21:00 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    11/11/20 21:00 PM . Tim Bauer. Client has screened a couple but no feedback yet. So we'll move this to hold (neither one ours).

    11/07/20 18:47 PM . Tim Bauer. Still waiting on this. No update from end client. Have pinged them for update.

    10/29/20 19:37 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared submission to agent for review. Unclear if a fit as doesn't have notable (any) depth w/ EDI (with or without OpenTEXT). Also didn't have the specific cloud products (but did have Azure / OpenTEXT migration work).

    10/28/20 18:50 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent clarifies that candidates declined so far have been missing OpenText and/or OpenText Cloud depth. Need both.
