How to Become a Highly Paid Corporate Programmer” McPress March 2004
“The Power of Traceability” 2009 Registered U.S. copyright

Abstract

An increasingly critical problem confronting corporate computing and programmer capability is the inability of computer programs to record and analyze the entire execution of the program and data in real time. This lack of traceability prevents true autonomic (self-healing) computing and prevents real-time and permanent analysis of exactly what executing program statements and data are actually processed. Therefore, as computers become millions of times more powerful and program environments become ever more complex and critical, the programmer is still using tools developed at the dawn of computing—tools like step debugging, reconstruction of events, and guessing--to attempt to understand what happened, rather than simply observing exactly what happened.

In this paper I present a technique–-Electronic Program Auditing—and a software tool–The Real-Time Program Audit—designed to capture and record all of the executing source program statements in virtually any programming language, along with all of the data being processed and the moment-in-time of the statement execution without programmer intervention. This technique and unique tool provide a video-camera-like recording of the exact environment of the entire program execution (or selected conditions of the execution) as the program executes—thus delivering the potential of true autonomic computing and capturing previously unrecorded critical information. This paper presents my technique and tool, some actual and possible applications, and evidence of the value of my approach.

On-Demand Forensic Accounting and Analytics” 2012 Registered U.S. Copyright



Abstract

Forensic accounting or financial forensics, currently lacks the ability to proactively record, access, examine and analyze in real-time all of the financial activity used in financial transactions and financial reporting.

This “black box’ of opaque and inaccessible computing financial detail information has allowed and enabled numerous recent huge “Ponzi schemes’ including the Bernard Madoff and Charles Stanford cases which cost investors billions of dollars while humiliating the responsible government regulators] and causing the investing public to lose confidence in stock market investing.

This paper describes a patented forensic accounting and analytic capability that captures and records all executing program source statements, data and a time stamp inside corporate computer programs as they produce financial reports and makes ultimate drill-down of the source of financial information on-demand and instantly remotely available to authorized government regulators, auditors and investors.
On-Demand Forensic Accounting Universal Program Auditing Language” 2012 Registered U.S. Copyright

Abstract

Forensic accounting, or financial forensics, currently lacks the ability to proactively record, access, examine, and analyze in real time all of the financial activity used in financial transactions and financial reporting.
The “black box’ of opaque and inaccessible computing financial detail information has allowed and enabled numerous recent huge “Ponzi schemes,” including the Bernard Madoff and Allen Stanford cases, which cost investors billions of dollars while humiliating the responsible government regulators and causing the investing public to lose confidence in stock-market investing.

This paper describes a revolutionary and transformational patented forensic accounting and analytic capability that captures and records critical never before recorded information, including all executing program source statements and data, and puts a time stamp inside corporate computer programs as they produce financial reports. . This makes ultimate drill-down to the source of financial information available—on-demand, instantly, and remotely— to authorized government regulators, auditors and investors.

Additionally, the Universal Program Auditing Language described in this paper provides the actual program source statements and data creating the information, including ultimate drill-down to the computation of the data in real-time, which is instantly available via mobile device to the Forensic Accountant, CPA, government regulator, Judge, or other authorized requestor.

A Rosetta Stone like transformational capability translates the arcane goobly-gook language of multiple programming languages used to produce financial reports, including Customer Stock Summary Statements, Balance Sheet and Income Statement documents, into the language (such as English, French, or German) desired by the requesting Forensic Accountant or other requestor, virtually instantly in a format desired by the requestor, and protected from fraud.
