PREFACE
My internship held at PRIVACY APPLIED, Lebanon consisted on migrating essential data from PRIVACY APPLIED Web Application to Salesforce.com cloud-based CRM1, that is to minimize the amount of ambiguities and duplication of data between these two systems.

I explored PRIVACY APPLIED Web application infrastructure including its database and core architecture, therefore delimited the type of development to proceed with creating a new workflow and UML 2 diagrams to abide to.

I have followed the execution life-cycle and therefore developed the required java batches and stored procedures to get the data from the application. Furthermore, I conducted a background research in order to get a closer look to the market to know what are the emerging solution used for synchronization between the existing systems.

I have gained extreme development experience while learning Apex, the #1 on-demand programming language in the world[1], used in Salesforce.com CRM. I also have developed my analytical experience while using SOQL, an object-oriented querying language.

I succeeded on developing the requirements and satisfied the objectives, putting together all the researches and results that I have carried out during the internship period in a team-work professional environment where we enjoyed working on new high-tech products and services in the cloud computing concept, the next generation of the internet world.
