Lead cloud architect for IBM EcoD (Ecosystem Development) EMEA. I worked on a daily basis with IBM partners as they design and implement cloud solutions using the IBM technologies: Bluemix, PureSystems and Softlayer. How can we implement a DevOps strategy? How do we SaaSify our existing solutions? How can we develop new 'born in the cloud' solutions but still leverage existing data models and legacy applications sitting behind our enterprise firewalls? These are the challenges facing IBM partners as they strive to be competitive and win in todays markets. As the lead cloud architect my responsibility was to help provide the tailored roadmaps, strategies and implementations.
To help highlight IBM Cloud, I built Internet of Things (IoT) demos. Key elements involved configuring the backend Cloud Analytic and Big Data services to surface insights.
Also, I was very involved in the BPM (Business Process Management) suite of offerings from IBM.
