Summary

* I have 12 years of IT experience during which I have successfully worked on all phases of software development life cycle delivering solutions using wide array of methodologies and adopting state of the art technical standards. I have always been at the cusp of evolving technologies and project management techniques to possess a leading edge to offer the best of both faculties.

* Lead the implementation of ‘first’ MOSS 2007 enterprise content management and workflow solution at a fortune 50 company on time and within budget. Process involved extensive alternative/value analysis, engaging teams within and outside of company to understand feasibility of the approach and decipher known ‘unknowns’. It also involved managing procurement and logistics of new hardware resources, licenses and addressing limitations with development activities using standard global client. This resulted in company’s ability to meet ECHA regulations for chemical registration, volume tracking and downstream customer communications.* Chartered and supervised a road map plan for upgrading of plant floor security systems from W2K to W2K3. The original two step process was streamlined to shorten implementation life cycle significantly which resulted in cost savings of up to $700,000. This effort also included determining VMware viability for new product release in tandem with exploring storage alternatives to align with company's most effective technology objectives and reduce operational costs.

* Instrumental in delivery of a complex CITRIX based application for clinical trials team which was ongoing for 3 years prior to my involvement. It was successfully accomplished by leveraging team’s technical expertise, offering tactical solutions to build new interfaces and alleviating platform related issues. The application architecture was re-engineered using SOA design patterns which resulted in cost savings on licenses and yearly recharges by 50%.
