The lead of the Technical Infrastructure team, formerly known as the Integration and Architecture team, which is a team of 8+ Software, DevOps and RE engineers.

One of my latest projects was the development of a SaaS solution that allows users with no technical knowledge, to easily provision Infor applications on the cloud.  Business consultants, testers, and others are now able to deploy complex infrastructures with a click of a button.

The solution is cloud-agnostic and allows clients to provision Infor solutions on both AWS and Google Cloud.

Oussama is a skilled professional which I enjoyed working with. Even though we worked remotely, Oussama high responsiveness and high English compensated on that gap. His professional work included not only good control in all IT aspects, but also went the extra mile and included highly detailed and organized documentation. I would highly recommend Oussama to any organization, big as small.

I have worked with Oussama initially as a supervisor during his internship at Predictix and later on as a colleague. He is the hard worker, the fast learner and the team contributor, all in the same person. I would certainly vouch for his skills in Python, Java and LogiQL.
