Professional Background
SharePoint Architect
Logistics Company
July 2013 – Present
Driving forward the effective use of SharePoint in the organization. Involved in Architecture, Analysis, Solution Design, Development and Training.

I manage a small team (partially offshore) which provides solutions for rapidly changing business requirements. Customer facing, I maintain contact with many areas of the business to aid their daily tasks and facilitate future developments.

Since joining the group I have overhauled many aspects of how SharePoint is managed to make it effective for the long term. This includes;

       Formulating new support procedures for 24/7 coverage
       A solid Information Architecture
       Site restructuring to avoid legacy issues
       A revamped Search experience which won plaudits from several departments for making their working day much easier
       Solutions to tag content with information from other business systems automatically

I recently led a major project to upgrade our SharePoint 2010 farm to SharePoint 2016. This involved project initiation, planning, designing the farm topology, migrating the content and solutions with tools such as Sharegate, Metalogix and Powershell, and managing vendors who were contracted to work within the project. Let's just say it was a busy year. :) However this provided major cost savings and has empowered the organization to begin leveraging the significant new capabilities and modern development frameworks such as SPFx.

I also have a good head for turning data into information through data analysis, employing tools such as Tableau, SSRS, Power BI.

I'm the designated IT owner of many key applications and platforms. As such I manage relations with several vendors, ensure system integrity and availability, manage maintenance and provide training, help, and support for the business.

Though officially the Solution Architect I still roll up my sleeves to solve problems using tools including ASP.NET, React.js, SPFx, Tableau, K2 Blackpearl, and Powershell.
