Cloud computing, adaptive security architecture, machine learning, mobility, and social media technologies are fast-moving technologies that, while still often thought to be ‘futures,’ are already here. Enterprises must leverage these now, and must also continue operations and services while introducing new systems and processes.
Analyze complex environments (such as data centers) focusing attention on the unique considerations that will achieve well planned and executed migrations of technical (e.g. compute, storage, network, monitoring) and process elements across all environment platforms on premise, co-located, cloud, and hybrid cloud.
Collaborate with both application owners and engineering / operations staff to develop: business cases, highly available and fault-tolerant to-be architectures, technology refresh approaches (such as migration to cloud-hosted environments), designs, integration with or re-engineering of management and support processes and tools, etc.
Lead and support project planning and execution, maintaining service-level objectives, mentorship or oversight of identified project teams, and at-the-ready assistance for unforeseen issues.
