Job description

Senior Consultant – DevOps Architect
Within serima I had the responsibility to design and implement a DevOps CICD best practice. This concept is now used for the  delivery of solutions in all new projects. Every solution has its own ready-to-pull docker development environment, including unit testing capabilities. The “DevOps CICD Pipeline” itself (Jenkins, Nexus, GitLab) prepares the docker images ready for integration testing and deployment. In all cases using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) at its core.

Deployment methods encompass:

  • manually or on-prem Docker environment, or
  • AWS Cloud using Packer, Terraform, and Ansible

Senior Consultant – Business Developer Cloud Monitoring
Our team was tasked with offering future business opportunities to the CEO by assessing marketing reports and conducting vendor communication.

The following offers an overview of focus area’s and/or technologies evaluated (PoC):

  • Market analysis
  • Feasibility study (Professional Services or SaaS)
  • OpenShift, ICP, AWS
  • ELK Stack / Elastic Search, Splunk, Prometheus, Grafana
  • Terraform, Ansible, LXD, Kubernetes, Docker/Docker compose

Senior Consultant – Service Management and Correlation (Root Cause Analysis)
As Senior Consultant I led complex projects in the larger Service Provider and Telco customers. Main focus area’s encompassed RCA correlation and Service Management architectures for both Mobile (LTE, UMTS, GPRS), IP, and Transport (SDH, WDM). The designs were mainly based on the IBM Tivoli Netcool framework (OMNIbus, Impact, TBSM, ITNM), with (open source) additions like edgeSuite, Pentaho PDI Kettle, and NodeJS solutions.

Activities include:

  • Support European customers (mainly Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Poland) to setup and/or enhance their Service Assurance environment to the constant changing managed services demand.
  • Setup and/or enhance the supporting ITIL processes as Change Management, Release and Deployment Management, Incident and Problem Management, and independent Test Management.
  • Leading responsibilities in project communication and planning, design, and implementation of the agreed upon solution using agile project management (Scrum).
  • Demo sessions and proof of concept (POC) in a controlled technical lab or within the customer’s environment.

Trainer
Facilitate formal IBM training (IBM Premium Partner) or tailored workshops, both on customer premises and formal training sites.

Bemerkungen

Summary
With over 20 years of experience in the Service Provider, Telco, and Finance market I had the pleasure to work with the largest companies in Europe. As IT Solution Architect I enjoyed designing Service Operating Center solutions integrating IBM Netcool with OSS, BSS and other (open source) monitoring systems. Feeling comfortable in areas ranging from hands-on Engineering to IT Strategy, I'm convinced that technology solutions, collaboration and communication, and business goals should always go hand in hand. While many customers moved to the cloud, I've moved with them applying the same proven design principles. Where possible I make use of Infra as Code (IaC) and CI/CD pipelines to deliver solutions to the cloud. Not only because it brings high value to the business (reduced costs and risks, optimized speed), but also just because it harmonizes the development efforts. Being seen as a team player, I like to listen to people and try to understand their needs. Consolidate all thoughts, use a methodical and structured approach based on best practices to make it work for all parties (win-win). This can be as simple as a talk over coffee or a formal presentation with all stakeholders to present possible solutions. In a constantly changing IT landscape, I understand that today’s knowledge can be old tomorrow. I like to follow new trends and educate myself with the latest best practices in the market. This enables me to continuously improve my role and responsibilities.
