As a Senior Architect with Microsoft Consulting Services, I focus on architecting and delivering large-scale complex projects on current technologies (Cortana Analytics, Windows Azure, Hybrid Cloud, Windows Azure Machine Learning and Mahout on Azure, Microsoft AppDev technologies primarily based on .NET stack, Windows 8 and Windows Phone app development, Enterprise and Government Social, IoT, Windows 8 deployments and app compatibility ,System Center, Windows Server 2008 R2/2012, FIM, SQL server and BizTalk Server), project lifecycles, and project management. I have been driving large enterprise IT and CIO initiatives for the past 7 years for large enterprise and government customers of Microsoft.
I was resident chief architect for four years on a Microsoft program for healthcare industry helping a partner build a healthcare product and deliver a healthcare solution on Microsoft platform for NHS UK
I now truly believe data is the new currency and I help enterprises and governments mine it. And, I go about telling, "let's find and understand the context of your data". Data as a currency is useless if we don't get the context and only find or attach a qualitative attribute or a quantitative number to it.
Apart from technology career, I am interested in microeconomic topics related to health and education in emerging markets. On the personal front I am an outlier and enigma to physicians with obscure and rare diseases like Nesidioblastosis - hence I like to look at Pathology, Radiology and other diagnostics data reports to find if popular correlation techniques used by doctors break sometimes.
I am married to a Dermatologist and wonder how medical industry works. I kind of figured that doctors- especially specialists and super specialists are so buried in that one small organ they look at, they fail/don't try to see the big picture and link multiple problems to identify the root cause. The challenge is medical field does not have “architect role” who can kind of look and make sense of big picture and relate it to each problem. Maybe, sometime in the future IT industry to fill gap of data-driven architect will be able to solve this problem.
