Production Support and DevOps Optimization
I worked with the largest agency in the state of Idaho to provide Scrumban
expertise to two production support development teams, a Linux admin team, and
an Oracle DBA team. I used the Scrum framework to help teams define and reach
more reliable and effective paths for providing services to business end users and
internal development teams.
This included providing critical support to monthly and hot fix release cycles,
including support for user acceptance testing activities as well as development
and integration testing across 6 development teams. In addition, we provided
essential services to migrate an application from mainframe to middleware
systems for a state-wide application.
Reliable and Complete Big Data Ingestions
Data warehouse feeds must be consistently complete and highly reliable in order
to meet the business expectations for informatics, data science, and business
intelligence. I worked with an ingestion team as scrum master to help them
standardize the development life cycle to consistently meet business and
operations expectations for operational readiness. In addition, the team began
designing and deploying Data Vault models for a more consistent and business-
friendly data consumption framework.
Reliable SharePoint Infrastructure
When you have critical business operations and maintenance activities
documented for hundreds of people in a single location, it becomes critically
important that the environment be reliable, fault tolerant, extensible to
unpredictable growth, and recoverable in a disaster scenario.
I have spent two years as a Scrum Master specifying, designing, and
implementing these infrastructure improvements for a critical government agency.
In the process, I helped to deliver SharePoint solutions and custom workflows to
meet the demands of a regional enterprise.
