Project Description

Project Manager

DAS Group

From: April 2021

To: September 2021

As part of DAS UK’s move to consolidate two Bristol offices into one, a decision was made to move all of their on-premise IT infrastructure into the cloud. This resulted in two distinct projects that I was recruited to PM. The first involved the migration of their on-premise VM Estate to VMWare VPC on AWS and associated Decommissioning – working with internal DC Team & Architects and VMWare Project Team.

The second involved the migration of an on-premise iSeries Solution to 3rd Party Data Centres – incorporating a move from NetApps to DELL EMC & DRaaS.

Key Achievements

  • Creation of a green field suite of governance so DAS could track the progress of my projects.
  • Successful liaison with 3rd party suppliers and building of a cross-party Project team.
  • Worked together with a solutions architect and programme manager to deliver a successful migration.
  • Worked with the business day-to-day to ensure only relevant servers and associated services were migrated to the new platform, decommissioning as necessary.
