What is your role and title? What are your responsibilities associated with your position?

My job title is integration architect at Bidone. I was responsible for moving their EDI solutions from BizTalk Server to Azure. That is now done. I am now elaborating the long-term strategy for Bidone EDI cloud architecture.


Can you provide some insights into your day-to-day activities and what a typical day in your role looks like?

My day at Bidone changes, it can include assessing requests for new EDI interfaces, reviewing existing architecture against latest Azure functionality, Azure cost assessment, reviewing our Azure security, implementing interfaces and third level Azure support.


What motivates and inspires you to be an active member of the Aviators/Microsoft community?

I have always written about what I do for 3 reasons. Firstly it clears my mind of stressful situations, it is a record of where I have been and what I write might help some else.


Looking back, what advice do you wish you would have been told earlier on that you would give to individuals looking to become involved in STEM/technology?

My advice to a younger self would be join or start a startup. Take some risks because you will learn from any failures.


What has helped you grow professionally?

I think presenting is a good way to learn because I always think that you don’t understand anything until you have to teach some else about it.


Imagine you had a magic wand that could create a feature in Logic Apps. What would this feature be and why?

I would have a universal mapping tool that creates XSLT and liquid templates. (I know you are halfway there but would like it for consumption too).
