Ace Aviator of the Month


June's Ace Aviator: Sebastian Meyer




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

I'm a Senior Lead Architect and I am responsible to solve integration needs from our clients. I have over 15 years of experience in the integration space. Mainly BizTalk Server and Azure Integration Services. I also have knowledge about SAP Integration Suite, so I work closely with stakeholders from different departments with different systems to understand and translate their needs into appropriate integration solutions. I am helping design, implementing and optimize integration solutions and also mentoring teams to adopt new capabilities.


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

Every day is diverse, usually I work in more than one project, but a typical day is fully packed with meetings with clients and co-workers. There is a lot of communication to do. Other parts of my day include prototyping of new approaches and/or technologies, creating technical design documents and presentations for clients.


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

Being an active member in the community is very important for me. Technology, especially Integration-Technology, is my passion and I learned a lot from the community. I want to share my knowledge to others, so they can also learn a lot from my experience. I think this can be named as circle of continuous learning where everyone from the community plays a crucial role. No matter if you are a beginner or an expert.


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?

I want to give the following advice. Not every new technology or framework should be adopted without thinking about it and double-check it if it is really necessary for your needs. But it is important to be interested in and open-minded for new technologies. Because technology is evolving very fast.


What has helped you grow professionally?

I think the most important part to grow professionally is not only focus on technology. To be professional there is more than technology. Soft skills like communication, kindness and taking responsibility for your own work and your team members are very important as well. Don't stop learning and grow yourself.


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

If I had a magic wand to create a feature in Logic Apps, it would be full support for running Logic Apps on-prem to support on-prem only integration workloads, because this is the most requested feature by our clients.
