Project Management for a Data Center Migration
Managed a nationwide datacenter migration in 2011. We worked in this large complex matrix environment to identify 3000+ servers and migrated 600 of them from over 35 geographic sites spread across the USA.
This Healthcare organization has a complex cross functional matrix environment with two major divisions controlling a dynamically growing vast complex enterprise information system. We working without a common system of record, the team built its own database and hosted it on a on a SharePoint site. NetIQ was used to ID system states and virtualization was accomplished using tools from VMWare and PlateSpin.
Worked closely with upper management and many departments to coordinate this successful effort that shrank server sprawl, reduce operating costs and provide an environment that substantially reduced maintenance overhead. We reported to upper management in daily and weekly meetings using SharePoint, Excel pivot tables and graphs.
