05/08 – 08/11        Microsoft, Inc                                                                       Redmond, WA

Sr. Systems Engineer/Build Engineer

Worked in the Service Transition team in SDO as a build engineer but also contributed to tooling, reporting and automation.

·         Day to Day

°         Deployed software in PPE and Production environments

°         Document Reviews

°         Code Reviews

°         Environment Prep

°         Server decommissioning

°         Platform and server maintenance

°         Training L2

°         Maintain SOP documents

·         Projects

°         DeployDoc Tool

°         Wrote the BRD for a deployment doc tool which would maximize the efficiency of work done by the various teams in the deployment process

°         Designed and implemented the back-end data structure

°         The old process was for the Dev team to write the initial deployment document, Test team to make modifications, Service Transition to do the doc review and submit changes through emails and track the deployment process through an external tool. The process also involved lengthy preparation of documents for deployment to a particular environment.

°         The solution was to build a web based tool which would accept parameters to create a new proposed document, pull data from a CMDB and merge the data into a deployment document.

°         Automation Tool

°         Created a prototype for Phase II of the DeployDoc Tool in Silverlight

°         The tool took various types of deployments into account and for each type, built a process and work flow which created the script for the entire deployment to be run automated. Once the deployment was run successfully, an option would be available to make it part of the DSL (Definitive Software Library).

°         Sufficient budget was not allocated for the project

°         Deployment Notification Tool

°         Problem statement: The system for managing the deployments did not have a usable notification option. We also needed a centralized easy to use calendar which could be accessed by various teams and can be managed by our SRMs (Service Release Managers). The process was manual and required for SBEs (Service Build Engineers) to fill out various data which many engineering teams complained were inconsistent. All dev work on new applications were halted due to evangelization of a centralized tool but the tool did not provide the necessary functionality for our teams.

°         Solution: Phase I – Created an email template with the necessary fields which all teams were in agreement with. Phase II – Created a SharePoint “Resource” calendar with the appropriate fields and implemented workflows to perform data validations, automate field population and send out an email notification with the appropriate data to all parties concerned. The SharePoint calendar was adopted throughout the Finance space within Service Transition and applauded by other teams. Phase III – Since this created significantly more work for the SBEs, I created an Excel sheet, in compliance with the policy of not creating new applications, which, based on the unique ID, pulled data from SharePoint calendar and populated the entire template with the pertinent data which would otherwise be required to be filled out manually. The tool also allowed for quick selection of status and automatic scheduling and notification to all parties who needed to be notified. On average it cut down roughly 15 minutes per deployment and gave a consistent look and feel with all relevant data to the customers.

°         CMDB Tool: Wrote a tool for gathering server configuration data from over a thousand servers we support and populate a database

°         Included Machine, Network, Hardware, Software and SQL Server Agent job data

°         Built an SSRS reports application to view data and drill down to pertinent data which included navigation to other reports and analyzing SQL Agent job failure rates and offending server/job

°         Decom Project Plan

°         Created a detailed MS Project plan which helped learn the server decom process in Service Transition

°         Synced up the Project with SharePoint

°         Sanctioned by Team Lead and Adopted by SRM
