MediaCity UK Photographic Time-lapse Video – 2007 thru 2010
During my time working in Salford Quays as an IT Project Manager, I took a good number of photos and movies of the MediaCity build (literally from the ground up). The pictures were taken from 2007 when the dockland was flat and unused, through to 2010. MediaCity UK is now home to the BBC (BBC North), ITV in the North West and the University of Salford.
The 200 or so pictures in this movie represent an abridged timeline of the build selected from a few thousand photos starting from 2007.
Music soundtrack accompanying movie timeline is by John Barry and from the film –
Microsoft Power Platform is a line of business intelligence, app development, and app connectivity software applications. Microsoft developed the Power Fx low-code programming language for expressing logic across the Power Platform. It also provides integrations with GitHub and Teams.
The Power Platform family of products includes:
1) Power BI, a software for visualizing data with different kinds of charts. It competes with tools like Tableau
2) Power Apps, graphical software for writing low-code custom business applications
3) Power Automate, formerly Microsoft Flow, a toolkit similar to IFTTT for implementing business workflow products
4) Power Automate Desktop, a Robotic process automation software for automating graphical user interfaces (acquired in May 2020)

The Anypoint Platform includes various components such as Anypoint Design Center, which allows API developers to design and build APIs; Anypoint Exchange, a library for API providers to share APIs, templates, and assets; and Anypoint Management Center, a centralized web interface to analyze, manage, and monitor APIs and integrations.
The Delivery Manager role is much like a Programme Manager role and typically links with the client’s Project /Programme Manager role to ensure that any project plans align to the MuleSoft Outcome Based Delivery (OBD) framework to achieve the agreed business outcomes.
The OBD framework provides a structured set of work streams, tasks and sub-tasks for the client to become fully enabled in an API-led project delivery as part of the business operating model. It also provides best practice guidance on the required business and IT culture modifications and governance to support the correct API ownership approach. The 3 OBD streams are; 1) Business Outcomes, 2) Technology Delivery and 3) Org Enablement.
