Delivery Manager for MuleSoft

Since October 2018, augmented into MuleSoft (a Salesforce company) as a Delivery Manager managing a number of accounts across the UK, for the delivery of the Anypoint Platform.

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.

On Monday, will have been in Professional IT for 28 years…

Deluxe Data International Operations (formally The Software Partnership)

Deluxe Data International Operations, Wingate House, Northway, RUNCORNthesoftwarepartnershipwingatehousenorthwaysmall

I started work at 12pm, September 3rd 1990. The Runcorn office started life as The Software Partnership (first at Wingate Drive in Timperley and then Norton House in Crowngate and subsequently Wingate House in 1992 on Northway) in the mid-eighties (co-founded by Nigel Walsh) but was purchased in 1994 by the American company Deluxe Electronic Payment Systems. This in turn is part of Deluxe Corporation which is one of the largest cheque printers and debit transaction processors in the US, and a major supplier of secure card management systems. The company changed to EFD eFunds in 2000 and is now Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) (at 2007) based in Daresbury, Warrington. The Software Partnership started out developing on-line banking systems for Tandem and UNIX systems.

 

August 14th 1995 – 12pm, Arriving at Insider Technologies Limited (ITL)

Exactly 23 years ago, I left Deluxe Data International Operations in August 1995 and then as a Senior Programmer joined a software house in Salford Quays, Manchester called Insider Technologies Limited (ITL). The company was founded in 1989 by Steve Tanham and Jim Chapman. Insider specialised in HPE NonStop software for both monitoring (Reflex) and batch scheduling (MultiBatch) on this this mainframe platform. Insider also provided software (RTLX, Sentra) to enable the monitoring, querying and reporting on the ACI BASE24 Classic ATM / POS application using the transaction log files.

1995 – 2004:

As a Senior Programmer, I co-developed a number of platform health, diagnostic plug-in modules for Reflex (also known as Reflex 80:20). These included ‘Console’ for HPE NonStop EMS event viewing and filtering, ‘Status Monitor’ for monitoring HPE NonStop platform components (CPU, Disk, Process, File, MQ, XPNET, TCP/IP to name but a few) and ‘Service Monitor’ for building multi-line, rule based analysis of grouped HPE NonStop components to ascertain overall application / service health.
