    About Your work: • You will get exceptional service : I will provide world class services, with exceptional quality deliverables. • Your work is my passion : I enjoy my work and will give your project full attention, I only work with limited clients at a time. • My Guarantee : I will not charge you, until you are 100% satisfied with the quality of deliverables. I'd love to have long term relationship ! About Me : Experienced world class product manager and business analyst. (Ex-Deloitte) Excellent atttention to details. Experienced in taking the idea from concept to global launch. Deep technical and interpersonal skills. Collaborative and easy to work with. I dedicate my full energy and commitment to my clients and make sure that there is a clear plan in place for our combined success. At the start of the engagement, I will work with you to define or refine your vision. We will then agree on a number of objectives and key results. Once we agree on objectives, I will agree on a cadence of our work and governance mechanisms, e.g. how often we meet and the reporting format and frequency. Based on our objectives, agreed cadence, and timelines, I will then work to develop a project plan. Once we have those artifacts in place, we can start looking into lower-level details e.g. product roadmap, backlog, risks, and mitigations. I will also share information from my huge knowledge base, which I've built over the years, including free articles, imagery, and topic-specific materials. I will bring over 18 years of experience with me, where I have helped both startups and Global organizations on their product and digital transformation journey. I started my freelance career back in 1999, where I would go to small charity organizations in Karachi and offer them my services to develop their websites, using HTML. After my graduation in IT in 2003, I did my M.Sc from the world-renowned University of Leeds. After working as a software engineer and supporting clients like Vodafone and O2 for a number of years, I moved into the consulting world with Deloitte in 2012. Within Deloitte, I learned how to work effectively with customers and how to be more result-driven. I provided strategic services to prestigious clients like Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals. And was also fortunate to lead the product (functional and non-functional) stream for the UK Driver License production system replacement program. Since 2016, I am working as a freelancer and have delivered exceptional products and transformations to my clients, notable clients include Allstate Insurance and Northern Ireland Electricity along with a couple of small startups. For my recent client, I conceptualized, developed, and successfully launched an API-based global B2B2C loyalty platform. This cutting-edge service, which delivered hyper-personalized offers and cashbacks via mobile-banking apps, made a substantial impact on over 10 million users worldwide. Notable clients included major financial institutions such as First Abu Dhabi Bank in the UAE and Monzo bank in the UK. I believe in continuous learning for myself, so I can deliver the best results to my clients. I have attended a number of training programs and gained industry accreditations, including Business Analysis Practitioner (CBAP®), Certified Scrum Product Owner, Certified Scrum Master, BCS Intl. diploma in business analysis, SAFe® Agilist, TOGAF® Certified Enterprise Architect, PRINCE2® Practitioner, ISTQB-ISEB certified tester, Certified JAVA programmer, Oracle Certified PL/SQL. Currently, I am doing a machine learning specialization from Coursera.

    If you have an IT project and would like an experienced professional to help you bring everything together, I should be top of your list for consideration. With over thirty years' experience working with clients large and small, you can be certain that I am able to help you take a project from conception to realisation and beyond. If you are looking for general advice, or a professional to specify, design and implement a system, I have extensive experience translating business requirements into efficient and reliable solutions. When choosing a professional to work with, you need someone who is passionate about their area of expertise and who has an extensive and up-to-date understanding of all areas that affect your project. I read extensively about software development, server hosting, and IT security and follow many of the latest trends in IT, carefully assessing their suitability for my clients. More importantly, I have been around long enough to know what is going to work for you and what is not. You will find that during our discussions, I understand quickly, think logically, make appropriate suggestions, and am able to support your decision making with relevant advice and excellent insight. If you are looking for someone who has managed a team of software developers and who maintains their programming skills at a high level, I am an excellent choice. Examples of systems that I have worked on include payment processing software, a complete fully integrated business management system (that I tailor to client requirements), process controllers, an electronic point of sale application, health-care systems and various software integrations. I primarily target desktop software development but have also built a number of web-based systems in recent years, primarily for researchers, data analysts and a subscription management application. Should you need someone who is highly proficient with a number of commercial and open source database systems, I can help. I presently focus my attention on Postgresql and in the past have worked extensively with Oracle, Interbase/Firebird and MySQL. I am a keen advocate of open source software and use it extensively. If you need a full-stack developer, you’ll find that I am a solid choice. My preference is working on the “back-end” software that supports information storage, retrieval and processing and with suitable designs I am able to construct a GUI or web-based interface. I am able to design clear user interfaces, though my preference is to make use of a designer’s work, or a template, where possible. I use Object Pascal (Delphi or Lazarus) on a daily basis and regularly work with JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS. Server-side, I work with PHP and Node.js. I am familiar with a number of different version control systems. I have also worked with C, C++, and a number of different Assembly languages in the past. I create clean, structured, reliable and easily verifiable code that stands the test of time. If your specific business requirement would be well-served by an open source solution, you'll find my knowledge invaluable. I am able to assist with setting up a suitable implementation, with extensive experience actively managing servers for different clients, primarily running RHEL (and its derivatives) 6 through to 9, and Ubuntu server 16.04 through to 22.04. I also have extensive experience with Kubernetes and generally use either Alpine Linux or Debian for base images that I work on. Finally, I think that it’s important to say that sometimes a specialist is required for certain tasks in more complicated projects and on the rare occasion that I cannot help directly, I will support you making the right choice of professional to work with, acting as your interface to specialised experts if the need arises. All of my present learning is informal and I possess a first class honours degree in Computer Science, awarded just over thirty years ago.
