Technology Strategy Consultant @ I am currently the deployment and data lead for the largest global deployment of a Mobile Device Management (AirWatch) solution, comprising of 100K users. I use SQL and Excel to manage all project data to generate metrics, provide executive summaries, generate and verify deployment & cutoff rosters, and analyze all data sources to gain additional insights into mobile device security. I have analyzed mobile device usage (millions of data records) to discover trends amongst diverse personal subsets which influence executive level decisions regarding mobile device security initiatives.
Additional responsibilities include designing and leading various sub-initiatives in support of the larger deployment, such as misconfigured user remediation waves and other technical workarounds due to known issues with the vendor's system.
