The times they are ae-changing

I have been quite on this blog for a couple of weeks now, and there are a couple of reasons for this. First of all, it’s the holiday season and I need some rest too 🙂

Secondly, I have changed jobs since the 1st of August 2017. This means a lot of ongoing projects had to be wrapped up before I could make the switch. So on to the announcement:

I started as a senior consultant at AE, a consulting company located in Heverlee, Belgium. AE orginally stood for Application Engineers, but they have evolved from their roots and their current tagline is more accurate: Architects for Business & ICT (in Belgium we use Information & Communication Technology instead of just IT). AE is a company focused on guiding a company through a transformation, be it business or technical. Their focus is a lot on architecture, but also on the operational side. Because of this, they tend to have long durable relationships with their clients and this was something a was looking for: projects where I can sink my teeth in for a longer period of time. Furthermore, they have been awarded as “great place to work” for several years now.

My focus will be on Information Management (IM) and Analytics, so I’m pretty sure I can apply my Microsoft Data Platform knowledge, but it’s also possible I get to experience tasks outside of my comfort zone, which might be a nice change.

Anyway, blog posts will continue and thanks for reading!
