All projects start with the customer architecture conversation. You cannot underestimate the importance of this step. As a qualified solution architect, you need to make the most of this initial discovery talk for the sake of project success.
To do a professional job, you need to discover all parts of the existing customer’s environment. What is even more important, you need to connect all these pieces to the current tactical focus because proposed architecture changes may impact each connected part. So, how can you build trust with your customer to get all the information you need?
Every customer is different, and every industry is different — but they share many common concerns and goals. The DB Best team has an 18-year history and track record of delivering ground-breaking projects for our valued customers. In doing so, we established a proven process, which ensures the supreme quality of delivery and allows for exceeding customer’s expectations.
At this webinar, we will share this approach with you. Watch the webinar recording to learn how you can zoom in on the existing customer’s technology and problem at hand through the architecture conversation.
Peter grew up in Denmark, son of a farmer turned newspaper editor, and a banking adviser. Before emigrating to America, he worked on software user interfaces and databases for applications in CAD, Workflow modeling and Stockbroker terminals.
Later in the US, he worked on document management, telecom, monitoring and mediation software at Marconi and, and a few years at Microsoft making solutions for TechNet, Visual Studio and a fun stint at Microsoft Research.
At DB Best, Peter heads up the Platform Migration practice which helps customers migrate from one software platform to another, including the Azure, AWS and GCP clouds. This work is full of customer conversations, to uncover the details and pitfalls of legacy IT systems, in order to plan a path forward. With over 200 project engagements every year, DB Best sees all sorts of different systems, many for the first time. The job is often more about ramping up on something new, than walking down a well-worn path.
Peter lives with his wife on a little horse farm outside Seattle.
How can you best fit the new solution to the customer’s world view and the current environment?

Why do you need to expand the view and zoom out to the larger global landscape?
