It’s now two and half years since I joined #GN in March 2020, only 8 days before Denmark went into lockdown.
It has been a magnificent and extremely busy ride, ranging from the difficult onboarding, which above all my Chinese colleagues did a lot to ease, across weakening sales in the #resound hearing aid business and equally crazy sales in the #jabra audio market during Covid, a highly accelerated #Azure cloud migration, and the recent #SteelSeries acquisition.
1.5 years ago I knew absolutely nothing about Infrastructure as Code, #Terraform, and CI/CD pipelines – and today I cannot imagine building infrastructure without considering how idempotent methods might be applied, even though I still have a LOT to learn.
Working with #Aviatrix, building our cloud infrastructure has been amazing, I have learned so much from that, and I would urge anyone doing cloud networking and connectivity to take a serious look at what they do!
Working with #Conscia, building a global #Cisco #SD-WAN has been equally gratifying (although I had to renounce the IaC part), and we basically covered our global infrastructure in 6 months, with our Chinese colleagues also taking a huge toll on the migrations together with the Conscia team.
Last, but not least, it’s been a pleasure working with the team at #Telstra to define the best WAN solution for #GN for the coming years.
All this whilst my colleagues in Denmark struggled with a global deployment of #Zscaler, and we struggled with how to best integrate with the SD-WAN solution.
A special thank you to all the wonderful people across the globe I have met, who made this possible, including the many talented people from #Globeteam, #Innofactor, and #Atea.
Now it’s time to move on, and on September 1st. I’ll be joining the team at #Demant as Network Solution Specialist.
