Projects Fahad has worked on
Integrating The Data For Over 5 Million Companies Globally
Fahad led a team on the biggest project any of them had been involved in, and it remains one of his proudest achievements. He was involved in ingesting the data of over 5.4 million companies worldwide, and it took the implementation of a lot of infrastructure/best practice processes. They also created a new framework because they were also ingesting a number of other applications. Sometimes, the biggest tasks teach you the most.
Completely Re-Developing www.zawya.com
While at Thomson Reuters, the company acquired Zawya, which led to a complete re-development and re-defining process. Rather than shutting down the old application, Fahad worked closely with the infrastructure team to integrate the Zawya website, as well as others, to suit Thomson Reuters’ needs.
Bringing Education Services Australia’s Scootle Application Up To Speed
Education Services Australia’s Scootle application had been written a decade ago when Fahad was brought on board to update it. He was involved in migrating user passwords, upgrading the program’s search engine and vastly improving the programs involved in the application. Nothing is too old for Fahad to upgrade – even when years and years have passed.
