My Services

“I love your content, but what do you actually offer?"
Potential Customer

That is a question I often hear, which proves two things:

  1. Business case validation
  2. Transformation roadmap definition
  3. Implementation strategy guidance

Training:

I will accelerate your learning curve by:

  1. Theoretical foundations
  2. IoT using AWS classes
  3. Practical workshops

Projects:

My involvement reduces the time-to-value of your projects and helps to avoid costly mistakes by:

  1. Requirements definition
  2. Solution design
  3. Development oversight

Advisory ☎️

I can help you avoid mistakes that would make you fail when you succeed.

I cannot guarantee that I will be able to answer all of your questions, but I will assist you in achieving your business goals.

As an IoT Consultant at AWS, I assisted global organizations in successfully implementing and utilizing complex Internet of Things (IoT) deployments to achieve their business goals and improve operations.

I saw many interesting IoT products/services that failed because they:

  • Were addressing a non-existing need.
  • Were not able to scale to meet the growing demand.
  • Got compromised due to security vulnerability.

My extensive experience, knowledge of the field of IoT, and deep understanding of the AWS platform enabled me to provide valuable guidance and support to clients throughout their IoT journey, from strategy and planning to deployment and ongoing operations.

Currently, I am engaged in consulting with C-level Executives, Company Owners, and Start-up Founders assisting them in designing and implementing innovative solutions that leverage the power of IoT.

I work closely with those stakeholders to understand their unique business challenges and goals and help them to design and execute successful IoT offerings that drive growth, increase efficiency, and deliver real-world results.

Frequently asked questions

Question: Will you sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) before we speak?
Answer: For smaller engagements such as Advisory Calls, I do not sign non-disclosure agreements. However, for longer-term collaborations, we can sign the NDA.

Question: What stops you from revealing our secrets to competitors?
Answer: As a professional advisor, I understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality and respect for your sensitive information. Abusing your trust would not only damage my reputation but also cause harm to your business.

Question: What if I do not want to use AWS Cloud, does it still make sense to meet?
Answer: Cloud backend is only one of multiple parts of IoT deployment. I do believe that I can still provide you my valuable experience in case you decide not to use the AWS Cloud. I have a money-back guarantee, ensuring my clients are not taking any financial risk with my services.

Money-back guarantee

I offer a money-back guarantee for my advisory services. You can be confident in your investment and have the peace of mind that if you are not satisfied with my services, you will receive a full refund. That is a testament to my confidence in the quality of my work and my dedication to ensuring complete customer satisfaction.

“We found it very helpful, with a huge amount squeezed into the time. The learning curve on the course was quite steep, as we were effectively learning the whole AWS platform, IOT Core, Python and more all at once. This meant I was pretty exhausted by the end of it, but in a good way!"

Frequently asked questions

Question: Is a background in development required to participate in or understand the content of your training sessions?
Answer: I design my training to be accessible to a wide range of individuals, including business and product owners, project managers, and architects. However, it is important to note that these are primarily technical training sessions. A basic understanding of Information Technology and programming languages may enhance the overall learning experience.

Question: Which programming languages will you use during those training sessions?
Answer: I use Python language.

Question: Is it possible to use JavaScript instead of Python?
Answer: If that is a strong requirement from your side, I can prepare a custom training for you using JavaScript or TypeScript. However, please note that most of my training sessions are conducted using Python. I recommend Python as it is a versatile language widely used in IoT developments. If you would like to discuss the possibility of custom training using JavaScript, please feel free to contact me to discuss the details.

Project engagement 🚦

As an experienced consultant, I understand the importance of overseeing the development of solutions from the very beginning.

That’s why I offer my expertise to help clients achieve their desired business outcomes by actively participating in the solution design phase. By doing so, I ensure that the technical solution design aligns with the business objectives and requirements. My active participation in the solution design phase enables me to identify potential technical challenges and risks that may impact the overall success of the project.

I provide guidance and recommendations to ensure the technical design meets the required standards and best practices. This approach guarantees that the solution is built to meet the client’s business needs while also ensuring security, scalability, performance, and maintainability.

Through regular communication with the development team and stakeholders, I will ensure that the solution being developed is aligned with the business outcomes and is technically sound.

My participation gives you confidence that your IoT solution will be designed and developed according to the best practices and meets your specific needs.
