  • Identified areas for modification and improvement of business applications and determined which custom applications built by consultant firms were inadequate in meeting business requirements.  Provided solutions to secure their data before further enhancements and performed security assessment on consultant provided applications.  Worked with CTO to steer business towards cloud products and more dependable consultant firms to streamline sales and data management.
