performance of the infrastructure. Implemented the solution with the client team in 6 months duration with client
satisfaction.

handled; I analyzed the overall infrastructure setup and implemented cost reduction and got 100K for the client in just one
year of the project go-live.
Successfully setup processes for service desk- It was a new contract to the company, which involved the setup of a
