Shahid Rahim

Basic

Skills

Many years of experience and in-depth technical knowledge gained from national and international projects
working across multiple sectors: A highly motivated & enthusiastic Pre-Sales/Technical Consultant/Systems Engineer working in various technical roles
as team member/leader or technical lead
I have gained valuable experience in design and on problem solving initiatives in the areas of systems integration/implementation of information systems
security (Identity & Access Control Management
RBAC
Data/Network security/encryption
PKI
user provisioning
SSO solutions)
Enterprise software/solutions/applications
EAI
Messaging
E-commerce
Web-based
client/server solutions & infrastructure
primarily in the Banking & Finance
Government/Public Services
Manufacturing & Transport/Travel sectors. Working on both national and international projects has strengthened my analytical/design and business skills
the ability to work on my own initiatives and in concert with others in a truly global team. During the course of my work
I have endeavored to maintain a broad-based knowledge of the various fields of Data Communications; Information Systems
Security
Infrastructure/Networks & IT Transformation in an effort to retain the wider view rather than becoming too subject specific. I feel that this attitude has facilitated a greater degree of improvisational and lateral ability (adaptability/flexibility
grasping new technologies with speed) than the narrower perspective might otherwise allow
