IT service provider, Kiandra IT, has appointed Shyam Narayan as its solutions architect.
Narayan is known in the industry as a Microsoft FAST Search and SharePoint evangelist who regularly delivers presentations on the Microsoft speaker circuit.
He has previously held solution architecture roles with Impower and, most recently, Pitcher Partners.
Narayan has a widespread experience with the SharePoint platform specialising in architecture, content management, custom development, search and business intelligence.
His interest in SharePoint helped earn him the title of Microsoft Virtual Technology Solutions Professional (V-TSP). This allows him to act as an extension of the Microsoft sales team for pre-sales technical support.
Kiandra IT director of software development, Martin Cooperwaite, said Narayan’s history of leading SharePoint projects would allow Kiandra to spread its SharePoint practice even further.
“Customers want increased mobility, collaboration, and functionality and SharePoint answers an enterprise need for a platform that integrates the major information work tools – search, content management, business intelligence, workflow, and messaging – into a collaborative work framework,” he said.
