About me

I am Taiob Ali
Microsoft Data Platform MVP

During my last 13 years, I worked with SQL Server and MongoDB platforms, both on-premise, and cloud. My experience includes three major business sectors: financial industry, e-commerce and healthcare

I have hands-on experience in managing large database projects, including massive data migration, intricate process design, testing and deployment, performance tuning, long term capacity planning.

I am currently working at an investment management firm as lead DBA and focusing on automation, improving and streamlining operational workflow, plan, and prepare for cloud migration. I regularly speak at local and virtual PASS chapters, SQL Saturdays, and Azure conferences. I am a board member of New England SQL Server User Group, organizer of Boston SQL Saturday.
