Close collaboration with the major CSPs (Microsoft, AWS and GCP) as well as their numerous partners to simulate how they could use the CAST platform in their own environments to solve complex tasks during application modernization. My daily activities included meeting with clients to gain an understanding of their technology landscape, ongoing projects, and pain points. From there, I would move forward in the sales cycle by creating prototypes, pilots, or proof of concepts, based on the client's specific qual-ifications. These implementations would involve analyzing one or more applications across various technological stacks, such as J2EE, C#/NET, VB/NET or even Mainframe, to showcase the platform's value and help address any existing issues with the application, in order to ease the modernization.
