Syed has an amazing ability to be able to establish an understanding of complex system requirements from just a brief conversation. I am always amazed by how quickly he can grasp the intricacies of a Product Managers request. I have enjoyed working closely with Syed for 18 months, at the forefront of the APS Cloud Development. In his role as Cloud Architect I have been continually impressed by his extensive knowledge of new technologies and his ability to plan and deliver solutions based on choosing the best technology to solve the actual problem. His knowledge, willingness to share knowledge and his calm and good-humored approach is clearly demonstrated in his ability to inspire and motive colleagues. If I need a technology solution, Syed is the man I turn to.
