Greetings! My name is Yaheya Quazi. I am a technology Evangelist, currently employed at University of California, Santa Barbara. At UCSB, I am in charge of Software Engineering Architecture and LifeCycle. SEAL is responsible for building, integrating and providing lifecycle support for UCSB’s enterprise systems. In particular, I run the teams that are responsible for the following areas -

  • Enterprise Architecture and Systems Engineering
  • Identity and Access Management Engineering
  • Peoplesoft Development/Management for Financial Systems
  • Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence
  • Enterprise Application Development

This is my personal space. The focus of this site is to publish a variety of miscellaneous items that I hope visitors find interesting or useful. As I come across interesting stuff, I'll post my reflections here. What qualifies as "interesting" for me? Well, that's a pretty broad range of topics! First and foremost, I'm always interested in improving efficiency and expanding services through better utilization of technology. This is a journey, not a destination. As we implement new technologies, I'll share our successes (or failures) here.

Another topic might be if I run into a technical problem, and then find a nice solution for it. I might learn about an application or piece of hardware that offers helpful features. Maybe there's an upcoming tech-related event that's of interest. I also might come across a good magazine article. The only thing for sure is that no matter what I write about, it will be related to technology in one way or another.

Anyway, feel free to wander. If you so desire, do not hesitate to contact me. Needless to say, anything I post in this site is my personal opinion and not that of my employer.
