Consultant profile – Anders Alhbin
I have been working with Internet and the Web since 1999 – as a programmer, web publisher, web manager, project manager and lately also as technical project manager and migration expert.
I have worked mainly as a consultant with the Swedish telecom company Ericsson since 2004, but has also been involved in a lot of other projects with varying tasks for different companies.
Other industries I have worked in during my career are Transport, Sales, Computer installation and support and Aviation.
In addition to my interest of Internet and web stuff, I play golf as often as I can in the summer, and in the winter, I go skiing.
I live in Järvsö in Hälsingland but also have an apartment in Sollentuna and normally work in the Stockholm area but also when the job so permits periods from home.
Helping clients to plan and structure their web sites. Advising how to best use the web to achieve goals and purposes.
Experience in planning and leading smaller and medium-sized web projects.
Technical project management
It is not always easy for a communications department and a technical supplier to understand each other. With my background where I have worked as well as programmer, web communicator and user of many different systems, I can create effective specifications and work with developers and programmers so that the system they are working with will be as user-friendly as possible for the end users.
Anyone who has ever been involved in a project that involves moving a website (internal or external) from one system to another, know the challenges of such a project. It’s about so much more than just the transfer of data, there is a lot of steps that must be planned and implemented in a proper manner and in the right order to make the migration as smooth and effective as possible. I have worked in several such projects and can help both to plan and to guide through the entire project.
Experience in planning and designing databases for smaller and medium-sized web projects.
I have worked many years as a web publisher for Ericsson’s intranet and externa website using the publishing tools TeamSite, EriColl (Sharepoint), Drupal and InfoService. Also, working as web publisher for other companies and their web sites using different publishing tools.
Worked a couple of years as Web Manager for a department within Ericsson with responsibility for its web pages and responsible for training the departments’ web publishers.
Since I have worked with a lot of different systems, I today consider myself being a bit of an expert of publishing tools. I have worked with tools such as Sharepoint, TeamSite, Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, InfoService (Internal system in Ericsson that I also been working with further development of), etc.
I have also created a tool myself together with a colleague, webCreator, that today is on the market. Lately I have also worked a lot with WordPress and Sharepointand are getting quite good using these.
Swedish (native language)
English (fluid in writing and speaking)
Publishing tools and other systems
WordPress, Sharepoint, Drupal, Dreamweaver, TeamSite, webCreator, MySQL, MS Access, MS SQL, Joomla, Adobe photoshop, Google tools, MS Office, etc.
I use to say that a tool is a tool and that I learn what I need to know.
However, I have not worked with direct programming for a while, so if such a project should turn up, I most likely need to freshen up my skills.
