SharePoint App development & SQL Server Reporting Services

About the company
With around 14k employees in 33 countries, LANXESS is an established company on the global market. The primary expertise lies in producing, developing and marketing chemical intermediates, additives, specialty chemicals and plastics. The company is managing the operating business through four segments: Advanced Intermediates, Specialty Additives, Consumer Protection and Engineering Materials.

The challenge
After the decision to convert old but important custom SAP tools and Workflows into the more economical Microsoft SharePoint Infrastructure, the challenge was to prove that it works faster, cheaper and more effective. We reached this goal step by step in several immense projects over a time of two years. At that time I was working at least 5 days a week directly on site in the chemical park in Leverkusen. My tasks included leading the entire team, project management and the implementation of complex processes. In addition to the development, a large number of complex SQL Server reports had to be implemented via the Microsoft Reporting Services. International communication with various locations in India and Germany made the project all the more exciting.

Special thanks
I especially want to say thanks to Holger, Markus and Niclas.
