MShift was founded by Mike van Alst, an independent solution architect, with over 25 years experience in the IT field. MShift can be characterised as:
  • Small, but with the right contacts in the field
  • Methodical, yet pragmatic
  • Driven and focused

MShift is a network organisation. Through my contacts in the field I am able to find the right people for the right job. MShift is not a broker, we will bring you directly in touch with the right people.

Strategic and Tactical Architecture Planning (STAP) has been developed during the execution of a number of major projects. Some organizations that already have made use of STAP include:

In 2006 our project at the Nederlandse Algemene Keuringsdienst (Dutch Department of Agricultural Inspection) won the Dutch Championship ICT Architecture 2006, providing us with a good incentive to develop and perfect the STAP approach further.

In January 2008, Mike van Alst, was appointed Oracle ACE Director FMW for his contribution in the field of SOA architectures and related technologies.
