Mandy Shaw is an IT architect by profession. She has run her own business (see http://www.iperimeter.co.uk) since 2008, previously working for a large UK systems integrator for many years. The majority of her experience has been with IBM hardware and software (IBM i, WebSphere, etc.) rather than with Microsoft products. However, a few years ago she set up a demonstration suite for her then employer in which were featured a lot of Microsoft products, especially unified communications and voice offerings, and she developed a strong interest in them. When she acquired her first Windows Phone in 2010, she fell for it hook line and sinker. She received loads of great help on Answers, and decided to get involved in the community herself.
