The Team

Here at AspiraCloud we have seen all sorts of technology over the years. We are a cloud first company but our background allows us to help you find the best fit for your requirements.

Seb Matthews – Chairman

Seb is a Platform Architect with over 20 years’ experience working with organizations of all shapes and sizes to get the very best out of Microsoft technologies including SharePoint, SQL Server, Exchange and System Centre. Over the last 5 years, I have successfully launched several technology companies providing consultancy, hosting and Cloud services and I sit on the board of a number of consulting companies in an advisory capacity. Currently, I am focused on providing consultancy to Microsoft partners and customers that are looking to utilize Microsoft technologies in Cloud, big data, intranet and web scenarios with a specific focus on large-scale implementation.

Fortunate to be a frequent speaker at conferences, in the community and at vendor events, he is an enthusiastic and active member of the Microsoft community in Europe, Africa and the USA. Seb is the proud creator of the AutoSPDocumenter project, a wee tool to help folks document SharePoint farms using PowerShell. When not working he enjoys the outdoors, producing music and spending time with my wife, young son and Barney the dog.
