Enterprise-level systems and data center administration is where
my interests lie. Large scale role outs, systems architecture, platform
and hardware management, deep automation and enterprise scale alerting
I am increasingly interested in IT policy, how to handle and deal with the challenges of large IT organizations. Structuring knowledge sharing, collaboration, documentation, aspects of ITIL, best practices, etc.
I am also interested in IT security, and managing security in large IT environments.
I like to think out of the box and ask the hard questions. I assume nothing and always try to build context and a sense of the big picture in everything I do. I enjoy extreme complexity and digging into, and making myself master of, complex IT systems. The devil is in the details. Because of the amount of importance I place on accuracy of information, context and detail, I will often be the go-to guy for understanding how something -actually- works. In my communications, I always provide context and prefer giving too much information, that too little.
I am a collaboration junkie. I love tools that make it easier to share information with people, and to connect to others. I am a great proponent of introducing social software into the enterprise, such as blogs, forums, wiki's etc. I am a fan of Microsoft's Sharepoint technology, and will often refer to it as a good starting point to achieve higher forms of collaboration and information dissemination.
