I am passionate about the work that I do for my Customers. I work as an IT/Business consultant, for medium to large companies across a variety of vertical markets.Though each of my Customers has unique businesses and unique concerns, in all cases there is a need to progressively and opportunistically close the alignment gap between the business and IT.
We live at a time in which the underpinnings of IT services are, or are on the path to be, commodities. Thank goodness for open standards and mature governance frameworks. The Business has options now. IT organizations that have embraced these opportunities can count themselves as accelerators and enablers for the Business they serve.
Across the board, my Customers are very smart. They understand the business that they serve. They understand the new technologies, and are beyond the ‚Äúhype‚Äù phase of the technology adoption curves. They recognize and face the challenges before them and they show a strong sense of urgency in their desire to improve the levels of IT services in their firm.
As a consultant, I serve my Customers in the areas of IT Governance, IT-Business Alignment, IT Strategy and Planning, Data Center consolidations, BC/DR, IS Security, and strategic roadmaps for specific infrastructure technologies.
This is truly exciting work. This work has a direct and positive impact on the value of IT to the Business. I can‚Äôt think of a time in my career when the work I do is as impactful to the Business and its Customers. These are exciting times.
