This is the start of an awesome podcast series called MVPITPro. I am excited to be working with MVP Andy Syewicze from Altaro Software to produce this series of podcasts for all the IT Pros out there. Episode one is with my fellow MVP and friend Symon Perriman of FanWide, and 5nine Software before that. 🙂 So sit back and enjoy the ride!!! And maybe you learn a little bit about being an MVP!!
In my 20+ years of experience in the IT industry, I’ve seen few—if any—clients who use a Windows environment exclusively. It’s a heterogeneous world. The reality is, most organizations prefer to choose from a variety of operating systems, software, hardware and hypervisors; depending on what best suits the information needs of the organization. In this day and age, it’s necessary to have a cloud solution flexible enough to support it all.
It’s no surprise that most players in the cloud space are pushing collaborations and creating a new type of partnership ecosystem where multiple vendors’ products complement and support one another. Microsoft is no exception. Microsoft once solely focused on proprietary, closed software. Now it embraces Linux, an open-source operating system, and a significant competitor. For those looking to run Linux on Hyper-V, that’s good news. Not only does it mean you’ll experience better performance, but it’s proof positive that things are changing.
Today, I am excited to announce I will be joining the awesome team at 5nine Software as Director of Product Management. My primary job responsibilities will be for the product strategy and direction of 5nine’s security and management solutions.
So, you ask, why Product Management? It’s been a lifelong dream to be part of shaping the direction of a technology solution. By joining 5nine, I hope to simplify IT, Cloud and beyond, because there’s always a better way 🙂
“What prepared me for this was very surprising looking back.”
