My New Job

(Originally posted 2006-04-07.)

As of today I have a new job.

  • I still work for IBM.
  • I’m still UK based.
  • I still do performance analysis with customers in the same way.

But some things have changed:

  • I now work in Software Group, rather than what’s now called Global Technology Services.
  • I now have a geographical territory that stretches from Rejkavik to Vladivostok, and from Stavanger to Cape Town. I would quite like to visit all of those. πŸ™‚ Actually there’s a hole in the middle that isn’t mine. 😦 But then IBM organisation was always a little unfathomable. πŸ™‚

So, in practical terms very little changes for those customers who already know me. In fact I might be able to be a little more responsive – in case you’re planning any unforeseen crises. πŸ™‚ And I hope to be meeting many more (really interesting) customers in more far-flung places. I’m already told to expect to be able to do more presenting, writing and looking after user groups. So I think that’s all goodness.

So, what’s not to like? πŸ™‚

I'm a mainframe performance guy and have been for the past 35 years. But I play with lots of other technologies as well.
