In the interstices between finishing off a "rush job" piece of analysis for ONE customer and a conference call with a vendor on behalf of ANOTHER it’s time to catch up with a piece of news…
As some of you will know I have a new job in IBM…
I’ve joined Software Group’s Worldwide Banking Center of Excellence (WWCoE for short) as their z/OS System Performance person.
So, it’s a pretty similar job but with a new focus: The World. 🙂 And, more specifically, mainly banks. Mainly, but not ENTIRELY, banks. So, I know some of my readership is from customers I’ve worked with in the past who don’t happen to work in banking. I don’t regard this as "so long and thanks for all the fish" as far as they are concerned.
And I don’t reckon to be doing fewer conferences but (hopefully) more. And already the season is shaping up that way.
For me, I like the travel and I like the chance to work with customers I’ve not reached yet, some of whom have REALLY thorny problems I can help with.
As my Dad said recently on the phone "it’s the job you’ve always wanted". And now I’ve got it, watch out World. 🙂
