If you want to know something about me… this is the right blog tab to read it 🙂
I’m an IT enthusiast, interested in all aspects of it, ranging from desktop to datacentre management, from an excel spread sheet to the most complex CRM, whether is a network equipment, computer or storage device, and if it’s running Windows, Linux or OSX flavours. And I have about 19 years experience with those and many IT other solutions, most of them as a System Administrator.
I work with Microsoft software, but I never refuse a chance to test and integrate with a different platform. I made this choice so I could get a deep knowledge (dll level if necessary) and to be a good professional with those solutions. I’m not a MS fanatic (don’t have any tattoo or posters) and I don’t consider Microsoft software better than others…. every solution is good if it fits our needs.
I spent 15 years trying to be part of Microsoft, but after the 10th attempt I got the message and realize I just don’t have the profile (or enthusiasm it was referred as the last interview) and gave up.
I worked at a Telecom Group as a Pre-sales IT consultant and system architect. My main role was to make Unified Communication and Videoconference service proposals. This includes design, consulting, price quotes, write an appealing proposal to a customer and, whenever it’s possible, implementing it. My solutions were (of course) based on Windows, Exchange and Lync Server. But since was at a Telecom company I also work and integrate with telephony solutions such as Cisco UC.
Later I also accumulate work as System Engineer deploying and managing the companies solution for Cloud Service Provider.
Currently I work as a Senior Systems Engineer responsible for a large Lync 2013 scale deployment:
– 13’000 users worldwide
– 4 High-Availability Lync 2013 pools (~50 server roles)
– Integration with CUCM/CUBE, Genesys Contact center, NICE recording systems integration, E911 emergency
My important work rule is: “There is only space to improve a solution. Even if it’s already a good one in place.”
…also life should be lived like a continous improvement. Unfortunaly it has always a bad ending to the hero.
