Fanatical about Technology
For as long as I can remember I've been interested in how things work, this soon evolved into a hunger for solving problems. By the age of 16 I was working full-time in the IT department of my local council and I've never looked back.
Over the years I've worked in many industries and on both sides of the fence, as a customer and as a consultant. One thing that has remained the same is my appetite for learning. Every new problem is an opportunity to gain knowledge, and everything I learn I use to help my customers and partners to improve their businesses.
Technology challenges are my bread-and-butter, from simple guidance, a second opinion or a full-blown project implementation I'll be excited to be involved.
Whilst I would consider myself a technology generalist, I have in depth specialist skills and experience with technical architecture and design of IBM Cognos software systems and all their underlying technologies.
Whether you’re a small or medium sized business looking for help or a large multinational company looking for technical expertise within the IBM Cognos product suite, please get in touch – I would love to help.
