Why did you join TDS?
I am an Information Technology professional with over 20 + of experience and specializing in VMware virtualization for the past 10 years. I have taken projects that are small to large scale to help customers get where they want to go with their challenging IT initiatives. While working at VMware for a highly sensitive migration project. VMware partnered with TDS to complete all three phases of the migration initiative. I was pretty impressed with the professionalism of the team and especially the capabilities of TransitionManager. I am a firm believer in always working for a company that can provide exceptional business solutions to customers and stand by their products. TDS left an impression on me and when an opportunity opened up, I took it, and here I am!
What were you doing prior to TDS and what skills do you bring with you?
I was working for VMware as a Senior Consultant providing expertise in VMware vSphere upgrades, pre-sales migration calls, vSphere Health Checks and assist in any migration initiates that went into red alert. By joining TDS, not only do I bring my 10+ years of VMware experience, but also migration experience in all those three phases. In addition, I am able to wear many hats during the different phases of projects and have experience working with customers in different industries.
What’s your perspective on our industry, our technology and why it’s important?
As business objections change, costs are one of the main drivers that make organizations change direction on how they look at operating expenses (OPEX) and capital expenses (CAPEX). Most organizations look at their IT infrastructure as a whole to try to find where they can save money. In order to make that happen, organizations are moving their workloads to cloud solutions with the help of third-party partners who can bring in that expertise from bringing to end. The end result is an organization saving in OPEX and CAPEX in a true hybrid model.
TDS brings deep expertise and years of experience helping organizations discover their assets and dependencies and building a road map on how to migrate those workloads, with minimal risks and reduced costs. It couldn’t be more relevant today and I couldn’t be more excited to deliver those solutions.
