iTech Solutions
Tech Solutions Consultant
Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan Area
A Tech Solutions Consultant for iTech Solutions Group, IBM Champion for Power, IBM Fresh Face, founder of the “Midrange Meetup” in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on the steering committee for YIP’s (Young i Professionals), and on the board for SEMIUG (South East Michigan IBM i User Group). I spend most my professional time working with clients running on IBM Power Systems and especially IBM i. With a background and passion for lean manufacturing my mind is wired to seek the most efficient means toward producing a desired result. IBM Power Systems think the same way, and they can, due to IBM owning the whole solution stack. We believe in extreme efficiency, not sprawling server farms that require Band-Aids, duct-tape and lots of attention. Efficiency within the walls of the data center can and is driving competitive advantage across all industries. I believe it’s my duty to share my knowledge and experiences with companies, so they can make an educated decision prior to purchasing that next x86 data center brick. I also speak at conferences and local user group meetings, attend industry conferences/events, and deliver opinions, ideas, and lessons learned through social media and authoring articles.
