I wanted to take a second to do a short introduction (an elevator pitch) on who I am and what my team does. I’ll also link to a forum posting I have out where I’d love some help and discussion. I’ll try and be brief and stay out of my “sales pitch” mode.
My name is Michael Daubman and I’m one of the 3 system z managers within IBM’s System Technology Group Lab Services. Our group (and my peers across all IBM brands) have a focus to help support emerging and niche technologies for our clients. Additionally, we enable, are subcontracted by, and transfer skills to our business partners to allow support clients in areas that are sometimes hard to skills for.
One of my personal goals has been to find gaps in support from our clients and business partners and build my team to fill those gaps in the areas of Security and Consolidation. As a result, our “Compliance Mitigation Services, “Green” and “Consolidation” business has grown well with significant demand. Now, I’m trying to make sure we are ready with support for areas that are newly emerging (or that may just be showing signs of needing support) . This blog represents a GREAT way for me to explain what I’m doing, where we’re growing and look for some specific feedback from the “world”. I have some interesting topics that I’m planning to post about in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
If you’re ambitious, take a hop over to our forum. There is already a question out and I’d love to hear from everyone and anyone!
