Technological Problem Solver

Knowledge, when overly guarded, can become stale or frequently lost.

In today’s complex systems there are few reasons to allow technology problems to create business difficulties. Its an exciting time to be solving these issues, as more and more often we’re seeing problems that took 10 man-years to address fall over with the right application of a freely available tool or methodology.

The trick, of course, is knowing which system to apply to which problem domain – and being willing to embrace the changes that come with that flexibility (such as throwing away 5 man-years that got you 50% complete in exchange for a week of configuration and testing of a new approach, which is far easier said than done for most organizations but vital to remaining competitive).

Technology problems can be complex; I can help make them simpler. And once they’re simpler, they can be solved.
