Today is my last day as a Microsoft Dedicated Premier Field Engineer. I have been supporting our enterprise customers as a PFE (Dedicated) for the last 5 years. This role has enabled me to see some of the largest and more complex OpsMgr 2007 deployments out there. It is a unique role, where I was exposed to many facets of SCOM… it really enabled this blog to provide the material over the last few years.
I will be starting Monday as a Data Center TSP (Technical Solution Professional), which is a fancy way of saying Technical Sales. I will now be covering the Microsoft System Center suite of products. SCCM, SCOM, Opalis/Orchestrator, DPM, and Avicode.
I will still be blogging on a regular basis…… but I anticipate the nature of this blog will change. I will be covering a lot broader range of products, instead of focusing only on OpsMgr. I also imagine that things will get more deployment and design focused, probably not as rich with “early to market” issues and challenges like I have seen in the past.
That said – PFE is hiring! If you are interested in working for Microsoft – we have a LOT of open positions all over the US (including my vacant position) for almost all the Microsoft technologies. Simply visit http://careers.microsoft.com and search on “PFE”. Many of the positions are non-location specific and you can work from almost anywhere! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly via the blog contact form.
